I am a Mommy of 3 AMAZING kids, and feel like the luckiest person in the world to be blessed with them!! We recently moved to Texas due to my husbands aviation career in the U.S Army
How did you get interested in Crossfit?
My girlfriend Annemarie was in CF and always had great things to say about CF and her box. I was initially intimidated by CF thinking there's no way this old ass mom of 3 with a broken back could hang! I decided to try out one class and was hooked from the very beginning. As a recent stay at home mom my whole world revolved around my babies and being a good wife. CF gave me something that was all about me for once, it's my hour a day where I'm not the cheer coach, not the PTO mom, not the Commanders wife, not wiping butts and kissing boo boo's just something that I work hard at for myself
When your motivation is down, how do find the drive to get up and come in?
I remind myself of the body I once had before kids it is a struggle to stay motivated especially since I get up at 4am everyday to work out but I know once I get there, see all my favorite morning faces, and get warmed up I will feel great!! It definitely helps that I have met such amazing people here and I genuinely love being around them
What is your least favorite movement?
Ugh, those damn overhead squats!!! I hate them, I hate them!!! Not a huge fan of those evil snatches either
What is your next goal that Crossfit Cataclysm can help you reach?
I really want to just improve EVERYTHING!! Increase my weights, improve my form, RX more work outs. I know that these things take time and hard work but with the Badass coaches we have, I know I'll get there
What would you say to someone that has never tried Crossfit and is looking to get started? Tips, advice?
I would tell them that CF really is life changing, I'm not someone with a lot of confidence nor am I very physically strong but what I love about CF is it's all scaled to the individual. The encouragement you get from your peers and coaches is just amazing and CF will 100% make you so much more mentally and physically stronger
