When did you first start Crossfitting?

I️ first started CrossFit in the beginning of 2020! But COVID shut that gym down (like many small businesses)

When did you start training at CFS?

I️ first started training at CFS in August of 2020.

Favorite WOD?

Ooo favorite WOD is probably …. Boat Race. Probably because it was the first WOD I️ RX’d and I️ was pretty proud that I️ pushed through it. 

Least favorite movement?

Least Favorite movement has to be … squat snatches

Tell us about your sport and fitness background?

I️ never really did sports, but I️ was in color guard and drum line in high school. 

How did you first get exposed to crossfit? Take us back to your first WOD… What was it and how did it feel?

I️ first got exposed to CrossFit through my old coworkers (shout out to cicily & sandy). My first WOD was tough but also a learning experience. I️ had never been part of a gym that did the entire workout together. 

What sort of changes have you seen in your body health and fitness since starting CF?

I’ve lost ~25lbs since going CFS and I️ can just say I’m proud of myself because I️ never thought it would be possible. 

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like crossfit that were totally unexpected?

I’ve made a lot of new friendships, new relationships with some amazing people. Spending time with quality people and just having a community that up lifts you and cheers you on is amazing.

Please share with us your favorite Crossfit/ CFS moments.

One of my favorite memories from CrossFit is when Kaitlin and I️ were doing a partner WOD and we were doing assisted pull ups and just so that she’d get one more rep I️ would lift my hips to give her a boost and she stopped and said “STOP THRUSTING ME” and started laughing so hard we just stopped and readjusted to keep going. 

Any advice for people just getting started?

My advice would be just go for it. Everyone at the gym wants to see you succeed.


What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of Crossfit?

Outside of CrossFit I️ like to sleep LOL. Life as an adult
