Crossfit Townsville Blog
---- Athlete Spotlight October ----
This month we shine the light on Katie Garay. Katie is one of our 5am Zombies and can found at the conclusion of every class pumping out the extras from 90 days of summer. She is also a familiar face at many of our CrossFit Townsville events and is always willing to lend a helping hand, be it judging at Friday Night Lights or Twins Comp. Enjoy!
Athlete: Katie Garay
Grew up where: I grew up in the lower Blue Mountains, which is an hour west of Sydney.
Occupation: Building Engineer
When and how did you get started with us? I started in October 2014. I had a friend down in Sydney that was always on about CrossFit, so I thought I'd give it a go as well. I googled CrossFit Townsville and there was a new fundamentals block starting the following week, so it worked out perfectly.
Favourite WOD? Probably 12 Days of Christmas. I'm looking forward to having another go at that this year.
Least Favourite WOD? Anything with the assault bike. I don't like that machine.
Who is your favourite superhero? Captain Planet. He’s a hero. He’s gonna take pollution down to zero!
What's the best thing about training with the 5am crew? Everyone is super friendly and I like that it's pretty laid back. Everyone's working hard, but not being over the top serious about it all.
What are some of your other passions or hobbies outside of the CFTSV? To be honest, I'm a bit of a homebody, so if I'm not at CrossFit or work I'm generally at home reading or watching Netflix. Other than that I play soccer and I enjoy going out for coffee. I also love travelling overseas, in particular to Japan.
Please share with us your fondest CrossFit / CFTSV memory: Class Wars last year was lots of fun (even though the 5am crew was completely robbed and unfairly judged) and the Christmas party afterwards really topped off the day.
Thanks Katie for letting us get to know you a little better!
