The people. I like the programming, but I love the friends I’ve made, the coaches & the amazing childcare workers who give me an hour of sanity.

Very 1st-7 min AMRAP of 5 pull-ups, 10 push press, 15 squats; 1st @ WCF-Fran.

 

In what ways has CrossFit changed your life?

As a 41 year old mom of 3, I’m stronger & healthier than I’ve ever been.  I was a kid who dreaded gym class & neve played sports; now I think workouts are fun & I love being active with my family.

Long AMRAPS (Cindy) and/or ones w/ lots of variety (The Seven, Filthy 50).

 

Least Favorite Workout/movement?

Wall Balls & Thrusters…which are essentially the same movement really.

 

Any advice you would give to newbies?

Don’t get caught up comparing yourself to others.  Do track your own scored & results (including scaling) so you can see your personal improvements.
