"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity." JFK

I have experience in competing in endurance events, from 5km runs to twice doing the New Zealand Ironman. In more recent years I have taken up CrossFit.
I have first hand seen the holistic benefits of taking up such sports and challenges and have a huge passion in helping others of any ability to experience these same benefits.
