I got fully sold on it upon my return home from university , we got our level 1’s and started off training people in our backyard. I am proud to share the methodology that is CrossFit to our nation and i believe it can benefit our people greatly.”

Forever a “student of the game”, Amanda is always looking to strengthen and question her understanding of human movement, health and nutrition.
