Mia van der Westhuizen


I’ve always been a “busybody.” I was on the track team my whole life. I made various provincial teams for netball. And then, finally, after school, I got introduced to CrossFit. At first, I thought it was totally out of my comfort zone, but once you try it, you are hooked.

I’m originally from Johannesburg, South Africa. I’m traveling around the United States for a little while before entering the corporate world. I studied Industrial Psychology for the past four years, and I grew to love the different behaviors, personalities, and abilities of all people.

My degree included a few modules on marketing, management, and administrative responsibilities in various business sectors. I believe that all those topics covered assist me in doing CFW’s social media posts, stocking, ordering, and organizing products/apparel. And just helping out with some of the nitty-gritty tasks.

When I’m not working on CFW posts or working out, I work as an au pair for a lovely family in Wilmette! They instantly made me feel like a member of their family. Which is exactly how I feel about the CFW community – included in a vibrant and fun community. I also read, watch series, go out with friends, travel, shop, and do a few extra short courses (just to keep up to date).
