Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am an attorney in the Army and a mother of four great kids. We have three dogs, two cats, and it is usually a madhouse when we are at home. I love languages, traveling, and exposing my kids to different sports and activities.
How did you get interested in Crossfit?
My husband introduced me to CrossFit a couple of years ago, but I didn’t like the negative stigma associated with it and with two hurt shoulders and no one showing me how to scale the movements, CrossFit wasn’t for me. When we moved to TX, I decided to give it another try. CrossFit Cataclysm changed my perception of CrossFit. The coaches and people are great, the coaches give multiple options to scale based on your ability and limitations, and no one makes you feel bad about doing it.
When your motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and come in?
My 5:00am people. We are each-others motivation. And I know it will be worth it afterwards.
What is your least favorite movement?
Overhead squats. I don’t know if I will ever get passed the baby bar.
What is the next goal you hope to reach with Crossfit Cataclysm?
Maintaining overall fitness while working towards my personal running goal. Additionally, I hope to RX more workouts in the future.
What would you say to someone that has never tried CrossFit and looking to get started? Any tips or Advice?
Just do it! CrossFit is for everyone, no matter your fitness level. The coaches will teach you the movements and help you determine what weight and movement is appropriate.
