Why did you want to start CrossFit?
A: “I didn’t know much about CrossFit except my dad used to do it… I thought it sounded pretty cool and I was excited to get fit so I can make the Air Force”
Anakin freely admits that before CrossFit, aside from Cadets he was a very lazy kid who just enjoyed video games! We are so proud of the direction you have your life moving in now.
What do you do outside the gym?
A: “I ride the bike trails at Nerang and work for my dad part-time as a kennel hand, helping to train MWDS (military working dogs) and working dogs.”
Anakin is the KING of flying remote control planes and drones… anything related to the planes this guy has got it covered!
What advice would you give to people who think they aren’t fit enough for CrossFit?
A: “I was never fit before I started but I’m doing fine now. All you got to do is have that perseverance and determination to get where you want and there will be no more ‘I’m not fit enough’”
