  1. When did you start CrossFit and why?

 

I started CrossFit in April 2017.  My husband Dante had been begging me to join with him and I was intimidated and hesitant to join.  I felt out of shape and sluggish all the time. I didn’t see myself running, jumping or lifting like everyone else.  I have always had to limit myself due to an old knee injury but Dan ensured me that there were modifications that I could do which made me feel more at ease.

  1. Tell us a little about your life outside the gym (family, job, hobbies, interests, etc)

 

Fortunate to have a supporting, loving husband Dante and the coolest stepdaughter in the world.  I have been working in Digital Advertising for almost 10 years. I enjoy spending time with family and friends!

 

  1. What were you doing before CrossFit?

 

Before CrossFit, I had been doing the bare minimum – treadmill, elliptical, basic weight training – and not seeing results.  I was never the most athletic growing up so working out just felt like something I had to do to stay somewhat in shape.

 

  1. What were your goals when joining CrossFit and how have you achieved those goals?

 

Like most people joining a gym, my goal was to get into shape and lose weight.  When I first started, I was out of breath rowing 500m and now I actually enjoy rowing a 2k (even the 5K).  I have also been counting macros or following a template since summer 2017 and I have lost a total of 20 lbs since I started!  (Thanks to the guidance of Mallory and Nicole!)

 

  1. How has CrossFit affected your life outside the gym?

 

Working out was never something I enjoyed to do.  It was almost a chore. Since joining CrossFit, I actually enjoy working out.  It’s the hour of the day where I can “relax” before really relaxing. I also sleep better than I had before and have lots more energy!

 

  1. What advice would you give to someone new to CrossFit or thinking about giving it a shot?

 

Try it!  From someone who was skeptical, you might actually like it.  Pennant has a really great community and I have made some great friends since joining!!
