Just One More Rep.

At CrossFit Raven we won’t ask you for another rep because we love to see you suffer, we ask because we know you’ve got one more left in you. That extra rep, helps you to be a little bit better, a little bit faster, that little bit stronger. NO ONE improves 20% overnight, you improve by 1% each time.

Alberto’s Journey

Name: Alberto Vivekananda de Freitas

Age: 44

Why did you start CrossFit? What prompted me to embark on my CrossFit journey was a decision I made back in 2016 when I was in Fitzroy, Melbourne. My primary objectives were to embark on a path of shedding excess weight and building muscle mass. Over the years, my commitment to CrossFit has seen its ebbs and flows, intermingled with endeavours like boxing, running and general gym classes.

Why have you stayed at CrossFit Raven? The sense of community that it offers is what has truly anchored me in the CrossFit realm. This sense of belonging spurred me onward, even when I relocated to Geelong. Upon moving, I seamlessly transitioned into CrossFit Raven family. Since 2020, my involvement with CrossFit Raven has become an awe-inspiring expedition. Despite grappling with a daunting wrist injury at work, I refused to be deterred. This unwavering resolve propelled me to conquer challenges such as mastering butterfly pull-ups, standing as a testament to my resolute determination.

Favourite movement: Butterfly pull-ups

Least favourite movement: Burpees, obvs! :-p

Goals you’re working towards: Currently, I have my sights set on achieving proficiency in bar muscle-ups, handstand push-ups and double-unders. Concurrently, I’m dedicated to sustaining the remarkable trajectory of progress and well-being that I’ve established on this incredible journey.
