What were your experiences as an athlete before starting CF?
I played all kinds of sports growing up. Swimming, Wrestling, Martial Arts.
What was your first visit to CFR like?
I was hooked after my first visit. I do not remember the workout, but I do remember everyone being friendly and thinking that I want to join Crossfit Rekkr.
What is your favorite WOD/workout/movement?
What was your biggest CrossFit fear and how did you overcome it?
My biggest fear is hurting myself, but I do not let that control me. I work hard on strength and technique so that I do not have to worry.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
Were you part of the Open this year? How did it go?
Yes, this year was my first open. I was surprised by how many workouts I was about to complete as RX.
Have you done any competitions and if so, tell us about it.
Yes, I did Ragnarok last year. I plan on doing it every year until I get my name on the shield.
Finish this sentence, “Since starting at CFR, the biggest change is…..”
Strength and Attitude. I am stronger now than I have ever been in my life. Crossfit is tough, but every workout I complete reminds me there is nothing that I can not do.
