A small Q&A session with 500 Club member Annastiina.

Her workout: La Fortuna.

1. Is CrossFit a cult?

Yes it is!

2. Favorite movement?

Double unders.

3. Least favorite movement?

Double unders again and handstand push-ups. I like them, but I cant do them! And boxjumps! I hate those boxes!

4. Hardest workout you have done?

Combination of running and lifting is a murder for me! And I remember one Open workout with thrusters and bar over burpees (Open 14.5) it was also hard. And “Eva”, and “Helen”  and  so on…

5. What do you like about CFCH?

It is full of different people sharing the same passion. Big personalities without big ego.
And of course you Ben. For example , I have had some injuries and you always got some ideas how to scale or what to do!

6. If you could be trapped on a desert island with only one cult member, who would it be and why?

I would take Pia ,because there would not be a silent moment on the island!

7. Was it love at first taste with CrossFit/CFCH?

To CrossFit, yes and no! In the beginning everything was difficult! I had to scale everything so much!
For some reason I did not stop and still everything is difficult, but maybe that is the reason I do CrossFit! To CFCH it was love at first taste!

8. Any other thoughts?

I want to thank Ben and Hanna and the other cult members , who have supported me last two months with their encouraging words. CFCH has been a big help for me after I had a diagnosis of skin cancer on April. When you are doing your WOD, you are more alive than ever!
