As the box is expanding in members so is the Batteraof crew to help you reach your fitness goals! We would like to introduce to you one of our four new Level 1 Assistant Trainers.
For the ones that don’t know me yet, I am Myrthe, recently promoted to back-up babe @ Batteraof (and proud of it!).
Let’s first get some facts straight:
• CrossFit addict since 3 years
• Sports fanatic since… like ever
• Business Controller in my day to day job
• A little high in energy (my nickname is "stuiterbal")
• Love to coach and help people get better, stronger, faster and reach their goals (was already doing that quite some years before I joined Batteraof)
• Really bad at remembering names… so, sorry for that already
So, what about me in general…
I’m working my way up to becoming a master… getting closer and closer at almost 34 years old… omg, don’t want to talk about that.
I live in Maastricht (Malberg) with my cute ass boyfriend Peter (who I am still trying to get into CrossFit) and some animals. Next to my day to day job, I don’t really have a lot of time for any other hobbies than training, because that is what I do on a daily base – not always CrossFit, I also like Thai boxing a lot (been doing that for 15 years almost), Krav Maga and recently started MMA. I really like fighting…
When I have some spare time (in the weekends) I love to see my family… especially play with my sisters kids, they are so cute!
Before I started CrossFit I worked as a functional trainer for some years, really liked the coaching, really missed the challenge… so CrossFit was EXACTLY what I need!! Challenge, competition and a great community! Got my Level 1 a few years ago.
“Only” back-up because as much as I like coaching, it is too much of a burden for me next to my regular job and private life (and I don’t want to mess up my own training either). So this way I get the best of both, I can proceed my own training, but also still get to do some coaching…
My goals for next year are...
Attacking my weaknesses (yes, I do have some)…
Running and just about all my gymnastic movements need to get to the next level!
