Sammy Wood has been into CrossFit® for many years now and comes from a background of top level gymnastics means she has taken to the sport like a duck to water.
Sammy’s record is nothing short of special with the 2013 CrossFit® Open placing 17th individually and a 4th place team finish with the ever strong CrossFit® Athletic Team at the Regionals. She has gone on to better those impressive results with a 1st place win with CrossFit® Athletic at the Regionals in 2014 and even took 1st place in the first event of the CrossFit® games in 2014, one of her proudest moments!
At 29 years old there is still a lot to see from this hardworking, energetic and bubbly character and True Protein are very excited to have her in the #TeamTP colours, Sammy will, of course, be one to watch in the coming seasons!

“Take your time to learn everything. Technique is sooo important, so don’t go too heavy too fast. Listen to your body when you are sore, and take a day off. CrossFit can become very addictive, and you will make so many gains, but listen to those around you when they give you advice.”
