What got you into CrossFit?
Alysha Azzopardi and Michelle Zareski are responsible for getting me into the gym. Their persistence and excitement towards Alchemy was infectious.
Also as the Store Manager of lululemon Lime Ridge, I wanted to attend a class so that I could get connected/related with our Ambassador Broder, then one class turned into almost 100 and here we are!
What do you like about Alchemy?
The coaches, members and overall vibe.
The idea of crossfit made me so nervous, the first few weeks I was scared to go in. All of the coaches were so fun, kind and patient that I could drop my ego and learn something new.
Everyone at the gym goes out of there way to make you feel comfortable and I appreciate that so much.
What has been your proudest moment at Alchemy?
Hmmmm, I feel like I am always bursting with pride when I leave a class, but I surprised myself the most when I did a rope climb… now I just need to learn how to get down.
What are your CrossFit goals for the future?
I want to be able to do a strict pull-up by the end of this year.
If you could design the perfect workout, what would it include?
If I could choose a workout it would include running, wall balls and push press, but I like the versatility of what each day can bring.
What’s the biggest change you’ve seen in yourself since you started CrossFit?
The reminder that great things happen outside my comfort zone. It’s important to try new things to learn something new about yourself.
When you’re not at the gym, what’s your favourite thing to do?
Hang out with my husband and daughter in the sunshine.
What’s your favourite local Brantford food spot?
This months it seems to be Zaza’s Pizzeria.
