But the CrossFit workout has prepared us to not just perform in a single heat race, but on multiple races with the same intensity in performance.' Heber takes pride in the land training and CrossFit workout the team underwent to prepare for their first international competition.
It was an eye opener for the team for it took their competency to the international level 'Marami pang bigas na sasaingin at kainin. I envision the team to train more and learn more. We (Bruins) all need to have a learner's attitude no matter what we achieve, and I think being involved in the CrossFit classes taught our paddlers this valuable character.' Heber added.
CrossFit inspires its athletes to learn and play new sport. And with the community excelling in different tilts, the fitness they earned inside the box is the ace they hold in any sport they join.
