This week’s  Crossfit London Member of the Week goes to:

Iringo Demeter.

Iringo is a relatively new joiner who has discovered a love/hate relationship with CrossFit. I’ve had numerous conversations with Iringo during her lunchtime sessions and her evolution is heart warming to say the least. Iringo started from zero and when I say zero, I mean zero! Going from no exercise to speak of to high intensity CrossFit workouts is daunting to say the least. However, we always scaled workouts and intensity to her level and Iringo instantly fell in love with that post workout feeling. An enduring memory of mine from a few weeks back was when she exclaimed after a workout: “THAT WAS TERRIBLE BUT IT WAS FU£!&*~ AMAZING!!”. Iringo’s lifting, movement, and base conditioning have improved exponentially over the past few months and although we have only started this journey, I’m excited to see where it leads.
Well done Iringo!

Dominic Yau.

Dom is all about the technical side of CrossFit. I don’t think he’d mind me saying that he’s a bit of a geek in this respect. He always has informed questions and comments to make in my classes that helps other athletes learn. Currently, Dom is battling a knee injury preventing him from squatting below parallel. This doesn’t stop him from training around the injury and diligently working on his rehab. You’ll either find him in classes or in Open gym, working hard, learning and rehabbing!
Well done Dom!

This week’s  Crossfit London Member of the Week goes to:

Ken Haynes.

Ken is one of those annoying people that gets up incredibly early and gets a ton of work done. He’s a regular in my Monday morning 6:30AM MetCons and runs around with abandon. He’s really upped his training in the last year and it’s showing. He moves better, faster, and is shifting more tin! The guy is ripped to shreds too so that is always something to aspire to.
Well done Ken!

Penelope Fevola

It was a milestone week for Penny who got her first pull-up! I vividly remember having Penny in one of my very first classes in Gales Gardens. She spent the whole WOD cursing and blinding with her mate Katie! It was a funny moment but it shows how far she has come in a a year. Penny is a diligent and consistent athlete, taking on cues and hungry to learn. Penny also forms part of my Wednesday Gales Gardens crew and MetCon Sweaturday. Lastly, we just found out that we’re neighbours!
Well done Penny!

Chirag Dureja

Chirag was just a regular dude who had never done any sort of competitive sport before going CFL. To say that CrossFit is challenging when you have no athletic background is an understatement. However, the drive and determination this guy has shown is perhaps unparalleled. When Chirag first joined, he would go home and practice double-unders and spend time perfecting his squat in the mirror. It’s been an absolute pleasure to coach Chirag who has been so eager listen and learn. Not only that, he’s a humble and funny guy! I know that everyone who forms part of the morning crew will be thrilled to see him win this week.
Well done Chirag!

Bryan

Bryan, aka Gandalf the White, Gandalf the Grey, or ‘Murica is the bane of Danny Steadman’s CrossFit career. Every Monday these two pit it out and invariably it’s the White Wizard who comes out on top. His squat is a sight to behold and it’s no surprise he can wall-ball for days! Bryan is also a very unassuming athlete, usually wearing baggy clothes with an inside out hoody. Most newbies thinking they’re going to beat him usually end up licking their wounds. Bryan is also a big part of the community, befriending many members and coaches through his love and knowledge of video games, fantasy, beer drinking, movies, and country music.
Well done Gandalf!

Jo Kok

It’s a travesty that Jo hasn’t been named MOTW yet! The word that best describes Jo is work. WORK WORK WORK. This guy doesn’t stop working and the results have been unsurprising. He outlifts most guys double his size, he butterfly pull-ups like a ninja, and knows how to go to that dark place. There’s a rumour going around that he psyched out a poor suspecting soul in his heat during The Open. It went something like this:
Jo Kok: Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn’t see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING!
Well done Jo!

Jamie Brunsdon

Jamie is at the heart of everything at both CFL  in E2 and SE11 in Vauxhall and as a result is Easter’s MOTW! Jamie spends an equal amount of time at both gyms and even decided to do The Open at SE11 despite CFL being her “home” gym. Not only did she decide to do it but she only went and won the whole thing! Jamie has only been doing CrossFit a little over a year but she has made huge gains in such a short period of time. To say that Jamie is “enthusiastic” would be an understatement. You could even say she’s hammered drunk on the CrossFit Kool Aid!
Well done Jamie!
