IMPORTANT NOTE: We are not open on Good Friday and Easter Monday but we are open on all sessions on Easter Saturday! 8am, 9am & Cobra.. Use this time to rest and recuperate. A new cycle starts after this testing week and it is going to be awesome! Recovery and rest is as important as working out.
Justin is certainly a quiet achiever. But achieve he has done! He makes no fuss and is usually the first member in the gym stretching or working on a weakness before each session he attends. He has gotten so much stronger and every time I see him squat to depth I get a smile on my face, plus I am very proud of your Pull-ups! Like many other new members, when you started flexibility, power and strength were not your “friends”. They are now! Great work man! You’ll certainly love/hate your WOD!
Charge CrossFit Member Spotlight!
They call me…Justin.

How long have you been a Charger? About 16 months.
Favourite movement? No real favourite.
Least favourite movement? Anything involving upper body strength.
Favourite WOD? 12 Days of Christmas (in December, my third attempt, I managed to get the scaling right and actually finished it within the cut off).
Least favourite WOD? 15.2 (OHS & CTB Pull-ups) was a bit of an anti-climax (see comment about upper body strength)
What would your perfect WOD look like? I like the longer WODs, lower weights/more reps eg 12 days, “Nichole”
Favourite wholesome/Paleo meal? I’m married to a Malaysian, paleo is not an option, those people love their food.
Favourite movie/tv show? The Peaky Blinders (and The Fall because it is set in Northern Ireland).
Tell us something we may not know about you: I also go to a yoga class and am getting into trail running.
