The second annual cfay summer throwdown
We are extending an open invitation to all friends of CrossFit Aylesbury to our second annual CFAY Summer Throwdown NEXT SUNDAY (June 4th)!
Just as last year we will have multiple athletes completing 4 Workouts across the day - with event 1 kicking off at 8.45am and running through until approximately 5pm.
Following this there will be an awards ceremony followed by Beers & a BBQ!
What to expect;
A wide range of athletes, from young to not-so-young, from competitive and experienced crossfitters to those who will be taking part in their very first CrossFit competition!
The workouts will be challenging, accessible to all and fun to watch.
If you have been thinking about getting started at CrossFit Aylesbury then this is a perfect opportunity to take a look at what CrossFit, as well as the fantastic community at CFAY, is all about.
If you're already a seasoned member you will either already be signed up to compete, or alternatively come along to support all of your fellow members and join in the sunshine and festivities.
See you there!
Meet Jack...our member of the month!
- Favourite moment since starting CrossFit?
When I recently hit a new PB on my deadlift - a massive 255kg!
The first partner WOD I did, when Helen almost killed me!
It made me realise how far I've got to go!
-When did you start at CrossFit Aylesbury and why?
I started in January 2017.
I fancied a new challenge and a break from the "gym" scene and ended up loving CrossFit so much that I'm not interested in going back to a normal gym!
-What impact has CrossFit had on you since beginning?
It definitely made me realise how unfit and inflexible I was and how much CrossFit can improve so many different aspects of my fitness: strength, CV fitness, flexibility, muscular endurance. I've also enjoyed learning lots of new lifting techniques and exercises that I have never done before.
-What are your future goals?
Too many to list all of them! But probably the most important ones would be:
• learn how to muscle up
• become fitter and leaner
• improve flexibility so I will be able to OVERHEAD SQUAT!!
It's been great to see Jack's progress in his relatively short time at CrossFit Aylesbury - we can't wait to see where his potential will take him!
