How did you come into contact with crossfit and what made you decide to start?
How did you get to know Lifemaxx® / Crossmaxx®?
I was introduced to Crossmaxx® through Marcha, at a Limassol event in Cyprus almost 6 yrs ago. Marcha spoke highly of this great brand, who was a pioneer in sponsoring Masters Athletes. The rest is history, and I have been with Crossmaxx® ever since.
What is your ultimate fitness dream / goal?
I fight agains the stereotype that because I am 55, I should look and act a certain age. I want to be the fittest I can be, to live a healthy lifestyle and through actions inspire others to do the same.
What is your favorite exercise and your least favorite exercise and why?
My favorite moves are everything that has to do with gymnastics. Because of my background in it, it is very natural for me. I hate Clean and Jerk. I don't know why, just have that feeling..
Do you have any tips / tricks for athletes?
Tips and Tricks for those who compete with me? Nah, not giving my secrets away ;)
In general: have a goal and please have fun! It is only a fitness program!
