Posted on March 4th, 2018 by Crossfit Volentia Coaches

I’ve become spoilt!  

It’s no longer good enough for an instructor to just be polite and professional and 'there if I need anything’. I am used to being asked about my goals, nutrition, areas to work on, mindset hacks and about me basically.  Why? It’s because Volentia coaches actually care and you can’t fake that.
