How long have you been doing CrossFit? 2 years. I started in Get fit and then went to into Crossfit.
What do you enjoy about CrossFit and being a member at CrossFit KMC? First of all it is close to my work, KMC. I always feel really guilty when I walk past the crossfit box to my car and and haven’t done the WOD that day… so it is a really good incentive to go. I like the encouragement that I get from the coaches and other athletes. Everybody works hard and pushes you to keep going even when you feel like you cannot go on. I also have met a lot of new people in my community.
What’s your favorite exercise/movement in CrossFit? Favorites are Sit ups and Tire flips… least favorite Burpees or songs that you have to do burpees to!!!
What is one CrossFit/fitness related goal you are working to achieve? I would like to be able to RX ANYTHING!! I always have to scale on weights and pull ups. Pull ups are a huge goal for me.
What is your favorite food? I like pretty much everything. That’s why I go to Crossfit!
Favorite sports team? I am an Illini fan. I always have been-even when they are not doing well
Where is one place you would like to visit? Turks and Caicos. Any place with beautiful beaches.
