Reggie Fasa is targeting a debut at the CrossFit Games, by qualifying through Strength In Depth in London next week. The key to his success is a broad foundation in a range of movements and emotional regulation.

“Managing the emotions during the event is important. But you can’t train it, you can’t tell someone this is how you feel. The only way you can train it is by going through it, and putting yourself in that position,” said the 27-year-old Fasa.

Fasa is a former rugby player. He played for Newcastle Falcons in the English Premiership, so is used to crowds and high pressure matches. But he says there is a difference between sharing the burden with a team and only being accountable to himself in CrossFit.
