Success Story: Louise Farrel

Louise Farrel

58 years young and 6 years in to CrossFit

I first heard about CrossFit at book club.  I had just returned to Cape Town and did not want to resume my membership of a local gym and the enthusiasm of the book club member lead me to Cape CrossFit in Hope Street. The industrial feel of the box drew me in together with (at that time) a unique approach to fitness.  This together with the warmth of the coaches in encouraging me to complete the base exercise led me to sign up. Six years on and I am an enthusiastic proponent of Cross Fit. My fitness levels have improved and I have learnt that I can push myself within a supportive environment. Fitness, nutrition and a healthy life style are all promoted at the box by experts in their field with regular challenges that encourage CrossFitters to extend themselves. The coaches and the community at Cape CrossFit keep me coming back for more and hopefully when I reach my next decade I will continue to achieve PBs and enjoy the camaraderie of my fellow CrossFitters and coaches.
