How long have you been doing crossfit? How did you get into it?
Were you into sports & fitness prior to crossfit? Tell us a little bit about it.
What is your favorite WOD or movement?
I also love to clean (Pun intended) and do pull ups and handstand push-ups. I enjoy a lot of the gymnastics portion of crossfit.
What is your least favorite WOD or movement?
Who or What motivates you in crossfit?
Describe your greatest achievement so far in crossfit.
My weight has also been my greatest achievement. When I first started crossfit last year July of 2013- I weighed in at 134lbs. Through the whole 30 challenge Coach Matt put me up to, I lost 15lbs and completely changed my ways of eating and maintained a healthier lifestyle. I now weigh 112lbs- and is beyond amazed what a sound diet and crossfit can do for you.
What would your advice be to someone just getting into crossfit?
Stay. Yeah it's hard and you will get your ass handed to you every damn time, but stay anyways. Because you'll realize, you're improving, not only physically- but mentally as well. You'll grow as a person and as an athlete and you have a community that will back you up 110% for whatever goal you venture for.
