OCTOBER MEMBER SPOTLIGHT – GET TO KNOW LANE PEDERSON!

Name: Lane Pederson

Hometown: Bloomington, IL

Occupation:  Social Media & Shipping Manager for a manufacturing company

How Long Have Been Doing CrossFit?: Almost 8 months now

What do you enjoy about CrossFit and being a member at KMC?: CrossFit KMC has changed my life and given me back my confidence. When I started the GetFit program back in February, I was 120 lbs overweight, hadn’t worked out in 4 years, and everything felt impossiblebut I kept coming back thanks to the awesome ladies I met in the program. I was really nervous about migrating into the regular CrossFit classes in June, but since then, I’ve lost 50 lbs and have met a lot of new friends that inspire me every time I’m in the box. I love the varied workouts and the fact that every WOD presents a new challenge to overcome. CrossFit KMC prepares me to face stress and obstacles in and out of the box and is helping to make me a better, more productive mother and wife. 

What’s your favorite exercise/movement in CrossFit?: Any barbell activity that goes overhead…especially Thrusters, Press, and Clean & Jerk.

What is one CrossFit/fitness related goal you are working to achieve?: Box Jumps and/or Double UndersI’m “plyometrically challenged” and couldn’t jump rope when I started, so any progress in that department is a win. 

What is your favorite food? Meat, meat, and more meat!

Favorite sports teams? I’m a Chicago fan through and through.

Where is one place you would like to visit?:  Iceland
