Suzanne Smith


How and when did you start doing CrossFit?
I joined on November 1, 2014, along with Sonja and Cara. It was Cara’s idea; Sonja and I were lemmings. Although many people thought we would fall to our death, we survived and have been coming ever since.

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Family? Job? Hobbies?
My husband, Pat, and I have been married for 27 years and have called Barrington our home for the past 22. We have two beautiful daughters, Natalie (23) and Hannah (21). My professional days were spent in sales with CNN, CNBC and Mikasa, but I have been happily retired for awhile. My favorite activities are skiing, boating and sailing, and I love riding on the back of any Harley my hubby is driving.

Favorite WOD and Favorite Movement?
Any WOD that includes a movement I have recently mastered. I’m hoping to call Cindy my favorite soon.

Least favorite WOD and least favorite movement?
La vida loca. Sonja and I missed the group WOD one year and decided to do it together the following Sunday. Afterward, in an effort to forget the pain, we drove straight to the Onion Pub, ordered strong Bloody Mary’s, and sat in silence.

Your Favorite junk food?
Most of my problems can be solved with red wine and dark chocolate.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three items would you want with you?
My boat, a CFB ball cap (hint, hint), and meatloaf.

Describe yourself in one word?

If you could create a WOD, what would it look like?
3 rounds
800m run
80 sit-ups
8 bench press
20 pull-up cash out
