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!
How often do you train?
I train 5 days per week, and twice per day. Before and after work. On the two days that I don't train, I do active recovery.
Do you have a favourite song or quotes that you train to?
I listen to my body and this is my quote I keep repeating to myself like a mantra: “Take your time to learn everything. Technique is so 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.”
