When and why did you start training with us here at CrossFit MSD?
I started in October 2017, I decided I needed to get my butt into gear and get active outside of my hockey season. I googled boot camps, fitness classes in/around Burnie and CrossFit MSD came up in my searches. It was probably the free trial session that got me in the door (it was the coaches and other cross fitters that kept me coming back though)
What have you achieved since training with us at CrossFit MSD?
I have achieved so much since I started. I thought it would be so much harder, but if it wasn’t for the encouragement from everyone I wouldn’t have achieved half of what I have. Not only improving my fitness but confidence levels at the same time.
Who is Holly away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life, etc
I work full time at a bottle shop, play hockey in winter and am training to be a volunteer for Ambulance Tas. Love the sun and warmth, and if I could spend every day at the beach with good company or a book or both I’d be set. My plan is to slowly see the world, holidays are usually spent exploring which is fun.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself?
I did a solo trip to Phuket for a week where I went bungy jumping and scuba diving where I found plenty of “dory” fishes 🙂 but no Nemos haha.
What are your goals for the next 12 months?
Next 12 months include improving my health and well being while enjoying life and a snowboard trip to NZ hopefully.
Do you have any words or some advice to anyone who may be on the fence about doing CrossFit?
Literally just jump in and give it a go. Until you’ve attended a class you just have no idea how fun it actually is. I have never been a “gym person” but Cross fit is something else entirely, its a family where everyone encourages you, celebrates your wins with you and makes you WANT to come back each day and work on being the best you can be.
