My name is Hamish, I’m from Ashley- just out of Rangiora.
I started coming here about 12 months ago. I’ve had a wee break in that time, but I just enjoy coming along here. I’ve never been a gym person before but I’ve really got into it- really enjoying it.
CFWM: That’s great! Who or what do you look forward to most when you come to CrossFit Waimakariri?
H: I enjoy the variety of the work outs and I like the good vibe around the gym, everyone is really encouraging.
CFWM: What is your best PR or Crossfit moment?
H: I’d say first starting to nail out a few toes- to-bar recently which was a pretty hard thing for me to start doing. And that came form increasing my flexibility and mobility, and that’s probably where a lot of the movements come from.
CFWM: What do you think of the new gym?!
H: I love it! It’s awesome. There’s so much room and it’s really well set up. It’s cool.
CFWM: What is your favorite childhood memory?
H: Favorite childhood memory is spending time playing outside in the summer. You know, you think back to your childhood and it seems like it was always summer and you were always outside at the beach or doing stuff outside.
CFWM: What is the best live show you’ve ever been to?
H: Well I’ve been to quite a few live shows in various places around the world, but for me probably the first one I went to was U2 Joshua Tree Tour back when I was probably about 14 or 15 in Wellington and that was pretty cool.
CFWM: That would have been an awesome one to see. My goodness. On average, how many times a week do you hurt yourself trying to dance in the shower?
H: Pffff. Ha! How many times a day, I mean– I would say–yeah, would have to be 1-2 times.
CFWM: Ha! 1-2 times easily! Heres a fun word association game, so tell me the first thing that pops in your head when I say: Speights-
H: I see!
H: Good food.
CFWM: Nice. Rugby-
H: Is too short!
CFWM: Is there anything you’d like to add that you haven’t already shared?
H: Look, I just encourage anyone to come along here- it’s a really cool, really cool gym to be a part of- Crossfit Waimak.
