A slow and steady approach and taking the time to learn the movements properly will have you winning the CrossFit race, Brad says. And with the great coaches at 2600 keeping an eye on your form, you’ll notice more than a just a physical transformation from getting into CrossFit.
“The good old cliché ‘fit body fit mind’ is definitely how I look at my situation. CrossFit and all the CrossFit 2600 coaches have played a large part in making me deal with life’s day to day stresses easier. Their positive and professional attitude to coaching all types of people makes it enjoyable. “When
playing rugby in Sydney many years ago now I was running around at 105kg+ at my
peak, now I am around 78kg mainly thanks to CrossFit.
He says there are benefits at home, as well as at work from his re-energised approach to fitness:
My wife Louise also played a large part in encouraging me to join Crossfit 2600 as
she noticed changes in my attitude many due to not being fit and healthy. She mentioned about being a role model to our children and not talking the talk about being fit, doing it as well!
My work can be very stressful at times and working very long hours, I have found Crossfit has helped me deal with it the stresses.
I start work at 7am so I go to the 5.30am class, every time I have finished the
class I feel ready for what the day has in store for me.
