WHAT INITIALLY GOT YOU INTO CROSSFIT AND WHAT KEEPS YOU COMING BACK?
I got here from a challenge Program that I found on fb, I did not have any idea what Crossfit is, I was just bored going to regular gym and I decided to try it. This is what keeps me here, you never get bored it's an intense workout different day by day
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF. WHAT DO YOU DO OUTSIDE OF THE GYM?
Outside of the gym I work, I love spending time with my boyfriend and my dog. I like to read, also hanging out with friends. Trying to keep myself busy. I don't like to cook and I don't watch TV- it's a waste of time for me
WHAT’S AN ACCOMPLISHMENT OR GOAL YOU’VE REACHED DUE TO CROSSFIT THAT’S MADE YOU THE MOST PROUD?
I've accomplished a lot more than I thought was possible which I am very proud of. Thinking that I started from 0 and I couldn't do any movement. I am really proud that I can RX some of the workouts
IF THERE WAS ONE CROSSFIT MOVEMENT YOU’D LIKE TO PERFECT, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
I am happy with how far I have come, but I still need to improve every movement. I have a lot of work ahead of me, mostly the double unders which I struggle with.
ANY ADVICE FOR SOMEONE INTERESTED IN TRYING OUT CROSSFIT?
Since I started Crossfit my body shape changed, also I feel more confident and strong. I'm physically and mentally healthy. I tell everyone to try Crossfit, it keeps you in shape, you have fun working out with the group, you get to know interesting people that give you motivation which is Judy in my case :) for me Judy is a super woman she motivates me everyday.
