Meet Our Members - Mollie Bryant

Mollie discovered CrossFit at the beginning of 2013, and it went from there. Prior to joining CFCBR, she told us "I had trained at a couple of other local CrossFit gyms but found that they weren't the right fit." As a way to make sure she kept up her fitness she purchased some basic equipment and started training from home. She found that is was hard to motivate herself to train, and started to look into CrossFit gyms again. Mollie had heard great reviews about CrossFit Canberra - From friends, and social media. After a rough period in 2017, her friend Laya gave her the push she needed to join, and she hasn't looked back! Mollie told us, "since coming back to a CrossFit, I have regained my s

20 Thoughts We Had During Our First CFCBR Session

We've all been there, on the outside looking in.

But we've all made excuses... "It's too expensive... I won't even like it...I can't get there... I'm not fit enough... I'll join when I can do X amount of weight...It's a cult". We all get to that point where we realise we're not really sure what has been holding us back. Next thing we know

How To Turn Your New Year Resolutions Into Actionable Goals

At the start of each year, each member of the CrossFit Canberra community sets year long goals! Pat and Brendan encourage everyone to make goals that are SMART. Meaning they are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time based. This means that no matter how wild your new years resolutions are, they become powerful and actionable goals. A resolution is a decision that will change your year (if you let it) for the better. But, a decision on its own is pointless. Unless, you start thinking SMART. Step 1. Write down your goals. My favourite part of the new year is reflecting on the past year and writing down my goals for the new year. The act of writing down your goals is powerful. Each
