My son’s main sport is competitive swimming. Although he swims at a reasonable level, he thought that he was lacking power in the water. So he joined CrossFit Auckland’s programme for teenagers. He has been doing CrossFit for two school terms now and the results have been phenomenal. Not only did his fitness levels go up considerably (and he was already a very fit young man), his overall body strength increased after as little as half a term. His friends even noticed a difference and his swim coach started asking what else he was doing beside swimming. But the most noticeable benefits were his new personal best times. After two terms of doing CrossFit only twice a week, he has managed to swim very convincing personal best times in all the events he entered at the most recent competition.
My son’s confidence has grown since being involved with CrossFit Auckland because the coaches are amazing, encouraging and uplifting. I can recommend CrossFit Auckland to any young person, novice or experienced sportsperson, as a sport of its own or to compliment another sport. No excuse for not getting our teenagers involved in sport. Sessions are only 45 minutes long so the ‘no time’ excuse does not add up… My son is proof that CrossFit does work!
