👊What brought you to CrossFit?
👊 My sister coaches CrossFit in Windsor and has been harassing me to start CrossFit for at least four years. I've always been an athletic individual and involved in many organized sports teams from a young age - college fastball, beach volleyball and Women's Provincial Rugby. I've been a Spinning instructor for seven years and always developed my own personal training programming. Last year, I successfully completed Stage 1 Fire Fighting testing, however, was unable to successfully complete Stage 2. I decided to take my training to a new level by starting CrossFit - and maybe attempt the testing again in the Fall (we'll see!).
👊How long have you been doing CrossFit for?
👊 I tried CrossFit for 30 days, about four years ago at another local gym and wasn't really a fan. I found it hard to fit in and didn't like the style. I decided to give CrossFit another go, by trying CFNAC free for 2 weeks this past January. I registered for the 6-week Nutrition Challenge, fell in love with the coaching and community at CFNAC and joined officially 8 weeks after that.
👊What are some of your accomplishments?
👊 Since starting at CFNAC in January, with the help of the coaches, I have surprised myself time and time again. Some of my proudest moments include getting 6 strict handstand push-ups, a 95 clean PR and completing 2 RX workouts in my very first Open. I was also happy to get rope climbs, pull-ups, toe-to-bar, a 110 bench and 105 Clean and Jerk. I am pushed to my limit every week in conditioning class - which is great mental and physical preparation.
👊What do you love most about CFNAC?
👊 Definitely, burpees (LOL!) I really love the community - I have never witnessed such a supportive, inspiratonal and encouraging group of people! It is evident that the owners and staff have an exceptional passion for health and fitness and genuinely care about their members.
👊Describe in one word how CrossFit makes you feel:
👊 Well, if it's the Assault Bike - BARF. If it's CrossFit in general - ACCEPTED!
