My life has always revolved around fitness, I started training gymnastics when I was 10 years old. By the time I was 15 I started going to the gym and did more strength training . After my son was born I decided to join the Women’s Kavallieri rugby team part of the same club my husband used to play for at the time.
I played rugby for 4 years and through these years was selected to play for the Malta’s National Team.
At the age of 32 my husband together with our friend opened THE PIT where our love for crossfit and functional fitness started. It has now been 8 years since I started and through these years I have competed in a number of international competitions including Strength in Depth London , French Throwdown and The Italian Throwdown which are amongst the biggest competitions in Europe . I’ve achieved podium finishes in most of them. I’ve also competed in team competitions with my husband and our team mate Dennis Thornton.
Competition is what keeps me going, I want to get better, fitter and stronger for my next competition that is my mindset. Everyday is a new challenge, you are never good enough there is always much to improve. However sports in my life helped me build a lot of self confidence too. Sometime it does get difficult to manage and find time for work, training, family and friends but I believe as long as you manage your time the best way you can it will work out. I cannot imagine my life without sports, that is what keeps me going.
