January Member of the Month

February 9, 2017

We are already two weeks into February, but, better late than never to recognise our first member of the month for 2017! From Mount Eden, you will now see him smashing kipping pull ups like they’re nothing, David! 
David has been a member with us since September last year, and has already come on in leaps and bounds in these short few months. We cant wait to see what 2017 has in store for you David. 

Get to know David a little better below: 

How long have you been CrossFitting and Why do you CrossFit?

Just over 4 months. I do it to keep fit and feel good. After going to a normal gym and doing the old back/bi/chest/tri routines I got pretty bored and found it hard to motivate myself, so I stopped going. I wanted exercise that was more challenging and more satisfying. CrossFit is definitely the one for that. 

What do you love about CrossFit/Health101?

I love the constant variation in classes and movements. It never feels like you’re doing the same old workout day after day. Health101 coaches have been awesome. They know the individual members so know weights you’re capable of doing and what parts of your body will hurt with certain movements. This means they can recommend alternatives to avoid injury. It is a great environment to train in. 

What’s your favorite movement? 

Definitely the pull up. I couldn’t do one when it started so it gives me joy to do two in a row. 

What’s your favorite WOD? 

I love the longer ones. I Get a good sense of satisfaction when you complete them (or like in my case get to the time cap without passing out). The longest I’ve done is 12 days of christmas so its the winner at them moment. 

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?

I think just generally feeling healthier has been the biggest change. I didn’t think it would happen so fast but after only a few months I definitely feel fitter, healthier and have more energy. And even though my back still gets a bit sore, it is a million times better since doing crossfit. I can see why people get hooked on this. I certainly am. 

What is something that we don’t know about you?  

My toes are webbed…not really.
