week 8 | Anthea

“Can you look at me please?” – “No, I can’t!” she said while laughing.
But of course she could. And she did, with her beaming smile! 🙂

This is Anthea.
She’s a fellow crossfitter but she also plays rugby and does ballet. The most unusual but amazing combination in my opinion.
Anthea is probably one of the friendliest people I’ve ever met, I’ve never seen her in a bad mood. She’s usually laughing, joking or dancing when I meet her at the box. She’s also a little crazy – and I mean that in the most positive way possible. And she’s super strong!
This photo was taken today after her lifting session and just before my friday night WOD. Can you tell she just lifted some heavy weights?! 😉

Before I even started this project I asked some of my crossfit friends if they would like to participate by being my ‘model’ at some point and Anthea was one of the first girls to offer her help. I’m very grateful to have my lovely Crossfit Connect family. I don’t want this project to revolve around crossfitters only but over the next 10 months there will definitely more of the friendly faces, I hang/work out with, featured on this blog.
