Dream WOD-EMOTM, I also love WOD’s with jump rope and box jumps

Worst Workout- Pull ups, I have a lot of work I need to do on my pullups. I’m sure I’ll enjoy them when I’m not struggling as bad.

When and why did you start Crossfit? – I started in May of this year. I started for a few reasons. To get a great workout. I enjoy high intensity workouts otherwise I get bored and lazy. I’m a people person. I also wanted to learn new things.

What do you like best about Crossfit? – The community of crossfit. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming. Everyone has support from one another and the coaches

What is your workout schedule, what class do you prefer? – I work late and long days, So I like to start my day with a workout. I prefer 5:30 AM or 6AM classes. I’ve actually never attended a later class.

What is your most memorable Crossfit moment? – Probably when I fell out of my bands mid-way through a pullup. I’m still a beginner so hoping to make more memorable moments as I improve my skills.

Do you remember your first workout? – I do, I dropped in on Caitlin’s 6 Am class. Everyone was very welcoming and encouraging. I’m not sure about what WOD we did that day. I do remember that pullups were part of the workout that day. I remember thinking about how bad ass everybody was. Definitely inspiring.

Any advice for anyone thinking about starting Crossfit? – Stop thinking and join Crossfit. Don’t worry about your fitness level starting out. Things get easier and you will see improvement in yourself every workout the other members and coaches are there to support you, whether you’ve been going for 5 years or a few weeks.

What is the first thing you think about when you get up? – Crossfit of course! That’s only because I would rather go back to sleep, but I need to make it to my 6 AM class.

Describe your athletic background – As a kid and teen I played sports, but not super competitively. I played softball all four years of high school. As an adult I’ve become more athletic.

Tell us about your goals ( short term/Long term) – My short term goals are just to improve my form in a lot of the workouts. My long term goal is to stay motivated and maybe do a RX pullup.
