What do you enjoy most about being a member of CrossFit Middle Village?
Being able to workout with such great people. My peers and coaches not only push me to be as strong as I can be, but they make sure I am doing it safely!
How/when did you get involved in CrossFit?
My sister has been doing crossfit for years and she finally convinced me to start about a year ago. Thanks Nicole!
What was your first CrossFit workout? How did you feel afterwards?
I can’t say I remember my first workout, but I can say I’d never used a barbell before that day. It was EXHAUSTING but after the workout was done I felt so powerful and knew I had to keep going.
What do you enjoy most about CrossFIt? What is your favorite WOD or Lift?
I love that I get to workout with my friends and that I don’t have to think about programming on my own. My favorite lift has got to be a clean and jerk, I never thought I’d be able to lift 100 pounds over my head but we’re just getting started!
What is your least favorite WOD or Lift?
My least favorite movement has got to be wallwalks, even though I’m improving, they kick my butt every time.
What motivates you? How has CrossFit changed you?
I’m motivated by results. So far I’ve seen changes in my body, I feel stronger, more confident and I feel like I could defend myself if I ever needed to.
What were your goals when you started this journey ?
When I started I wanted to get in shape and replace some body fat with muscle, mission accomplished.
What are your goals for the upcoming year?
I would love to be able to do an unassisted pullup and to be able to bench press 100+lbs.
Do you have any advice for new members?
Keep pushing! It’s going to be hard when you start, but once you get into it it’s SO worth it.
