Meet Melissa Stone

I came to Waterford Warriors in 2018 because I was fed up with the conventional gym routine and wanted a change. Having played team sport all my life, I missed the social element to training and this appeared to be a big side to Waterford Warriors.
Since joining waterford warriors i have achieved my initial goals and have since set some new goals for the future with the help of the coaches at the gym. I feel at Warriors, your goals are always changing which keeps training interesting and helps a lot with motivation.
The I really enjoy most is the atmosphere during classes. I have made some great friends during a short space of time! Everyone is so encouraging whether it is your first rep or last and the music isn’t too bad either at times!!! The coaches really keep an eye and push you when you need it most.
I even started to attempt new movements that I wouldn’t have ever thought of doing before such as gymnastics and Olympic lifting. This added an element of fun to training that I hadn’t experienced previously! As frustrating as it can be failing new movements, the coaches and other members really help you persevere.
I’ve achieved some big milestones in my training and in the competitive side of things I Competed in 2 CrossFit opens at RX level which was definitely a huge achievement for me. I was also thrilled to achieve two big goals that I had set for 2020- 100kg back squat and a bar muscle up!
Occasionally beating Mark Gunning at wods is a big bonus too!

In general I am happy to be stronger and fitter than I was before joining!
