Let’s find out more about Karo!

Can you tell us a bit more about yourself and what you do?
Born and raised in Perth, my family is from Poland so I consider myself both nationalities. I love life and love to talk and laugh!
I work as a Marketing Coordinator, currently for a Property Development and Real Estate company. I get to think of names for apartment buildings and write about how effervescent the Swan River is and why you want to live near it! One day I will give it up to become an Interior Designer or a full-time renovator or the owner of a hairdressing salon (so that I can have fab hair all the time).☺

Who and what inspires you?
Each and every person at Crossfit Fibre. I know it might sounds supreme-o lame-o but I continually get challenged and inspired by the people in our box. Particularly the girls – you seriously are all amazing and much stronger and fitter than you think!

Can you cook and what are your favourite dishes?
Yes I can and I usually stick to healthy recipes. I love anything with sweet potato in it (because it feels like such a treat!) and I always seem to cook chicken and fish. But when the gloves are off, all I want to cook is pasta, in particular a cherry tomato sauce with extra olive oil on top. Yuuummmm!

How would you describe your ideal day?
Sunshine, shopping, sleep-in, beach, movies, cake, chocolate, lots of laughter, Marco, friends, family, nap, pasta, pancakes, reading, cocktails, session at CFF and obviously more hours in the day!

What has CrossFit done for you?
I joined CrossFit initially to get fit before I turned 30. I had made a resolution for 2014 to be my fittest and healthiest year. And after coming in and talking to Bjorn (and seeing the size of Franco’s muscles), I knew that CrossFit Fibre was the place for me to reach that goal.☺

Most importantly, it has also finally provided consistency in my training and in my diet for the first time in my life and it has allowed me to form friendships with some truly amazing peeps!

What is your favourite WOD?
There will be a lot of people that will disagree with me but I love Burn Factor! I love a good squat session. ☺

Burpees or Chin Ups?
My hands cannot withstand chin-ups, so it’s definitely burpees for me. However, I curse the person that invented burpee-chin-ups!!

What do you like most about CrossFit Fibre?
#Fibrefam. Chit chats with you guys keeps me coming back session after session no matter how tired, or sore or broken I am, when I walk in under that shutter gate everything is forgotten.

If you were to design a WOD for the coach, what would it be?
60min AMRAP
25 KB swings
25 chinups
1.1km run with a wall ball
25 wall balls
15 hand stand push-ups.
