What do you enjoy most about being a member of CrossFit Middle Village? 

At CFMV, I enjoy being with the community and the coaches. Julia and Chris have been awesome at guiding and leading CFMV to a great place to come bang some weights, do some cardio, socialize a little and relieve some stress!

How/when did you get involved in CrossFit?

About 3 years. I wanted to do more functional fitness and I wanted to challenge myself. 

What was your first CrossFit workout? How did you feel afterwards? 

I had taken a 4-6 week CrossFit fundamentals and after that my official CrossFit workout was MURPH! It was rough but it was a great feeling to finish especially for what that workout stands for.
