Meet me at the bar...

People say to me all the time, 'You have no fear.' I tell them, 'No, that's not true. I'm scared all the time. You have to have fear in order to have courage. I'm a courageous person because I'm a scared person.'

Coaches Choice: Ben P

“Ben consistently attends CrossFit (6.30am crew) and gives every work out his maximum effort.

He is currently working hard to get into his new wedding suit for September, although he may need a wider jacket given his love of a strict pull up!

Last Saturday Ben stepped up to the plate and smashed through the Hero WOD ‘Hildy’ solo. He never gave up and made sure he saw it to the end.. Great effort Ben..”

– Brandon D and Gideon P

Thursday

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!
