We've just been so busy and excited that The CrossFit Games are coming to Madison and Christmas is right around the corner that November's Member of the Month post is a little late. But better late than never, right? Anyway, November's Member of the Month has been with us since this spring and she is one of our newest board members! Congrats Megan! We're glad that you finally took the plunge to see what CrossFit is all about!
I’m 28 years old and have been working as a Dental Assistant in Madison for the last 8 years. I enjoy reading, photography, family, yoga, animals and the outdoors.
When did you start doing CrossFit?
April 2016. I knew I needed to find a workout that I could be more consistent with, if I wanted to continue to eat cheese curds and drink wine.
What is your favorite movement and/or benchmark workout?
My favorite movements are toes to bar, burpees, and power cleans. I also like core workouts, when they are finished.
What has been your biggest struggle?
I’ve struggled with keeping my flexibility and double unders.
What has been your biggest improvement?
I’ve seen improvements with all my lifting and just overall strength.
What goals are you currently chasing?
My goals would be pull ups with no bands and hand stands with no wall support.
If you could design a workout, what would it be?
If I could design a workout it would start with power cleans or front squats, a WOD involving; burpees, toes to bar, pushups, pull ups and finishing with rowing or running.
What is your favorite outfit to WOD in?
Most likely, you’ll see me in capris and a t-shirt. Whatever is comfortable and easy to move in.
How often do you talk about CrossFit?
I talk about CrossFit as often as I can, but I do think about it daily.
Burpees: Love ‘em or hate ‘em?
Burpees- Love them!
Do you have a favorite story about the Coop?
I don’t have a particular story to share, but I do very much enjoy my time at the PCC. I never regret a workout and always feel so much better with myself afterwards. I love how CrossFit is such an independent workout, but at the same time how awesome it is to be supported by and supporting your other members.
