How long have you been CrossFitting? I originally started about 2 years ago, but I left for a while. I really missed it and came back last November. So I have been consistent with it for a year.
Which class time do you usually attend? I come to the 4:15 or 5:15 on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Friday and then Saturday for Endurance.
How did you find CrossFit? Well, I knew several people who were going to Crossfit from my school, McWhirter Elementary. It took me a while to try it because it was kind of intimidating. It is still kind of intimidating!
What is your athletic background? I was mostly a swimmer and a bike rider. I have taken lots of classes over the years including step aerobics, etc… CrossFit classes are the best out there!
How hasCrossFit changed your life, lifestyle, level of fitness? Well, I can run a mile now without stopping which I could not do before. I think I have learned that I have to make CrossFit a commitment and a priority. I also have a lot of support from my family, although my husband gets a little worried when we pull tires.
What motivates/inspires you? I am inspired every time I come to class by the other participants and what they can do. I am especially inspired by the people who can climb the rope.
What is your proudest (CF) achievement? I finally mastered my box jump (thanks to BJ, Melissa Sanchez, Josh, Crystal, and countless others). It took a lot of strategizing! I am also proud that I can run a mile without stopping.
Name one goal/personal achievement that you would like to achieve through CrossFit. I would like to be able to do a pull-up without a band. I would like to have Rx on the lifts in the workouts.
Hobbies/Interests outside of CrossFit? Reading, sewing, walking my dog, working in the yard, my family.
What is your favorite cheat meal? I love the Whataburger Grilled Chicken Sandwich. It has more calories than you might think.
Any advice for new members? Stick with it! It takes time and can be frustrating, but you will not find better coaches and people to work out with. Everyone is very encouraging, and I always learn something new.
Have you met Pukie? No. I have never met Pukie, but sometimes I am so thirsty that I feel like puking.
