When did you start Crossfitting?
I like to be challenged id say i like the wods with more cardio because after i get passed wondering if im going to die i feel amazing
Least favorite wod
Anything with burpees or toes to bar.
Least favorite lift
I dont necessarily have a least favorite, over head squats are hard for me because of my shoulder surgery.
Tell us bit about yourself
I am a pediatric nurse. Im married to my high school sweetheart we 3 kids. Growing up i was very athletic i was on varsity cheerleading and varsity softball i had never had trouble with weight until i had my 3rd child. With my first two pregnancies the weight fell off of me by 6 weeks post-partum. After my 3 rd child i got really down because 7 months after delivering i was the biggest id ever been. Finally after throwing away all my pre pregnancy clothes and almost giving up i decided to try crossfit. Everyone had told me that you have to be fit and in shape to do crossfit. I decided to try it anyways because i figured id rather it anighalate me then me stay how i was. I went to one class and yes i wanted to die but i signed up that day.
What were you doing before CrossFit
Nothing other than feeling sorry for myself
What were your thoughts after your first Crossfit workout
That kicked my butt, and strangely i loved it!
What were your goals when joining Crossfit?
Loose weight, get toned and stronger
Have you achieved any of those goals?
Absolutely! Im not afraid of summer clothes anymore and am the strongest that ive ever been
Has Crossfit affected your life outside the gym?
I have more energy everyday. When i started seeing results it motivated me to also eat better.
Any advice for people getting started?
Dont quit! You will want to die sometimes, but when u push yourself the results are complete satisfaction!
Some of your recent accomplishments
My endurance has greatly improved!
Unless there are a ton of reps i can lift with weights now, where before the bar was enough.
I have my confidence back!!
