How did you learn about CrossFit and how did you end up in our awesome Box? My husband started doing CrossFit and kept encouraging me to try it. Once I took my first class I was hooked. I found Hyper after talking with a friend about wishing there was a closer place, as my old gym was about a half hour away. She introduced me to Yolanda and I have been a Hyper member ever since.
What do you like most about being a FIT member (Hyper CrossFIT Athlete)? I love the challenging workouts and the friends I have made. There is always someone close by pushing you to finish….no matter how tired you are.
What is your proudest moment/biggest accomplishment since you started? When I got my first bar muscle up!
What are you still working on to achieve? Ring muscle ups and handstand walks
Tell us one random fact about yourself that has nothing to do with Crossfit. I love being outside and taking my kids on new adventures…skiing, hiking, paddle boarding. I love watching them achieve new heights.
What is your favorite WOD or benchmark? Honestly, not really a fan of any of the “girls”. If I had to choose it would be the Murph HERO WOD. I enjoy the group atmosphere of doing Murph and the extremely challenging workout.
If you created a WOD, what would it be? Oh I don’t know…probably an EMOM since most who know me know that workouts with built in rest are my favorite 🙂 It would probably have to have deadlifts, box jumps, DB snatches, sit-ups and burpees.
What advice would you offer to someone interested, but intimidated to try CrossFit? Just go once. And then you will go again. Don’t be intimidated by any of the movements or workouts. Everything is scalable and everyone I know works to their own level.
