Joy has been with us for a few months now and has been an amazing addition to our community with her every and positive attitude. She promised Coach Lisa on Day 1 ‘I might complain but I will never quit on you.’, and try to her word she never has. We sat down and asked for her story behind joining CrossFit 4504 and her adventures to date.
1. What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
I needed a change. I was sick of being in a “gym rut” where no-one knew my name because there were so many members. Same classes, doing the same things every session. Boring!!!!!!!!
2. What was your first impression? How has that changed?
First impressions were, “wow, everyone is so friendly & genuinely wanted to get to know me”. The community feel has gotten stronger & stronger & I really feel very much a part of this awesome cross fit family. The positive culture here is like nothing I’ve ever worked out in before. You set a great example Lisa.
3. What was your first highlight?
The first 2 weeks were hard work but the highlight for me was about week 3 when I started to feel my fitness getting better & better. I felt alive again.
4. What are you working towards now?
I’m working towards improving my endurance & introducing some strength work too. Onwards & upwards for me now.
5. What’s your favourite CrossFit 4504 moment so far?
So many great moments for me since I started; Running 1km non-stop, Smashing out as many skips as you can throw at me, 10 minute deadlift hold challenge, I was very proud of myself that day, holding my own in partner WODs & supporting my partner equally, Training with my husband Rob & son James, therefore setting a good example to my kids that exercise can be fun & is a lifelong commitment. I’m hoping our daughter Liv will join us soon too in the box.
I just love this place
Thanks Joy!! We love having you as part of our family here at CrossFit 4504 and we can’t wait to help you continue to thrive and grow into the future!!
