Rob joined the CFTH family almost exactly two years ago and has been soaring with upward momentum every since. Rob is a quiet force at the box. In class, he puts his head down and grinds out the work each day - proving that when you work hard and consistently, you’ll get results. He got his first muscle-up in December 2018 and then proceeded to complete 24 of them in the same workout! Outside of the box, his Crossfit training proves useful for many of his other athletic endeavors like cycling and triathlon training. Rob switches things up going to early morning and evening classes, so chances are just about everyone has gotten to know him! Here is what CFTH means to him:
“I joined Crossfit Tay Ho not long after arriving to Hanoi in September 2017. Having never done Crossfit before, it was certainly a steep learning curve! However the community at the box makes it the best place I’ve ever been to work out and it’s taught me to push myself more than I thought possible.”
How long have you been doing Crossfit/how long at CFTH?
Favorite movement/WOD and why?
My favourite movements would probably be deadlifts and pull ups so any WOD involving these I’m usually happy with!
Something positive Crossfit has taught you?
Any advice for someone just starting?
If you’re just starting out, I would advise you to be patient with the workouts, as it can take a while for all the movements to become bedded-in, so give yourself time before you look to start increasing those weights and lowering times
How long have you been in Hanoi?
Since September 2017
Favorite thing to do in Hanoi (outside of Crossfit)?
Outside of Crossfit I love going swimming and cycling in Hanoi, from March through to November the weather is perfect for it.
Favorite thing to eat in Hanoi?
My favourite Vietnamese food would have to be Bun Cha. There’s a great little place on To Noc Van that we go to at least twice a week.
