What got you into CrossFit?

My brother and sister-in-law have been hyping CrossFit up for years- they told me to join the cult lol. When Derek and I moved to Brantford we saw an ad for Alchemy, decided to tried a class (couldn’t walk for a week after) and have been hooked ever since! 

What have you loved about Alchemy?

The coaches encouraging me to go beyond my limits. Whether that be by telling me to use a heavier weight or do a more difficult modification of a movement – they always push me to challenge myself! 

What has been your proudest Alchemy moment to date? 

My first rope climb! 

What are your CrossFit goals for the future?

To continue getting stronger and improve on cleans and kip swings. 

If you could design the perfect workout, what would it include?

Lots of squats. 

What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in yourself since you started CrossFit?

I am definitely a lot stronger! 

When you’re not at the gym, what’s your favourite thing to do?

Exploring different breweries/wineries, spending time at my cottage, paddle boarding, water skiing and spending time with family and friends! 

What’s your favourite local Brantford food spot?

Steel Wheel – technically not a food spot but their pizza is delicious!
