How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started in July of 2012
What made you want to stick with CrossFit?
Seeing results in the mirror and having to buy new clothes is always a plus! Plus I feel better and I’m sure I’m healthier.
What’s your favorite move?
I have a couple: slam balls and back squats
What drives you to become a better athlete?
I see how far I’ve come in just 8 months, I can only imagine How much further I have to go. There are so many things I still want to do and see and being strong and healthy will only help to make them better experiences.
What are you passionate about?
Besides Crossfit, my passion is baking and decorating cakes. There’s something about making people happy with beautiful AND delicious cakes.
What’s are your strengths in CrossFit?
I’d say my strengths are squats and most body weight movements. I’m a competitive person so anything fast paced is for me.
What are your weaknesses?
Pull-ups for sure, I can do a few strict ones but if they’re part of a WOD, I’m done for.
What are some of the goals that you have now obtained?
Short term: I really want to nail Kipping pull-ups. Long term: muscle ups!
