Member profile: Scott A
Member since: February 2016
Occupation: Hospitality Manager
Hobbies: CrossFit (Obviously) and generally enjoying life!
Favourite Food: Cheese & Pickle Sandwich and it has to be Branston pickle (sorry I’m English)
Favourite CrossFit Movement: I like a deadlift! But generally it’s all pretty exciting learning new movements and taking on things you’d never think of doing in a normal ‘gym’ - The Olympic lifting sessions are really challenging but rewarding.
Least favourite CrossFit Movement: There’s so much to learn so I don’t see any movement as being 'less favourite', just something I need to practice. Which excites me.
Favourite WOD: 'Bradshaw' it's my 'go to' WOD at the moment because things I want to practice!!
Least favourite WOD: None. I’m happy to give anything my best shot.
Results that you have achieved: I feel so much stronger and fitter than when I started. My recovery time has also improved dramatically and I can see the difference in my body shape.
3 month fitness goal: In all honesty it’s just to progress to the best of my ability and to work as hard as I can when I’m in the gym
What’s something we don’t know about you? I was a national bartending champion.
Why did you choose CrossFit? I chose CrossFit because personally I love the team environment and the competitive nature of things. I was warned about injury by several people but I just remember my first session at Resolve and getting more training and coaching in that one session than I’d get in a month of my previous gym. They really focused on good form and making sure you were safe. CrossFit can also seem a little ‘out of reach’ especially if you watch too many You Tube Clips, but it really is for everyone. Resolve has a great community feel and everyone is very supportive and friendly.
If you could name a WOD after you, what would it be? I’d name it ‘Resolve’ I don’t know what it would include but it would be a life changing experience!
