James Saunders Athlete of the Month for July

James Saunders Athlete of the Month for July

Who are you? 

I’m James, I truly pride myself on my passion, drive and focus to better myself while trying to help the people around me. Originally from Perth 10 Years ago I decided to make Melbourne my home. Being in Bacchus Marsh with my husband for 7 years, where we have built a home, our careers and soon starting our family.

Why CrossFit?

Coming from a Dancing/Ballet background I found it challenging to find something that excited me but pushed me physically (as I like to eat-which also likes to hang around my body). Crossfit was something where I have been pushed to my physical and emotional limits, that with the support of others to help push and drive myself has truly been amazing. To be Accepted and seen as equal to people has always kept me coming back to the Crossfit community.

 What is your favorite WOD?

My favorite WOD would be Fran but any work out with a barbell and some cardio won’t go astray either.

Who or What inspires you?

Crossfit Geelong was the first box where I had met people that actually inspired me to be better than what I can be and to strive to be more like them. There are truly many inspirational people there but, My Husband Nicolas Inspires me the most, taking me for who I am that inspires me to be better every day just like him.

Advice for new comers?

Advice to new comers is to just come and embrace a community of people who enjoy being together and training to whatever ability they have. Maybe a crazy little dance and banter too always makes it fun for new comers.
