What got you started doing CrossFit?
Realizing the older you get the more you need to be fit. I started to notice more and more that people a little older than me were always talking about all of their dr. appointments and health issues. I don’t want to be that person! It is so much more fun to talk about Crossfit and how many stitches you had! I started out doing boot‑camps but I wanted something a little more challenging, definitely found it in Crossfit.
What are your hobbies outside of the gym?
I love spending time with my sweet husband, Whit and my family especially my seven grandchildren. I also like cooking and photography.
What has changed in your life since you started doing CrossFit?
I am a bad ass now. Don’t mess with weezer!
What was your biggest challenge when you started?
Fear that I would not being able to keep up with everyone else in the class.
What are you hoping to accomplish this year?
30” box jump with no stitches, Strict pull-up and improving my running times
What’s your favorite thing about training at CFU?
The coaching is beyond my greatest expectations, we are so lucky to have such outstanding coaches. I also enjoy the mutual respect everyone has for each other no matter your skill level. I love that the loudest cheering at cfu is for the person finishing last!
Any tips for the newbs?
Listen to the coaches and have fun! Think positive and push through the works outs, you can do it!
