Amanda:

"I started at CFA in 2017 with hypertension that I had been battling for 10+ years (at the time, I was on 3 different blood pressure medications). I am happy to say that I have been off ALL blood pressure medication since March 2019 and have had a very healthy pregnancy as a result. I owe this to CrossFit. I want to thank Coach Olly for his dedication and passion to his box and the athletes. Having being brand new to CrossFit in 2017 (with very little working out experience aside from running), I am thankful for all he has taught me during my 2+ years at CFA.  He always took the time to ensure I was doing each movement correctly, while also teaching me the reason behind the movements. Every time you walked into the box, you would learn something - whether it was a new movement, what a movement was working on in your body, or a random fact. I am also thankful to have taken his nutrition program. I learned that I can still eat “the good stuff” as long as I was keeping track of what I was putting in my body. When I stuck to the program, I definitely saw results. 


Each and every thing I have learned while being an athlete at CrossFit Assault, I will carry with me throughout the rest of my life. CFA will have a special place in my heart. 


I wish Coach Olly and Coach Svenja and the rest of the CFA Family all the best! :) "
