CrossFit 42 South

Member of the Month for November 2017

I firstly want to say how sorry I am for this getting as far behind as it has. It is unprofessional of me, and there is no excuse at all, other than this has just got away from me. So, I’ll be putting out November, December then January within a few days of each other.

I’m sorry for the members who are being put under the spotlight, you should have been acknowledged sooner.

Karin Schleich member of month November 2017

When and why did you start training with us here at Crossfit MSD?
I started late May 2017. My friend Lisa had invited me along a few times and thought that I would enjoy it. I’ve always liked exercising but never really got the results that I wanted so I thought I would give Crossfit a go as I had heard many good things about this particular club – friendly staff, good atmosphere and after going along for a trial I saw the results of the other members and I haven’t looked back since!

What have you achieved since training with us?
Since starting I have improved my strength, flexibility, and confidence. I started out overhead squatting a broom handle and in this short time I have been able to overhead squat a 15 kilo bar! Yay! My strength is developing every day and I hope to soon be able to do a strict pull up and wall climb.

Who is Karin away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life etc
I’m a mum to three girls and Omi to my granddaughter. I currently work two jobs, full time at Tafe and part time at Stella Maris.
I live an active lifestyle, always getting outdoors when I can, spending time with my family down in Strahan out on the boat fishing or taking the bikes out.

What is a fun fact about you?
I have a very bad sense of direction in case you haven’t noticed haha – during the EMOM i am lost after the first rep – so please don’t follow me

What are your goals for the next 12 months?
I would like to master some of the more complex weight lifting moves (all of them), gain better mobility to help with the weight lifting and improve my cardio fitness.
