Members of the Month for November 2016

simon-and-alison-members-of-the-month-for-october

This month we are acknowledging two of our awesome members. These guys come into the gym together, every day and have been improving in leaps and bounds. They haven’t done anything special this month but the reason we are awarding these guys is because over the last 12 months, they have been doing all the right things, every single day and we thought they deserved to be highlighted for their awesomeness. So, I lie, because doing all these small little things each and every day is something special. What I’m trying to say is that their effort has been constant and 100% every month. They are just being highlighted this month for all their hard work.

 

Ali

When and why did you guys start training with us here at CrossFit MSD?

Well, I (Ali) started in Feb 2015 with the goal of becoming a better (fitter) middle aged person, and you all looked to be really enjoying yourselves when I came to check it out.

What have you achieved since training with us at CrossFit MSD?

I can safely say I am stronger and fitter than when I first began and made many amazing friends. I never thought I would be able to snatch, overhead squat, clean and jerk, climb a rope, do a handstand push up and do pistols. My mind boggles when I stop to think what I have achieved. But there is so far to go still.

Who is Alison away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life, etc

I love to spend time with my awesome family, whether it be camping, hiking, fishing, watching a movie on the couch or laying out on the deck checking the stars out. Family is everything!! I spend most days of the week working in the office at Somerset Primary School with 370 odd kids.

Tell us a fun fact about you?

Fun Fact!!! – I love to have a good giggle….

What are your goals for the next year?

By this time next year, I hope to have the confidence in my abilities to enter a crossfit competition other than the open. I am getting better with that but still have a way to go, I keep stretching the benchmark.


Simo

When and why did you guys start training with us here at CrossFit MSD?

I (Simo) started in April 2015 after coming to see throwdown of 15.5 at the box between CrossFit MSD and the Strongroom,  it looked like awesome fun and a great way to get fit.

What have you achieved since training with us at CrossFit MSD?

I am so much stronger and fitter than I have ever been. I can do things I never thought I would be able to do like deadlift twice my bodyweight and overhead squats.

Who is Simon away from the box? Work, hobbies, family life, etc

I like to fly fish, camp, hike, spend time with my girls and enjoy a nice cold beer. I currently work as a welder making dangerous goods stores

Tell us a fun fact about the both of you?

Fun Fact!!!! I like to make everyone laugh – even when I’m trying to do double unders!!!!

What are your goals for the next year?

I would like to be able to do handstand push ups , linked toes to bar, double unders and improve my overhead squat.


I’m so proud of you guys….. Setting a great example to everyone out there on what you can achieve when you work hard for it. I look forward to seeing where you guys are at in 12 months from now.
