Interesting fact about yourself?

I blush very easily

What would be a standard day for Michelle McTigue from waking up to going to bed?

7:00I get up at about 7am and spend 20-30 minutes meditating (I do this every day)

08:50 I get Felix to school

09:30 I usually attend crossfit 09:30 Monday, Wednesday, Friday

11:30 Walk Tarn – 1 hour

Attend the studio-pottery (2 times per week)

Chores, gardening, food shop,

Career?

Independent Forensic Examiner

But am now training to be a ceramicist (Potter)

Hobbies?

Crossfit especially Olympic weight lifting, ceramics, pottery, woodcraft, walking my dog.

I want to build my own house in the future

How often do you attend the box?

4 times per week

Favourite movement?

Back squat

Worst movement?

Snatch

Romanian get up? Is that what it’s called? *Turkish get up but close :)

Burpees

Workout Music?

90’s piano dance music especially the FPI project-Risky is my favourite all time dance tune and reminds me of my raving days at Wigan Pier.

Why should people come to CrossFit Chew Valley?

It is a very welcoming place and people are very encouraging. Each class is different – helps prevent boredom

working out together – try harder than when working out on your own

What message would you give someone starting CrossFit that would help them?

No matter what stick to the ¾ classes per week and don’t compare yourself with others. Focus on your own improvements. Get a note book and write your WOD times, weights down so you can look back and see the improvements over time. I couldn’t do a burpee when I started. I can now do burpees and am now working on increasing the amount I can do in one go.

1 coaching tip that has helped you?

Don’t compare yourself with others focus on yourself and your improvements over time.

If you could invite 3 people round for dinner who would they be?

Chris Martin

Jesus

Eckharte Tolle

Quote of the day?

Humility is not thinking less about yourself but thinking about yourself less.

Favourite book? 

The Alchemist Paulo Coelho

Best way you have spent £20 in the last few months?

I bought some Tupperware so I can make healthy packed lunches when I travel up North rather than buying food at the service stations.

 

Thanks Michelle

Yoga is an excellent complementary session to many workouts and exercises, but especially CrossFit for many reasons.

Booking onto classes!

Comment

Booking onto classes!

PLEASE PLEASE ensure you are booked on to every class you are attending! All classes are on the system so there is now NO excuse!
 
We have implemented a 5 hour rule whereby you need to have booked on no later than 5 hours before every class.  If no-one is booked on, we can’t guarantee a coach will be available to take the class. There have been a few incidents whereby people have turned up without booking and hence no coach has been there!
