In the 'get to know our athletes' series our Crossmaxx athletes and ambassadors tell you all about how they got into CrossFit, what their goals are and they share tips and tricks! First up: Belinda!

 

How did you come into contact with CrossFit / weightlifting and what made you decide to start?
Via a fitness where I took classes based on crossfit. The one who thought the lesson that I should take a real crossfit lesson. After the first lesson, I was hooked and didn't leave. I do weightlifting from time to time, because the weight classes make it fun for me to participate. In crossfit I have little advantage in being small and light, in weightlifting I do.

How did you discover Lifemaxx/Crossmaxx?
I think that was already 5 years ago, I first came into contact through a photo shoot for the folder and through competitions of course.

What is your ultimate fitness dream/goal?
The CrossFit Games


What is your favorite exercise and your least favorite exercise and why?

I like a lot of things! I love chest to bar pull ups and barbell cycling The least favorite will be the combination of 2 exercises where length is a disadvantage, like rowing and wallballs. 

Do you have any tips / tricks for athletes?
Focus on your own performance, that is all you have control over and makes your CrossFit life a lot more relaxed. You cannot influence the performance of others, so do the best you can!
