Jonny Melo de Souza Santos
CrossFitting since: May 2016
Favourite WOD: “MURPH”
What I hate to see on the board: Running.
Favourite lift: Snatch.
Biggest transformation I’ve experienced as a result of being with CrossFit Auckland: Doing actual squats in the squat rack & not bicep curls. It’s true, I never squatted before Crossfit, did only machines.
Most memorable CrossFit moment: At Metcon Madness 2018 when the ONE goal was not to put the bar down or you get 50 bar hops and Grumpy Chris dropped the bar.
Before CrossFit: I did regular gym.
Life outside CrossFit: BBQs and ginger beer.
Favourite meal: Pasta.
Favourite movie: Superman.
Favourite band or artist: Eminem
