“Love to laugh at myself or with others, love to train hard.” Meet Tom F

Building a community of fun, friendly and supportive members is important to us at CrossFit Hawthorn East.  We’re not only helping the Camberwell and Hawthorn locals get fitter, faster and stronger – our coaches and community are there to motivate and encourage our members every step of the way. Our gym is filled with friends from all around the Boroondara area to focus on their health and fitness goals.

Every day we workout with inspiring individuals. Each week we share their stories with you. Meet Tom F:

 

NAME: Tom Fraser

AGE: 36

OCCUPATION: General Manager of Real Estate

STARTED TRAINING AT CFHE: 9 months ago 

FAVOURITE MOVEMENT OR WORKOUT: Grace or DT

DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN 10 WORDS OR LESS: Love to laugh at myself or with others, love to train hard.

WHY DID YOU START TRAINING AT CROSSFIT HAWTHORN EAST? I’d moved into the area and had to find somewhere closer to home to train at. Came down and had a great time with the programming so I keep coming back.

WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR? Finally getting a Bar Muscle up.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT CROSSFIT HAWTHORN EAST? Great People – Coaches, AM and PM crews….even the lunch time crew are good.

WHAT IS THE MAIN HEALTH GOAL YOU ARE FOCUSING ON AT THE MOMENT? Consistency – I think the more consistent you can be the more results you get….it’s always a challenge for me.

ANY ADVICE FOR ANYONE JUST STARTING THEIR CROSSFIT JOUNEY? Give it a go, don’t be scared. You’ll be sore for weeks but embrace it. And focus on technique.

TELL US SOMETHING WE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU: I played Wheelchair Basketball for Australia. Never made it to the Paralympics but got close 2 times.

APART FROM CROSSFIT HAWTHORN EAST, WHERE ARE YOUR FAVOURITE HANGOUTS IN THE HAWTHORN, CAMBERWELL OR BOROONDARA AREA?

Black Cat Art Gallery, St Cloud for dinner, Short Black for coffee and their baked eggs, Centenove in Kew for a special occasion – great Italian.
