So me and CrossFit…… where do I begin.

I started my fitness journey years ago with a variety of different sports, but it really took off

for me in high school when I started swimming for a local swim club. I swam for two years at

a competitive level attending state championships but never really going much further.

Soon after I tried out for the National Triathlon Team which I then went on to compete in and

carried on my training for a further two years until I started lifting weights.

I hit the gym in an aim to get bigger and stronger which then led me to the sport of

Powerlifting. I competed in powerlifting for two years in which I learned many techniques and

ways to shift heavy weight.

I struggled to get back into sport or any form of training after starting a family – I became a

real couch junky.

Reaching 118kg and feeling lethargic and just completely flat all the time my brother Lee

encouraged me to come and try out CrossFit Norsemen where he and his wife were

members. This went against some of my preconceived ideas of what CrossFit was

about……before attending.

After my first session and making a measly 12 Calories on the air bike and a total of three

box jumps before collapsing into the ground I was supported by another member, Nathan,

for my achievement………I was totally hooked.

Needless to say, my addiction to sport and drive for improvement kicked in 100% I could not

fathom how it was possible to be so fit and so strong at the same time but I was witnessing it

and I now wanted a piece.

Through the amazing coaching of Joey and Mark and the amazing help of all the friendly

members throughout the weeks I noticed myself slowly improving, getting fitter and stronger

by the day.

Within the first week I had completely turned my diet around to benefit my training and lost

five kilos in the first week, now two months down the track I am 15 kilos lighter and

physically fitter and stronger than before. My goals are to keep on improving and hopefully

start attending competitions.

I can honestly say that joining CrossFit Norsemen completely turned my life around and I

have never been more driven or eager to improve.

So that’s it from me and how I got myself into the spicy WOD’s that make us whinge and

moan but at the end of the day…..I love it and there’s nothing else I would rather be doing

than collapsing from the gruelling workouts, bandaging up my rope burn and getting better

and better each day.

The Advantage

Our coaches are there for you before, during and after the workout.

Proper form and technique will be explained to you before and during every exercise. They will take the time to know your name, find out what your goals are, what you might find difficult and scale the WOD to ensure you train safely and within your ability.

Coaches will hold you accountable to your goals because let’s face it, we all need a gentle nudge now and then, so expect an email if they haven’t seen you in a while!

You can’t out-train a bad diet. That’s why our coaches are focused on helping you eat right. We encourage members to ask questions, seek their advice, and read our coaches food blogs. Our coaches also oversee the food challenges we run here at CrossFit Norsemen.

Remember, all of these benefits are included in your unlimited membership.

CROSS
FIT 101

What is CrossFit?

CrossFit is “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity”. 

A program that is, by design, broad, general, and inclusive. A typical one hour CrossFit class generally consists of a 10-15 minute warm-up, 20-30 minutes of low intensity skill/strength training, 10-20 minutes of high intensity training (the WOD) followed by a 10 minute cooling down and stretching period.

During the class there is plenty of time to ask questions and keep up the fluids.

Constantly Varied

No two workouts are the same. Be prepared for anything!

High Intensity

Short periods of intense cardiovascular exercise with less intense recovery periods.

Functional Movements

Movements and exercises are based on real-world bio-mechanics like jumping, squatting and reaching.
