Great things never came from comfort zones.
It has been a while since we spotlighted a member and there’s no better candidate then to the person who threw down the most talked about belated of belated Christmas parties. This amazingly generous and beautiful person was kind enough to give us some of her time away from her busy schedule of baking competition Paleo cookies and teaching Coach Dan the importance of bench pressing to fill out his tank tops to asking her some hard hitting CF25 questions.
Meet our Jemma…..
When did you start CrossFit?
October 2013, minus a brief hiatus in 2014 because of a workplace back injury.
How do you explain crossfit to you friends?
It’s cardio, weightlifting and gymnastics and you’ll never get bored.
The only other thing I say is thank gosh I work in a hospital with access to wheelchairs and hand rails post leg day.
What do you do for work?
I’m a Midwife, specialising in ultrasound in high risk pregnancies
What’s is your favourite/less favourite movement and work out?
Favourite: Burpees and baking for competitions.
Least favourite: Pull ups and sit ups…….I don’t have any core muscles, just elective ones.
Who’s your favourite/best looking coach?
Pete…….just kidding, I mean Daniel of course!
Do you have any nicknames?
Just your standard….Jem
Favourite cheat meal?
Top Paddock’s hotcake (to die for!)
What might we find in your fridge at home?
Fridge is pretty well stocked with good food at the moment, fresh veggies, fruits, meat and but there is always something in there that I have baked recently. At the moment it’s homemade paleo cacao cake, if Daniel hasn’t eaten it all before I get home from work.
Guilty TV pleasure?
The Mindy Project……I’m pretty sure I’m mindy
What was your favorite childhood T.V Program?
One super power?
To have a photographic memory…..then I might not have so many awkward moments with parents of babies I can’t remember delivering (I’m so bad)
How did you come to be the head of the social committee?
I had nothing to do with it! I just rocked up one day and heard I got nominated! Haha I’m more than happy to plan some fun times for our box. Easter egg hunt for easter anyone?
