Quite simply because I love helping people and seeing them flourish.
I don’t think there is anything more rewarding than seeing someone else achieve their goals, no matter how small they are.
Once upon a time they were all I wanted to be able to do, and now I can. Which means if I can, you can.
My usual gym routine was becoming a little “samey” and someone suggested I try a CrossFit WOD…
A mixture of all the things I love and hate whilst a clock is timing you, I was hooked instantly.
The idea of doing a WOD and repeating it down the line to test myself really appealed to me. Every second faster or kilo heavier matters.
CrossFit reminds me every time I train that my body is capable of great things.
Why? Because I absolutely used to hate them, loathe them in fact … and now I love them.
Why? Because I knew I sucked at them and so I practiced (and practiced) to improve my technique.
I also love how such a simple movement (throw yourself onto the floor and get up again. Repeat) can be tweaked with an object (e.g. burpee over a box) and it’s a whole new level of intensity.

You owe it to yourself to try it, at least once.
The hardest part is often walking through the door but once you cross that threshold you’ll be so glad you did – you’ll sweat, laugh, (probably cry) push yourself, achieve great things, surprise yourself, believe in yourself and make like-minded amazing friends. The community is like no other.
I didn’t even like the taste of coffee before the pandemic!
It’s okay though, it doesn’t affect me…
Because who wouldn’t want to be a magical princess in a bad-ass outfit who takes a stand against evil… who just so happens to have a unicorn with rainbow wings!!
CrossFit is located on the Aston Road estate in Waterlooville.
Go over the roundabout at Sainsburys (this store will be on your right), and stay on Aston Road. Aston Road veers around to the right and we are in the top left hand corner, located behind some big black gates. If in doubt head for Sentry Storage and we are two doors down from them.
