Integrity. It’s one of the first things that people mentioned when I first heard about CrossFit almost six years ago. A sport where you’re given crazy workouts, where regardless of how long it takes you to finish the wod (workout of the day) your pride is in the honest effort you gave. I drank the… Continue reading Why I probably won’t be going back to CrossFit…at least not in South Africa
You may have to fight a battle more than once to win it. Fight for what you want your life to look like. A couple of weeks ago I deleted all of my posts on Instagram. We've all been on a page before and thought the person who deleted all their posts to be a… Continue reading Fight
For as long as I can remember, I have always been part of the club of women that put on muscle (and unfortunately fat,) very quickly. This has meant that even if I go without doing things like push ups (who wants to do those anyway?) my arms are always defined, T-Rex and I are… Continue reading Mesmerizing
The Open is done and dusted, invitations for regionals have been sent out. The best part of the CrossFit season is almost upon us. In this segment of Athletes’ corner, I have the honour of presenting to you Mitch Spjut. I don’t know about you guys, but there’s something about these segments that has me… Continue reading Athletes’ Corner: Mitch Spjut
Can you remember the first workout move you ever did? No? Don’t worry I’ll help you out, it was the squat. It’s the first thing we do as babies, we do it without even thinking about maintaining that 90 degree angle. We’re naturals at that age! The fairytale would be that we stay that natural… Continue reading Drop it like a squat…
‘Change can be powerful, if we are brave enough to evolve with it.’ The hardest part of CrossFit is finding a box. Finding a coach that you connect with and people that are on the same wavelength as you are. A place where positivity is felt the minute you step in! In the wake of… Continue reading P is for positive!
This final piece of athletes' corner is the best...okay, I'm going to say that about every athlete that I interview because it's the truth. Some of the athletes you'll see in this growing feature, I have the honour of calling them my friends...real friends, not the imaginary kind that solely exists in my head haha!… Continue reading Athletes’ Corner Part III: Adrian Conway
If I had to ask you about the most important part of a CrossFit box, what would your answer be? Facilities? Location? And then maybe after a little bit more thought, you'd say the coaches. In my opinion, CrossFit coaches are what make this sport unique and unmatched by any other. My first foray into… Continue reading Athletes’ Corner part II: Adrian Conway
In my efforts to be the best athlete I can be, I have explored different things that can help in legally enhancing your mental and physical capacities during a wod, and especially for the competitive athletes, during a competition, one of these things or techniques, is mindfulness. Due to a back injury, 2017 was a… Continue reading Mindfulness, what’s it all about?
In light of what this blog covers (faith, fitness and everything else,) as a Christian first and athlete second, I can attest to the fact that 9 times out of 10, God has taught me the most when I am training. There exists a beautiful intersection between faith and fitness, one gleans the physical body,… Continue reading Athletes’ Corner part I: Adrian Conway
