Lisa Scharoun, one of our 10am girls is heading away on Sabbatical to Singapore for the next 6 months (me thinks to escape Canberra’s Winter..) and she posted this to our FB page today
“To the 10am crew – I’m going away for six months to Singapore and was hoping to get into the gym for one last session this week to say “goodbye” however I’ve contracted a nasty throat infection so won’t be in. Just wanted to share with you all a story about my time at Adapt:
Two winters ago, on a particularly cold and depressing Canberra day, I wrote in my journal that I wanted to improve three things in my life: 1. Be more resilient 2. Find community and 3. Make work more meaningful. I had seen Adapt in passing and didn’t really know what it was all about but I had some friends in the US that raved about CrossFit so although I feel I’m not the most coordinated person at the best of times…
“I gave it a go. And I haven’t looked back since! This amazing community has helped me to achieve all of my goals (and so much more) and I feel the healthiest and fittest I have in ages”
I never would’ve thought that I would be lifting significant amounts of weight above my head let alone many reps of it a few years ago! Gaining physical strength and looking after myself has helped me to achieve what I wanted to in my work and to prioritize how to get there and this trip overseas is a result of that!
So I want to say a big ‘Thank you’ especially to Ben & Bec for making this community work and for putting in so many hours to do that – and to all the other coaches who have spent the time to correct my posture and form and generally cheer me on! And to everyone that I’ve trained with over the past two years – it’s been tough, sweaty, super tiring and sometimes downright painful but we got through it together! Although I plan to keep it up overseas, I don’t think I’ll ever find a crew as good as ours! I won’t miss the frosty Canberra mornings but I will miss the 10am crew. I will be back at the end of the year (when it’s warm again) to train with you again!”
