Take a minute to get inspired by this awesome testimonial of one of our dedicated members, Rienzo Colpo!
 
“I want to talk about CrossFit. You may know how committed I am to personal transformation. For the past 8 years I’ve been working on who I am and, with others, who they are being in their lives. At the end of last year I decided to commit to a BIG goal to begin a transformation of my body, which I have been unhappy with for a loooooong time.
 
So I committed to myself to do a paricular triathlon mid-2017. My son Dan is a CrossFit coach at CrossFit Pretoria and he suggested that I take up crossfit to balance the other training that I was doing, and build muscle strength. Great plan. So in Feb I started with a basic 3 day per week programme. I kept my head down, did what I could and hoped like hell that one day I would be able to do pull ups and handstand pushups and all that stuff. The thing is that this sport is NOT a sport for elite athletes. It’s a sport for regular muppets like me; looking to enhance lifestyle and build wellbeing. I did my 3 sessions a week, missed many because of work commitments, but sustained the momentum.
 
Then Dan and Chad gave me the greatest gift. A 6 week challenge to eat clean and cut the crap out of my diet. I was sceptical and WAAAY out of my comfort zone. I completed the challenge. Wow! 7 months in and I truly have turned my lifestyle around.
 
I have endless energy, my skin is clear, I am strong, focused, productive and can now keep up with my 7yr old. I run 10km at the drop of a hat and all my cycling times hve improved. I don’t eat or drink the trash that I used to (don’t miss it for 1 sec). I feel 15 years younger. I’ve also lost 14kgs, dropped 3 sizes in my clothes and shed nearly 10% in body fat. All thanks to Dan, Chad, Armin, CrossFit Pretoria and 3 one hour sessions a week; tailor-made to my abilities.” #GreatLife #NeverLookinBack #StillCantDoAPullup #RoutineIsTheEnemy #DidFranToday
