by Yard Athletics – March 3rd, 2021
WE’RE BACK. The best question and answer series on the internet… accept literally zero substitutes. Forget about that other, less good Q&A from some “famous fashion magazine” that asks far too many questions and comes off sterile and inauthentic…
No we’re not jealous.
Today we welcome Christina and Talia, two regulars at Yard Athletics for the last few years who can truly lay claim to being #YARDHARD (Christina currently working out with a broken wrist…)

Christina: Vancouver BC.
2. First experience with Yard Athletics?
Christina: It was with @ Nicolakong in 2019…I don’t know why the assault bike made me physically sick just looking at it. However, after that day my alter ego Olga was risen.
