Occupation: Learning & Development Professional
CrossFitting Since: May 2011
First Memorable CrossFit Experience: I was going to zumba classes at a studio that slowly became a crossfit gym. Some my first WODs took place in the corner of that zumba studio as we listened to the zumba dance music coming from the class in session. It was a weird combination, but a good way to make the transition from zumba to crossfit.
Favorite WOD: Cindy – A good ol’ classics that pushes me every time
Favorite Lift: Clean & Jerk
Least Favorite WOD: Anything with handstand push ups because I just don’t quite have those yet
Favorite CrossFit Moment: The feeling of accomplishment every time I complete an extremely challenging WOD or hit a new PR!
Why You Do CrossFit: To build physical fitness and mental toughness, to better myself, and some days to just purely get my mind off of work.
Favorite Cheat Meal: Fried things – fries, tot, jalapeno poppers
CrossFit Secret: Record EVERY WOD. I have used a pen/paper journal in the past, but now use the MyWOD app. This allows me to better track progress and set achievable goals for each lift/WOD.
What Do You Do On Rest Days: Walk 10,000 steps, check out Happy Hours around Seattle, enjoy a glass of wine with friends, travel, and now study for grad school.
What Can’t You Live Without: Unfortunately, my cell phone.
Favorite Vacation Spot: Anywhere warm – Mexico, Arizona, Hawaii, California, etc.
