NAME: Walter Dell’Erba
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A JOB? I work for Bosch, Siemens & Gaggenau home appliances focusing on kitchen manufacturers and importers.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN TRAINING AT CFJ? Since August 2014
WHAT ENCOURAGED YOU TO JOIN US WHEN YOU DID? Had a chat to Little Nic T at a kiddies birthday party and told me about the best CrossFit facility in the area and I should come to a “bring a buddy class”
ARE THERE ANY MEMORIES FROM YOUR FIRST DAYS THAT YOU’D LIKE TO SHARE? Bring a buddy was a COLD Saturday Morning and we trained outside and I thought, this is going to hurt!!! It did hurt for a few days – but I was hooked and addicted.
WHAT IS THE COOLEST THING THAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED AT CFJ? Winning the recent Lifestyle Challenge. Sticking to the training and not giving up or getting bored.
WHAT CHANGES IN YOUR HEALTH HAVE YOU NOTICED SINCE STARTING CrossFit? Started jump up with 38% body fat and dropped to 24% in one of the lifestyle challenges. Stronger than ever, healthier, mobility, healthy lifestyle, more concentration – I could go on forever!!
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’RE NOT BUSY GETTING FITTER AT CFJ? Spending time with my family, movies, I enjoy cooking, my 5 year old son Levi keeps me busy.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS SINCE JOINING CFJ? Winning a Lifestyle Challenge at the start of 2016. For me this is the longest I’ve ever been in a fitness regime, I normally get bored and drop out – so that is a big achievement for me.
LIST SOME OF YOUR CFJ BUCKET LIST ITEMS. A 6 pack would be nice, but that’s a long term goal ha ha. To do all workouts RX’ed
WHERE IS YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE TO EAT OUT IN JOZI? At the moment I’m loving the “Classic Indian” in Key West Bedfordview – I love curries etc.. RocoMamas and The Wolfpack are also great!
IF YOU COULD INVITE 3 FAMOUS PEOPLE TO DINNER, WHO WOULD THEY BE? Dr Wayne Dyer; Alessandra Ambrosio ; Lee Evans
WHO INSPIRES YOU AT CFJ AND IS THERE ANYONE ELSE YOU’D LIKE TO GIVE A SHOUT OUT TO? My 6 am class – what a great class!!
