Debra is one of our HV ME Personal Training clients and an absolute superstar. Currently having a whale of a time in Tokyo, Debra has CrossFit in her blood, with one daughter an experienced coach, and another training at a gym over the hill in Porirua. We caught up with Debra to hear her HV ME story.
What brought you to CrossFit Hutt Valley in the first place?
My daughter gave me 2 free PT sessions for Christmas. She’s a CrossFit Coach and told me CFHV would be the best place for me as they would take great care of me.
What was your first impression? How has that changed?
Scary, and I didn’t want to go, so I delayed making the first appointment until late February. How has that changed? It took around 6 weeks before I stopped trying to make up excuses not to attend my personal training sessions.
What was your first “eureka moment”?
My first Eureka moment came when I could lift my super king mattress on my own. I’d never been able to do this without help, so it was a major sign of my success. Also, the thoughts in my head about trying not to attend my PT sessions ended, and I don’t even give it a second thought about not attending now. I can’t wait to get there and see what my PT has planned for me, it’s exciting! I also am surprised by what my family and friends have said, I even walk with a spring in my step now!
What are you working on now?
Increasing my strength and over all fitness. My long term goal in 2019 is to trek to Base Camp Everest.
What’s your favourite CFHV memory?
Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that I could squat and complete sit-ups. The encouragement I receive every time I attend is overwhelming. Not only do I have a PT, I also gained a brother & friend. Thanks Paul
