"From just five minutes in I was loving it, and do you know what it was? It was the community aspect."
"Throughout the first workout everyone was egging me on and I said to myself 'Yo I like this, give me some more!'"
"I feel so much fitter, and when you're on stage, you really need to be fit."
"I'm a man who can definitely slip into a dark place."
Why do you enjoy CrossFit so much, what makes you keep on coming back?
It’s definitely done a lot for my mental state, as I went through a big breakup (which is what my whole new album is about). I'm a man who can definitely slip into a dark place. But with CrossFit at WIT I’m able to go into a class with everyone and and feel like we’re in it together. We can all get on with life together. You can all laugh together. It’s just sick, and it’s feel good. I'm actually really getting into all the documentaries on Netflix as well and following the sport. I watched The Fittest in Dubai, these people are stupidly strong, man. It's mad! I find myself watching them all and getting so inspired. As soon as I watched the Fittest in Dubai I went straight on a bike ride and rode 20 miles!
What’s your favourite CrossFit movement?
I like snatching. When I first did that, I didn't really have a clue how to do it but when you go up in weight it feels amazing. I'm not lifting anything that heavy yet but when you add extra weight and hit the lift, what a feeling that is! I also love a little handstand push up too! I'm also to get a handstand without having a wall there but it's super hard!
