Meet Matjila!! We asked her some questions…
- What drove you to start CrossFit?
I needed to get moving because it was difficult to play with my kids.
- How long have you been with CrossFit Pretoria?
1 year and 4 months.
- Who inspires you?
All my coaches that are always there to motivate us and my fellow Fitters that push hard everyday to achieve their fitness goals.
- What are you doing when you are not at CrossFit?
Travelling and meeting people from different backgrounds which is my biggest passion.
- Interesting fact about you that people don’t know?
I come from a big family. I have 6 siblings of which 3 are members of CrossFit Pretoria.
- What was your favourite childhood program?
We never had a TV growing up. All we did was play until we couldn’t anymore.
- If you had a super power what would it be and why?
I would have a character for every single season because different people bring out different characters in me.
- What would be your perfect workout?
Any workout where deadlifts are involved. That feeling I get the next day after deadlifts!!!
- What’s your favourite movement?
Any form of squats because I could not even air squat when I started CrossFit due to a sedentary lifestyle and right now even though I’m not there yet, I am better.
- What has been your most memorable moment at CrossFit Pretoria?
The day I could do a box jump. 3 months after I started CrossFit
