Sunday 01.04.18 - Member of the Month 1/2: Siobhan Drake-Brockman


Gym Closed today for the Public Holiday

Siobhan was one of the join winners of the 2017 Community Award and it's not hard to figure out why. Always a smiling and happy face and a very supportive attitude towards everyone and everything. She is one of those people who just can't ever remember being in a bad mood ever. A very accomplished athlete before she did CrossFit she has some jaw dropping strength numbers. Just a wonderful person to have around. When, how and why did you get started with us? October 2016 after Cooee CF closed. It’s just an awesome group of people at Claremont CF. The community and group training with like-minded people is the best. There’s nothing like going through pain together, then having a laugh about it afterwards. That sounds really sadistic but it’s true! We all have each other’s backs at CF and in this modern world, that’s a really special thing to have. What would be your dream workout? Anything with deads and doubles. What workout would you want to avoid? I’ve never been a fan of burps. I used to hate them but now I just dislike them, so we’re slowly moving forwards! Favourite Crossfit Athlete? Admire many, but probably Mattie Fraser for the leaps and bounds he’s made at that level to his weaknesses and maintained his lead. It’s super impressive and have so much respect for how much hard work he must have put in! Whats the best thing you own that cost under $100? My border collie’s dog lead cos walking him every day and seeing him happy makes me happy. Biggest fashion mistake you’ve ever made? I shudder if I see old pics of myself as a teenager when I was trying to grow my fringe out and I used to pull it back with a bobby pin, then puff it up! Favourite quote? “I have found that if you love life, life will love you back” – Arthur Rubinstein. Whats Your fav 90s jam? Gonna Make You Sweat – C+C Music Factory Last thing you watched on TV? Safe Harbour - SBS Funniest thing that happened to you recently? I unknowingly sent porn to everyone at work after I was hacked! Was funny, but could have been disastrous! Have given everyone 6 months’ worth of porn jokes at work! Most used emoji? Crying laughing emoji. Gets used several times daily. If you could have one other CrossFit Claremont members body part, what would it be? Cyn’s heart
