Athlete Spotlight: Paige Bradey

This week we get to meet one of the original Instinct Fitness members. She was there back in the bootcamp days 3 years ago and has been with us ever since, developing into one of the top female CrossFitters in New Zealand!

She has one of the biggest engines (translation: Crazy Level of Fitness), the fastest double unders you’ll ever see and is also one of the hardest working people to ever walk into the gym. She says she doesn’t have any party tricks but we have heard she has some sweet moves on the dancefloor!
