CrossFit Athlete Camille Leblanc-Bazinet Talks With TheAthleticBuild.com

 Tell us how you got started in CrossFit.

I did gymnastic since I was 2 and 1/2 and started competing at 5… I ripped my hips at 16 and was looking for a new challenge… did every sport(soccer, volleyball, ski, running, flag-football, rugby…) and at a rugby party I met a guy who was a owner of a cross fit gym and he challenge me to try a session… that same day I payed for a year.

What is your favorite thing about CrossFit VS traditional training?

Obviously the community… but more than that it kept my family together at point in our life that we all started to go our separate way… both of my sister and my brother owns a gym together and my parents are 2 of their best clients… and the best it done for me is that I see my parents healthier than ever… it seems like they both loss 10 year and I couldn’t more proud to see that.. Traditional training just don’t bring you magic things like that lol.

Not a lot of things embarrass me… I embrace  the cheesy part of myself… hahahaha I guess I like song that you don’t have to think once in a while… Rhianna, Katy Perry etc.

 What is the biggest misconception about CrossFit?

That it is going to injured you… It is base on natural movement.. cross fit is like rehab for people who stopped moving for years… it is only going to extend your ability to keep an independent health life.
