How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first experience/WOD?
George: I was introduced to Crossfit at the Crescent City Classic where some guys were telling me that I could train for a marathon without running all the long runs required. I then noticed that Crossfit NOLA was actually on my way to work. I registered for the free Saturday class with Eric and then signed up.
Louise: I started a couple of months after George. He loved it and I wanted to join too. I signed up for the free class, then fundamentals with Demian.
When did you first come to CrossFit NOLA?
G: I started May 2012
L: I started July 2012
What CrossFit accomplishment are you the most proud of?
G: I took part in the Crossfit Open this year. It was a great experience and I enjoyed it, despite being intimitated by it!
L: I am pleased that my double unders have improved a lot.
If there was any CrossFit movement that you could choose to never do again, what would it be?
G: Pull-ups - not because I dislike them, but because I can't do many of them!
L: Box jumps - I had a fear of doing them when I first started crossfit, and although I'm much better at them now, I'd be quite happy not to do them.
After a hard workout, what is your favorite meal?
L: Roasted chicken and vegetables.
On a Saturday night, where could we typically find you?
G: At home with my family.
What is one goal that you are currently working on that you will accomplish before the end of 2013?
G: I'd like to be able to do proper overhead squats with a reasonably heavy weight.
L: I would love to be able to do handstand push-ups.
