It’s always a pleasure naming our member of the month. We love recognising the hard work, commitment and effort our members put in week in and week out to improve their fitness and be the best versions of themselves they can.
This month its our absolute pleasure to name Robyn Wallace Williams as our member of the month for September. Robyn, or Rob or Dobby as he is affectionately known, is an absolute hero. Super consistent, hard working and absolutely awesome to coach Rob is pretty much what a coach would request in a dream member.
Rob trains regularly, pushes his boundaries, is keen to learn, is hungry for self improvement and his banter is always on point. Combined with a great attitude towards training and a completely understandable affection for Dwayne Johnson what more could you want from an athlete.
Rob stepped his game up recently absolutely destroying our in-house Tribal Trials and earning the first officially announced spot on our Tribal UK 2020 Team.
We asked Rob:
What bought you to Saxon CrossFit?
I was really stagnating at the gym, headphones on, doing the same thing week in and week out. Then Abi suggested we give Saxon a try and it was a total game changer… we’ve been bickering during Pair WODs ever since. What’s the biggest change Saxon CrossFit has had on your life? Probably the way an hour class can completely change my mindset. If I’ve had a bad day or feeling stressed I know when I show up to the box, with the coaches and community all on point, and after burying myself in a workout, all that negativity is totally gone.
What’s your favourite thing about Saxon?
Well it’s definitely NOT Coach Sam flossing that’s for sure! Seriously though there is so much to admire about Saxon, from the always excellent coaching, to the awesome box and community. That all combines to consistently push me further and motivates me to improve upon certain movements or hitting that once unattainable PB.
What’s your ideal workout?
It’s got to be some heavy squats to start and then a WOD with some gymnastic moves thrown in.
Describe Saxon CrossFit in 3 words:
Motivating, phenomenal, compulsive.
Tell us something about you that the other members won’t know?
For what is predominately a desk based job I tend to get roped into some random situations for work. As a case in point, I’ve actually been used as a hand model on serval occasions filming for a range of water filters which are apparently sold all over the world.
