NAME: Gavin Wolff
WHAT DROVE YOU TO JOIN CROSSFIT JOZI ?
I was looking for something different to Virgin Active and saw the sign pointing to the old box at Rebel, so out of curiosity went to have a look and was hooked.
HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN A MEMBER FOR?
It must be around 5 years, as I was one of the first members to join at the old box
WHO INSPIRES YOU?
The new members who come in looking nervous as hell and then finally hang in, join a class and excel. Great to see that enthusiasm and change in them. As well as the coaches who have a lot more patience than me.
WHAT ARE YOU DOING WHEN YOU AREN’T AT THE GYM?
Working for a living, as I need to pay for Crossfit classes!
TELL US ONE INTERESTING THING THAT PEOPLE MIGHT NOT KNOW ABOUT YOU?
I love to spend time flying every weekend. The freedom of being master of your own destiny in the sky cannot be matched and you have no one to blame but yourself if anything goes wrong.
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE CHILDHOOD T.V PROGRAMME?
I am that old that TV was not around when I was a kid 🙂
Will Superman comics suffice?
IF YOU HAD TO HAVE A SUPER POWER WHAT WOULD IT BE AND WHY?
I’d be happy to give up a super power just to do OHS properly 🙂
WHAT WOULD YOUR PERFECT WORKOUT BE?
5 rounds for time
400 metre run ….Followed by 10 deadlift @ 70kg, 7 x pullups, 5 x burpees – 30 seconds rest between rounds

My 60th birthday workout
WHAT MIGHT WE FIND IN YOUR FRIDGE AT HOME?

WHAT IS THE COOLEST THING THAT YOU HAVE ACHIEVED AT CFJ?

Major difference in fitness, flexibility and strength. Never been ill since the day I started
LIST SOME OF YOUR BIG GOALS.
What still eludes me is the dreaded overhead squat and also stringing together muscle ups.
