Martine has been working out basically since she can move, but for a year or two CrossFit has really become her thing. In two years time, Martine has grown from a beginner to a passionate CrossFit athlete and is participating in the larger throwdowns in the Netherlands. Martine feels as if she can do anything and can show who she is by exercising.

Martine has an auto-inflammatory disease, which means she can get sick quickly and have rheumatism. It is because of the strength training at CrossFit that her tendons and muscles become stronger and that she hardly has any problems now. “Exercising really relieves me and luckily I can grow very old with this disease, so I just make sure that I live as healthy as possible.”
