Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I worked for EVAPCO Australia as a marketing engineer for about 1 year before moving to good old Baltimore in January of 2013. Shout out to my boyfriend D.Murphy who suggested Crossfit!
I grew up Singapore with my 2 elder sisters (Claudia and Charlene) and my parents (Dad and Mum) who were both police officers. I moved to Sydney, Australia just shy of turning 21 to complete my degree in Engineering. Fun Fact: I have 2/3 of a normal right lung since I was 15 years old.
I was fortunate to have been exposed to several sports: running with my dad was a big on the weekends, and playing netball, judo, volleyball and dancing for the school. Of all the sports I played, Netball is my most loved.
What has changed since starting CrossFit?
After starting Crossfit in February, I feel comfortable in my skin and smoother around the edges. Gone are the days of dreading going to the gym. Since joining Crossfit, I’ve found consistency and happiness in “wod-ding” out. It’s freaking amazing! Here’s the progression:
Change is good.
Crossfit is better!
Crossfit Federal Hill is best!
What do you enjoy most about CFH?
First and foremost: The Coaches, Geo & Allie, Brian and Matt. You won’t find a more awesome group that is down to earth, humble and genuinely happy for your success and progress. The community: That which makes the gym a warm and welcoming place. They lift you to complete that final leg. I have made so many friends in the first 5 months. I’m so blessed!
Least favorite movement?
Burpees + over the bar.
