Tell us a little about yourself (i.e. work, hobbies) and how long you met/have known Bec for?
I’m a Veterinary Nursing, Yoga teaching, Crossfitting, Acupuncture and Chinese medicine student (phew!) who’s known Bec since September 2018. My partner Aaron and I moved to Brisbane earlier that year and had struggled to find a gym with both coaching and programming that matched what we adored in our home gym of Adelaide. From the very first moment we met Bec, it was love at first “HURRY UP!”
Where have you come from in your fitness journey? (i.e. where did it all start? What was your motivation, do you have any injuries that you have had to work through?)
My fitness journey began in a pursuit to be a marathon runner. After battling with many an injury (and realization that I have a body that’s not particularly well designed for long distance running) I began my Yoga journey and started picking up weights. I initially had a PT that encouraged my training in the direction of being a ‘fitness model’ but I didn’t feel it suited me very much (I love cake). So, I plucked up the courage to walk into my very first Crossfit gym, after the guy (my now partner Aaron) I was crushing on hard had told me he too was going to start Crossfit…. It’s been a competition between us ever since!
What made you choose Bec to be your personal trainer?
Bec’s no nonsense attitude and strong morals really align with my core beliefs. Plus, I desperately need someone who’ll tell me when I’m being a wuss, or cracking another tanty, or spending too long dancing around the bar instead of lifting it… the list goes on. More so, Bec’s fine tuned eye for detail in technique is far beyond any coaching skills I’ve experienced in the 3 years I’ve been doing Crossfit.
What changes have you seen in yourself since working one on one with Bec?
With Bec’s help I’ve been able to train myself out of some bad habits I acquired with poor lifting techniques. With these new skills I’ve noticed a huge shift in my strength and capability, something I would not, and had not, achieved on my own. I now also realize how much I twerk/shuffle my feet/dance around the bar before actually lifting something heavy- but we’re still working on that, hey Bec
