At the start of my journey I was 132kgs. After spending numerous years on the couch, the crunch came when I couldn’t walk to the end of the drive without wheezing, I couldn’t tie my shoes, open jars and I had no energy. I was unfit.
My early journey was with CrossFit Manaia in Masterton. I’ve spent two and a half happy years with them building my strength and confidence. Without Allan, Nga and the coaching team I wouldn’t be where I am today.
I have recently moved to SASSFit in Masterton to further progress my development as a CrossFit Athlete and to complete an apprenticeship as an Exercise Professional. I’m also going to do my Level 1 CrossFit Trainers Certification. To achieve my plans I will need to work on my fitness outside of classes.
My love of the sport has blossomed over the last few years and I am looking forward to all the possibilities that are open to me now.
Over the last two years, I’ve shed 66kg, become a scaled functional fitness athlete, a runner (I’ve completed 3 half marathons), a multi sport athlete and road cyclist.
