Val claims to be the laziest and stubbornest person on earth who hates exercise*.
After trying all kinds of diets, she found CrossFit and hasn’t looked back.
I first started at 2600 in 2011 doing one PT
session a week. I used to look at the group classes and think "these people are crazy" there is no way I will ever do this. I then left
Australia and when I returned three years later I gave it a go as my diets were no longer working (that’s what happens after you pass your 30s).
It took me two months to actually get up and attend the 6:30am class and it took me one year to smile during the classes (yes, I was grumpy - I love my sleep). But I kept going because 2600 taught me that to keep fit, you have to work hard and eat clean and that’s the best thing about 2600, the coaches educate you in how to eat clean, how to accomplish your
goals and the most important, they are tough, they really look at what you doing, so there is no way for you to cheat (believe me I have tried so many times).
So if your goal is to be fit for life, 2600 is the
best place to be :O) come and enjoy the ride.

The secret ingredient to long term gains: Fun. If you don't combine laughter and sweat in your training you're missing out! Let's hope Castro throws in juggling for time. #crossfit #team2600 #open2017 #crossfit2600 #kingston #keepsmiling
2600s self confessed trouble maker George has some hard learned advice for new starters - "don't be late".
But he encourages anyone concerned about tackling the movements in CrossFit to come in and give it a go.
"I think a lot of the reason people are scared or worried about taking up CrossFit is the Olympic lifting and those kinds of movements. But they don't need to be worried - that's what the coaches are there for. The coaches will worry about your technique and help you to get it right. They won't let you move on until you are able to do the movements correctly."

Yen turned down a volleyball scholarship in her native Malaysia to focus on her studies and stay close to family, but after settling into her career in Canberra, she found an outlet for her competitive and athletic interests at CrossFit 2600.
I wanted to go to a box where the coaches could understand me as an athlete and able to help me perfect my strengths whilst improving my weaknesses. 2600 came very highly recommended by many I've spoken to and in my opinion, if an affiliate is able to send athletes to the regionals every year, they must be doing something right with programming.
Remember tomorrow at 10:10am we will cover what's involved for the REBOOT 2017. Training/nutrition/sleep/mobility and water are our focus areas. Get your squad together ready for 4 weeks of health and fitness. #crossfit #canberra #sleep #nutrition #training #water #mobility #adsisasleep #chalkiesguns

Ads - Physiotherapist at Movehappy.
For someone who took three years to link double unders, Ads knows the
struggle can be real, but here’s his advice to those thinking about giving CrossFit a go:
DO IT. You'll not regret it. Be sensible with your training when starting out, listen to the coaches recommendations - yes, doing strength training actually helps with METCONs (metabolic conditioning/cardio). Particularly for large groups, what's more fun than working through the struggles of a workout than with your mates!
LISTEN to the coaches, they know their stuff. I have been to over 20 crossfit gyms around the world and may be biased but I truly feel we are spoilt here at 2600 with the quality of coaching. They really spend the time with you to work on your weaknesses and will always give you a multitude of scaled options to build to Rx-ing WODS.
2600 will be running a 4 week reboot from Jan 30-February 26th. Similar to last year nutrition/water/training/mobility and sleep will be the focus. Get your groups of 2/3+ and ask the coaches for any help. Info day on Jan 28th@10:10am straight after the T1 class. #crossfit #canberra #nutrition #pipinparis #tradiescorner
