Congratulations to Brooke Martin who is May’s Hyper CrossFIT Athlete of the Month. It’s not winning the Super Bowl LII or Cardio challenges at our fitness center that keeps Brooke motivated. It’s what she has gained in the form of an extended family, personal fitness results and the many accomplishments that keeps her coming back to the box.
Hometown: Indianapolis, IN
What do you do to pay your bills? School, emergency, and trauma Nurse
How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? I learned about CrossFit through a former member and primarily my father, Darren Martin.
What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFIT Athlete)? I like my 5:30 AM crew, the push to start my day off right, and the results that I have seen and changes I have seen in myself.
What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? My proudest accomplishment is probably being able to get up the rope and not just once but multiple times now. 🙂
Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with CrossFit. I go on a cruise outside the country at least once a year.
What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? One of my favorite WODs is probably the one that we did with all of the presidents recently. It was challenging, but fun!
If you created a WOD and named it after yourself, what would it be? BMart Special – I would include a rope climb, bear crawls, burpees, GHD machine, and snatches…Like a mix of different movements to work the body and maybe even some sprints like a 200 or 400 meter.
What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Exactly what our motto is, “It’s not how you start, it’s how you finish.” You may not be able to do everything and especially not RX, but if you stick with it and really work hard the change will be evident not only in how you look but how you feel.
Any additional comments you would like to share? I love CrossFit and our coaches are the best! They are very intuitive to all of us. They take the time to get to know us and have fun!
