I started CrossFit after being at the gym for 5 months and loving it,  my whole life I have been really active but after finishing school I started getting a bit lazy, my fitness was always good but my strength wasn’t there. A workmate had been talking about CrossFit for a while, so after a few weeks of contemplating I decided to contact WOF and give it a go. I haven’t been back to the gym since: no regrets. 

When I turned up to my first class at WOF I was really nervous and anxious to see how I would compare next to the big kids, I didn’t want to make a fool of myself. I knew no one and I was really out of my comfort zone since I was so used to working out by myself.  Everyone was so friendly and supportive and after a couple classes I felt totally comfortable and now it’s like being part of a big family. GemmaStory

My first bright spot was getting my first kipping pull up and handstand push up from the floor, they were two of my goals for the year and I didn’t think I would manage to get them for a wee while. Without the encouragement I got when I did give them a try I don’t think I would have been able to do it.

Right now I really want to be able to handstand walk for more than a couple steps. I’m also wanting to continue to get stronger and fitter and maybe one day I’ll be able to do a muscle up. I don’t have a specific favourite memory at WOF, I enjoy all my time there and I enjoy being with people who have similar goals and aspirations as me.
