Reflect and Ackowledge (at the end of every year, we put up a post where the members of CrossFit MSD can “reflect and ackowledge other members, trainers, friends etc)

Hi I have been working out at CrossFit MSD for a little over 18 months and I can’t speak highly enough about the crossfit methodology and how it changes your mind and body.  My name is Ty Clark I am in my late 30’s and within myself I feel great.  I can’t speak highly enough about Mason, his programming, passion for fitness, and community of people with in the gym that make you feel a part of something great, I have never experience this in ANY other gym/fitness environments.  Not only with in Mason’s gym but the whole crossfit community in Tasmania, Australia, the world,  you can (I have) go to any other crossfit gym to train and are welcomed with arms WIDE open by people who are interested in you! Bloody amazing.

I encourage all ages to try Crossfit as the Crossfit model is tailored for all ages, fitness levels, and disabilities.  With in 6 months of joining MSD I dragged my teenage son in and he has never looked back, he has a focus, great role models around him full of encouragement and praised.  As a father it’s great to participating alongside him pushing each other for ultimate bragging rights at home.

Give this Crossfit thing a go you will be amazed at what you are capable of.

Dear Mason

It has been almost 12 months since I walked into your box with unknown expectations, and during that time have now found myself willingly attending at least 5 days a week unless I am out of the state, even then, if I have been away on extended holidays I have managed to find a Crossfit box and worked out with them. Globally every box has the same vibe, it’s so awesome.

I once spoke with you and you asked me what my goals were… and I still really don’t know, but I did really want to learn to do kipping or strict pullups, deadlift 100kg, do a wall climb or handstand pushups do more than 1 Toes to bar in 12 minutes J, not really, but that’s because I couldn’t do them. I amaze myself as to how excited I get on actually achieving these movements, though my kips are still not pretty.

Generally I have a gym membership and use it for 3 months before I go on holidays to get into some sort of shape, which was my original reason for turning up in August 2015 as I was going on holidays in January, so after this time, what was my goal?

I still don’t have any set goals (but hope to run in the Burnie 10). as it has now become part of my day, rain snow or shine and whilst I find the WODs and lifting challenging, I do not find anything I really dislike except perhaps kettlebell swings.

I find myself some days at work wondering why I am doing this as my legs and shoulders hurt and it’s an effort to move and I think there is no way I could possibly workout tomorrow, but the alarm goes off, I get up and rock on in for another morning of exercise, and so it repeats. Your words are “just get used to it”. Well I still haven’t but some days are better than others and I so don’t want to say, “I’m too old for this”.

I have thoroughly enjoyed these 12 months and have met some wonderful people, I love the inclusion and the comradery from all who attend; from those who are beginners to experienced competitors of all ages. And how encouraging they are even when you are the last to finish, or pressing a 15kg bar over your head.

I would like to thank you for your assistance, advice and coaching over the last 12 months and I am looking forward to what I will be achieving in the next 12 months, perhaps wacky Wednesday to go along with Happy Tuesday!!

I would also like to congratulate you on your professionalism and enthusiasm you bring to your business


Kind Regards
