CrossFit LE3 Member Focus: Andy Peel

The next installment of our CrossFit LE3 member focus features Andy Peel. Andy, or Vit C, as he is affectionately known at CrossFit LE3, is a quiet and unassuming chap, with an uncanny resemblance to comedian Karl Pilkington. Andy, who is also a member of Wreake Runners, joined us in November 2014, and since then has continually progressed with his training, and has made significant improvements with his running, knocking 37 minutes (and 10 seconds) off of his half marathon time in the last 18 months, completing the Leicester Half Marathon in 1 hour, 42 minutes and 5 seconds.


Andy is a really likeable chap and it’s a genuine pleasure to have him at the box and to watch his progress.
