When did you start doing CrossFit?

May, 2013

 Tell us a little bit about yourself?

I’ve been married to my husband, Craig, for 17 years.  I have two amazing kids.  Alec, 15 and Nicolette, 12.  When we are not running around crazy to football and baseball games, or tumbling competitions, we are an outdoors family.  Always enjoy spending time with family and close friends.  I think I am a kind, honest and trustworthy person.  I always enjoy meeting new people, especially at CF!

What was your fitness routine before CrossFit?

Running, Bootcamp and a little weight training.

Favorite WOD?

31 Heroes

Least favorite WOD?

Well, I would not say my least favorite, but definitely my most challenging is any WOD with PULLUPS!

Favorite Lift?

Deadlift

Lease favorite lift?

OHS

How has your view about CrossFit changed since your first WOD at CFB?

Since exercise has always been a part of my daily routine, I thought for sure “Oh I got this . . . !” But WOW!  CFB definitely has changed my view of being fit.  It has kicked my butt and I love the challenge!

What were your goals when joining CrossFit? And have you achieved any of these goals?

To become stronger, and more fit and to learn better nutritional habits.  And YES!

How has CrossFit affected your life outside of the gym?

I live a healthier lifestyle.  I am the most fit and strongest I have ever been in my life.  I have learned better nutritional habits for me and my family.

What advice would you give to a newbie just joining CrossFit Barrington?

As hard as it is to be new, DON’T EVER GIVE UP!  Just keep going!  And definitely don’t ever compare yourself to anyone else.  We’ve all been there before.  Everyone is so motivating and supportive.  Some of my closest friends are the ones I have met at CrossFit!
