Today we get to know Abby Voogt from CFJ HQ. Former dancer, always smiling (except for her workout face!), and one of the new foundations of the 5am warriors!

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A JOB?

I am a managing member of Egoli Kids Play School in Edenvale – the boring side of working at a nursery school but I love seeing all the kid’s smiley faces everyday 🙂

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TRAINING AT CFJ?

I joined CFJ in April 2014 but only really started training in May after all the public holidays.

HOW DID YOU FIRST HEAR ABOUT CrossFit?

My boyfriend started at another box last year sometime and he would not shut up about it so I had to see what all the fuss was about and after my trial class I was instantly hooked!

ARE THERE ANY MEMORIES FROM YOUR FIRST DAYS THAT YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE?

Well I was quite intimidated starting at a new CF box. Everyone looked super fit and strong, but everyone was so welcoming, friendly, chilled and made me feel so comfortable – really feel like a I have a second family at CFJ!

WHAT IS THE COOLEST THING THAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED AT CFJ?

Double Unders!! Oh my word I hated them until I got them and now I LOVE them 🙂

WHAT CHANGES IN YOUR HEALTH HAVE YOU NOTICED SINCE STARTING CrossFit?

CF is a huge stress relief for me. I definitely feel a lot stronger than before, starting to see muscles in my arms & back I didn’t know I had. Feel a lot healthier too! I haven’t been sick since I started CF this year.

FAVOURITE EXERCISE?

Mmm that’s a tough one because I love met cons but I also really enjoy Olympic lifting but if I had to choose one I would say snatches.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN CrossFit?

Haha definitely pull ups & pistols!

LIST SOME OF YOUR BIG GOALS.

  • Strict pull ups
  • Pistols
  • Increase my Olympic lifting kg’s
  • Take part in UWS in 2016
  • And if all goes to plan, CrossFit Regionals in 2017

WHAT IS YOUR NUTRITION FIT? (Paleo, Zone, anything and everything, etc.)

Before I started CF it was anything & everything, but since my first winter challenge I try my best to stick to Paleo 80/20, but I do enjoy my wine now and again!

IF YOU COULD INVITE 3 FAMOUS PEOPLE TO DINNER, WHO WOULD THEY BE?

Sean Connery; best James Bond ever, suave and a gentleman, as well as a man that could do anything.

Freddie Mercury; most iconic frontman of the best band, changed the music industry forever with his music, we would not have the music today if it were not for Freddie and Queen.

Sonnie-Bill Williams; an inspiration to the sporting world, through many struggles with substance abuse, found peace and diligence within himself with Religion, always shows the utmost respect whenever he is in a sporting arena. He is an extremely talented sportsman by playing for the all blacks as a creative entity as well as being a professional boxer.

WHO INSPIRES YOU AT CFJ?

The Masters inspire me! I hope when I am 50 years plus I’m still rocking wall balls & cleans!

TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU.

I use to be a dancer – Danced for 15 years (Ballet, modern, tap dancing & hip hop) I stopped when I started studying in Pretoria because I couldn’t find the right dance school. So when I started CF my squats were funny looking to say the least because of the habit of standing in plié and over extending my back which led to my back injury. But all is good now thanks to Tamarr’s amazing physiotherapy treatment, Imtiaz’s rehab program and the coaches’ care and attention to me in class knowing that I have an injury.

 


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, RICARDO PLATT!!

    Most common capacities are 5000 litres, 10000 litres,
    and 20000 litres. Most of the time, when the topic is all about wastewater
    and sewage, the image people often get is that of bad
    smells and all that grime. In fact, there would be plenty of surplus water to irrigate
    the garden or sell to other consumers.

    When getting rid of drain clogs, avoid using chemical cleaners.

    While both parents were charged, one of the charges that the boy’s mother is facing is more serious than what
    the boy’s father is facing, according to WUSA-9 on April 3.

    This is especially useful if the person you’re inquiring about has
    a less than common name. If these eight steps seem overwhelming, welcome to
    the club. Once each item on the list of services is defined, select

    Temporary files are also created when you surf the Internet, and these files store information about the Web sites you visit.
    Everything in here is pretty safe ‘ it’s where
    you and those around you see your personality in the same way.
    The process of cleaning huge building requires ample planning and
    patience.

    All they have to do is relish the sight of these men’s six-pack abs and chiseled biceps.

    There are certain packages that include all the costs of accommodation, food,
    drinks, party accessories and sightseeing. The best way to make sure the
    adolescent doesn’t contract sexually transmitted diseases is to abstain from all types of sexual activities.

    Basically, there’s no reason you mustn’t step up the intensity and
    lift weights. Here we are really not discussing fat from greasy junk
    food, but healthy essential fat. Here, an overly stiff racket means many of the energy generated through the ball plus swing will be absorbed from the outer section of your elbow, which could lead to further problems to your
    limb later on.
