Our athlete of the Month for March is….JOHN CARRARA!!! When Niche first opened, John was often the only man on deck in the early morning sessions. Let’s just say he has done the hard yards listening (and occasionally contributing) to girly conversations between squat sets (his knowledge of clothing labels is now much more advanced….you’re welcome) John has always had a fabulous attitude in the gym and is always there to cheer you on. He also still smiles like a little kid when introduced to new male members….so much footy, fishing and BBQ talk to be done. Well done John. We all think you’re a bit cool.
Why did you start CrossFit?
Started out of curiosity. I was getting bored with the same old gym routine and I hate mirrors. Love the CrossFit culture… I’m hooked!
What is your most memorable moment to date?
Seeing athletes on the Niche Facebook performing Muscle ups
What is your most and least favourite WOD or movement?
With my short legs I have to say Squats. Running sucks.
What tip would you give someone just starting in CrossFit?
Listen to your coach. Compete against yourself not others.
What is one random, non-CrossFit interesting ‘thing’ about yourself?
I have a fear of flying but I love travelling.
