I was a military brat. We lived a large part of my childhood in Germany. My Dad retired here though. I moved away for several years but then decided that my kids needed their grandparents and moved back. I'm a pharmacist at the HEB here in Harker Heights. It's a job I absolutely love and I'm so blessed to be working there.
How did you get interested in Crossfit?
A manager at my workplace was talking about how much he enjoyed Crossfit. My coworker and friend Ashley said to me, "I'll try it if you will." The next day we scheduled our free class. The rest is history.
When your motivation is down, how do find the drive to get up and come in?
I find my motivation by knowing that after the workout I will feel great and have more energy. It also helps that I have to sign up for classes and am held accountable for attending. Signing up the day before always sounds like a great idea but I don't always feel that way at 6am. I know they are expecting me so I go anyways. I'm always happy I did.
What is your least favorite movement?
I really don't like wall balls. They kick my butt every time
What is your next goal that Crossfit Cataclysm can help you reach?
I want to continue to build my strength and endurance. I've made huge strides since starting Crossfit and that motivates me to do more. A couple of my goals are to do a strict pull up and to do multiple burpees without looking like I'm dragging myself off the floor.
What would you say to someone that has never tried Crossfit and is looking to get started? Tips, advice?
I would tell them that if they would just give it a try, they would love it. It is hard, but scalable to every level of fitness. The best part though is the people. Both the coaches and athletes are so positive and encouraging that you honestly believe that anything is possible.
