About me
Played badminton competively from age 11 to 21; representing schools and clubs, and youth teams.
Started Crossfit 2 years later at age 23 in 2012.
Took awhile to understand about Crossfit until the first opens in 2013 that it became a sport and passion.
The Crossfit community and boxes are the main reasons why I love Crossfit.
Trains 4 times a week consisting mainly on metabolic conditioning work.

Do go through strength cycles too and put in extra efforts for gymnastics as it is a weakness.

On Nutrition
Currently not following any diet, but watch the intakes of carb and sugar. Subsitudes sugar for natural sweeteners such as honey.
Ensuring enough greens and no unhealthy overly fried food.
 
Advice
Crossfit has taught me to be patient with myself. 
Initial gains can reach a plateau and can be frustrating. Keep grinding and time will tell. 
End of the day, slow progress is lasting progress.
Thereis no such thing as weakness, everything is work in progress.
