HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT CROSSFIT BELFAST AND WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE / WOD?
I first heard about CrossFit Belfast through social media. My first experience with CFB was something special. I was next door getting some fake grass and I drove past and saw 6 or 7 absolute maniacs in the middle of what seemed to be a devastating workout. I slammed on the brakes, reversed and went in to watch the last 10mins of the WOD. It was Niall and Jenna and some of the other competition athletes. No one could breathe, nobody could speak and they still had ten minute of a 40 minute workout to go. It was insane. From that second I was hooked.
