Who are you? 

Hi, my name is Issy and I have lived in Geelong my whole life, 12 years to be exact. I am currently a year 7 student at Kardinia International College. I have always loved PE classes at school and have tried to keep active. I have always been very competitive and like a new challenge. When I am not doing CrossFit I’m playing hockey, netball or competing in rowing and athletics.

Why CrossFit?

My dad (Andrew) got me into CrossFit about a year and a half ago, as he thought it would benefit me. Before CrossFit I tried lots of different sports, but I never really felt motivated to train and it would usually feel like a chore. When I started CrossFit I liked seeing my improvement and this motivated me to continue getting fitter and stronger. CrossFit has developed into a passion that no other sport has been able to do, and I am definitely grateful for what CrossFit has helped me with.

What is your favourite WOD?

My favourite WOD would probably have to be Cindy, but I love Cleans!

Who or What inspires you?

My dad and the people I am surrounded by at the gym inspire me the most. Everyone is so kind and motivational. Even when you’re in the middle of a workout and you have no energy left, the athletes and coaches know the right things to say to make you keep going.

Advice for newcomers?

  1. Make sure you have good technique before you load on weights
  2. Make sure you warm up and cool down (you don’t want to hurt yourself)
  3. Show up! (you will regret it if you don’t)
