Meet Apprentice Andy Smyth
I started Crossfit back in 2010 and instantly knew this was something special ,I was really into fitness at the time, regularly doing kickboxing and going to the gym on a daily basis but I felt there was something missing and I wanted a new challenge. When I heard about Crossfit I knew straight away that this was what I’d been waiting for, it was the perfect fit for me. The saying you hear from many people after trying Crossfit , ” I thought I was fit but I wasn’t Crossfit” definitely applied to me. My first workout was ” fight gone bad ” and I felt more beat up by this workout than any sparing session I had while kickboxing. The first few workouts really opened my eyes to the level of fitness Crossfit demands and the importance of good technique when training.
I was extremely impressed by both Michael and Dave’s passion for Crossfit. I couldn’t get enough of it from the beginning and everything was so new and interesting. I loved the mix of fitness and the sense of community at the box. It was amazing to find like minded people who had the same passion for health and fitness as I did. Crossfit isn’t easy by any means, but it’s the challenge that makes it so rewarding. What you learn about yourself in Crossfit can transfer into all aspects of your life. It makes you a better person, more determined not to give up when something gets tough and gives you the knowledge that others are there to help and motivate you.
Im 4 months into my apprenticeship with CFD, recently I traveled to Finland where I completed my Level 1 Crossfit Cert,Its been an amazing experience so far and I’m honored to be working with such high level coaches where I can be learning from the best.I look forward to improving my coaching skills and knowledge to help others better themselves and reach their goals.
Thanks for reading and see you in class,
