A long awaited 21-15-9 of cal rowing and burpees was the challenge this evening and it definately caught out our #celticwarriors . Such a simple workout left them on their backs wondering how that workout was so tough. We also got our SWOLE on with some bench press, with some serious tin being lifted (except little Rob ;).
I must say all our #celticwarriors hit the workout with absolute intensity and left nothing in the tank, but big mentions for Chris, mark, Dave, Matty, Will, Rach, Nat and Maria who didn’t stop and seriously flew through. Also Leighton and Mike who continue to work hard and impress. Also a very special mention for Jen who took new member Sue under her wing and both pushed to the brink. Awesome stuff guys!!!!

January member of the month – Katie Doff
Katie embodies everything that we have built @celticcrossfit . Hard work, dedication and community.
She has developed into one of our most promising athletes, who is very coachable and always willing to listen to ensure she maximises her potential.
Katie is also a great example of a member who encompasses the #celticwarrior attitude towards community. She was there at very opportunity to paint, mop, sweep, lift and carry when we were moving, considering most people her age were in bed sleeping on those early Sunday mornings, it was amazing and very much appreciated. Her prize is definately deserved, well done and thank you Katie Doff!!!!!
Katie has kindly taken the time too answer some questions about her journey @celticcrossfit.
