How were you introduced to CrossFit & How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I was trying to find a low-impact sport in order to avoid knee replacement surgery. Decided to strengthen the muscles instead. I started in 2014, mostly CrossFit Lite at the time.
What made you decide to join CrossFit Markham?
It seemed like there were some high level competitors coming out of the box.
Favourite Lifts/ Wods?
Is this a trick question?! 12 Days of Christmas LMAO
3 Things You Would Definitely Find in My Fridge…
Avocados, Mangoes, Tomatoes
Favourite Place to Eat:
Jimmy Johns in the US – have to get that #5 Italian. KFC for cheat day.
For CrossFit, I’m so much stronger since MCL surgery and I’ve avoided knee replacement. I’m still setting PR’s and learning new movements every month.
Something People Wouldn’t Know About Me:
I speak fluent Italian.
Biggest struggle in life?
In sport, stopping soccer and recovering from knee surgery. Went from being unable to run to where I am today.
Do You Have a Mentor or Someone You Look Up To? If So Who?
There are many awesome people that influence and inspire me. I see this as akin to a collage. All the various protagonists provide a small piece of inspiration, guidance and/or mentorship, that when put together provide a complete picture.
Who Inspires You?
Anyone that challenges themselves and strives to have others challenge themselves. We should always be growing.
