LAUREN WILLIAMS

I started CrossFit llantrisant June 2016 (I think). I had virtually no experience with a barbell prior to that. I had only ever done long distance running. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. There are days I walk into the gym now and still have no idea what I’m getting myself into, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Crossfit llantrisant has taken me from a size 10 runner with no strength, through pregnancy to a new mother carrying (a bit too much) baby weight and now I’m fitter and stronger than ever. The place keeps me sane. 

The coaching and support from every single member of staff is top notch. There’s still plenty I can’t do, but that’s ok because there is always an alternative and/or a progression. It’s the type of exercise anyone can do, it’s scalable to what is challenging for you. 

The community they have created is amazing. All members encourage each other, and help each other out. The friends I’ve made in the last 3.5-4 years are much more than gym friends. And not forgetting the social events 🥂summer bbqs, nights out, charity events. I make the most of them all 🤪

I don’t know any other gym that is as friendly, supportive, or as fun.
