How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first experience/WOD?
A friend in Tampa would always post pictures on Facebook of herself flipping tires on the beach and it looked like fun! Once I saw CrossFit NOLA open – I knew I had to try it. I was working fulltime and doing my MBA at night, so it took me a few months after CrossFit NOLA opened to schedule a free intro class. Brandon was my trainer and I was the only one that showed up. After Brandon led me through all of the movements for 50 minutes, he then said, “Alright, you ready to do the WOD?” I nearly died … I thought that was the workout!
When did you first come to CrossFit NOLA?
July 2011. After the free intro class (I could barely move for a week afterwards), I signed up for Fundamentals.
What CrossFit accomplishment are you the most proud of?
Pull ups and double unders! I’m also proud of my consistency – it is very rare that I’ll miss a 5:30pm WOD during the week.
If there was any CrossFit movement that you could choose to never do again, what would it be?
Thrusters! Without a doubt. After Karen, I made my peace with wallballs … but thrusters and I will never get along.
After a hard workout, what is your favorite meal?
Company Burger! Honestly, I cook about 6 nights a week so I usually have chicken or pork grilled and lots of veggies.
On a Saturday night, where could we typically find you?
I love food, so if I’m out on a Saturday night it means I’m eating good food somewhere. Otherwise you can find me at home watching a movie with my husband and dogs.
What is one goal that you are currently working on that you will accomplish before the end of 2013?
I really would like to get better on all squats and variations of squats, including those dreaded thrusters. I probably need Rae yelling at me to explode out the hole!
