The team at The Box Community is extremely excited and proud to have Dominique Johnson as our newest TBC Ambassador!
Dominique found Crossfit when she was 23 and since that time she has trained exclusively at Crossfit Athletic in NSW, where she values her coaches, the community and her amazing friends that she now has for life.
In 2015 she was part of the CrossFit Athletic regionals team which, placed 4th and therefore booked her 1st ticket to the games! Dominique was fortunate enough to be part of the team in 2016 where they placed 3rd and she was back at the games for a 2nd consecutive year. Since returning from the games in 2016 she has been training hard with the hopes of returning to the games for a 3rd consecutive year.
If you speak to anyone in the CrossFit community you will only hear positive words about Dominique. She is well liked and respected in the community because for such a gifted athlete she manages to stay so grounded, positive and supportive to all those around her.
So, what’s next for this superstar CrossFit athlete? Her ultimate goal in CrossFit is to reach her full potential (whatever that may be) whilst at the same time keeping her life balanced with fun and friends.
