Tell us about yourself!
I am a Care Manager for disabled adults and love what I do. I am married to a great man and we have a girl and three boys. We enjoy camping, hiking, hunting, fishing, target practice, and most outdoor activities!
I started CrossFit in October of this year.
What is your favorite movement and/or benchmark workout?
My favorite movement is the clean & jerk.
What has been your biggest struggle?
Flexibility and double unders are two of the hurdles I am trying to clear.
What has been your biggest improvement?
My biggest improvement is the depth of my squats.
What goals are you currently chasing?
I am currently trying to get deeper when snatching and improve my pull-ups.
If you could design a workout, what would it be?
If I designed a workout it would be with partner moves and no burpees.
What is your favorite outfit to WOD in?
Unfortunately my favorite workout pants match the bathroom floor, but I still love them!
How often do you talk about CrossFit?
I don't talk about CrossFit too much because no one seems to get it!
Burpees: Love ‘em or hate ‘em?
Burpees prove I am not flexible. Hate now, but working on it.
Do you have a favorite moment or story about the Coop?
My favorite part so far is the positive energy everyday.
What advice would you give a new PCC member?
My advice would be to be here for yourself; try to improve on your goals not meet someone else’s.
