How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first experience/WOD?
I heard about CrossFit from a friend. My first reaction was, "You worked out for 8 minutes? That's IT?!!" I thought it was totally crazy and I didn't believe it could do you any good.
My first experience was at CrossFit NOLA during my tiny (2 person) fundamentals class. I really enjoyed the first session, so I came back for two more. And the rest is a long beautiful history of blisters, sore shoulders, and floor burn.
When did you first come to CrossFit NOLA?
I first visited CrossFit NOLA during the Po Boy Fest 2010. Brent and I were looking for a place to park near Oak Street, so we cruised by the gym (911 Joliet). Mollie was there and told us to grab a spot. I saw the inside of the gym, saw Mollie's amazing legs and decided to sign up for a class.
What CrossFit accomplishment are you the most proud of?
I am really proud of my pull-ups! I still can't string many in a row, but I can do them without a band and that's a huge accomplishment for me. I'm so proud that I once did them in Las Vegas, hanging from scaffolding outside a casino.
I am also really proud of my snatch. Isn't every girl?
If there was any CrossFit movement that you could choose to never do
again, what would it be?
Wall balls. I could not walk for days after last year's Open workout 12.4 (150 wall balls followed by a few double unders.. I never made it to the muscle-ups).
