Interview: Denae Brown – Back From Pregnancy!

After finishing third in the 2012 Australia Regional with a come from behind victory in the final Event, Denae Brown had qualified for the CrossFit Games for the first time ever.

A few months later, however, Brown announced she wouldn’t be competing in the competition, revealing she was pregnant! It turns out Brown was actually three weeks pregnant while competing at the Regional in what can only be described as a case of ‘bad timing’.

In 2013, with a new baby in her life, Brown decided to take a year of competing and dedicated more of her time to being a mother.

However, this year SPS Gear athlete Denae Brown has announced she’s making a return to competition, with the hopes of qualifying for the Games for a second time.

“The goal this year is not to get pregnant,” she says.

We caught up Denae Brown recently at SPS Gear Headquarters at CrossFit Brookvale to find out more about life after pregnancy and her hopes for the 2014 CrossFit season.

In the above interview Brown talks about many things including her new training regime, juggling motherhood and CrossFit, her diet and who she things will win the 2014 CrossFit Games.
