How long have you been CrossFitting, and why did you start?
I started in August 2012. I was growing tired of doing the same old lifting routines at LA Fitness. While I was on a ski trip to Utah, a friend in Salt Lake insisted that I try Crossfit as a better way to work out (her parents both own a box and compete locally there). I was hesitant, but I couldn’t get the notion to try Crossfit out of my head all year. That August, I realized I had nothing to lose. Once I started taking classes, I never looked back.
What is your favorite WOD?

Most definitely thrusters.
If there were one movement you wish the coaches didn’t know, what would it be?
What is the strangest talent you have?

Describe your biggest milestone, achievement or “a-ha” moment?
Getting my first ring muscle-ups was the sweetest!
What can you do now that you never thought you’d be able to do the first time you walked through the gym doors?
