What is your favorite part of CrossFit? I like the fact that there is no hiding, your coaches and team mates call you out and push you harder. The competitive spirit and constant push for progress makes me better. I also like the variety of CrossFit and challenge of always learning new techniques or advance movements.
What motivates you to continue to CrossFit? I am seeing continued progress with my general fitness, health, energy level, etc. The community at our CrossFit also has a lot to do with it. I have developed some amazing friends through this community who share a similar passion. I love that I start my mornings with some amazing people who push me to be better!
What are your favorite movements and favorite WOD? My goal when joining CrossFit was to do pull ups, which I can now successfully do. My favorite movements include squats, cleans, body movements (Pushup, pullups, etc.). One of my favorite WOD’s is Murph both for what it stands for and for the mental challenge of finishing.
What is your favorite CrossFit memory? Watching my daughter compete in the kids CrossFit competition held at CFR.
What is the best advice you can give a fellow CrossFitter? While it’s good to push yourself, don’t compare yourself. Everyone is at different levels. If you put in the time, you will see the impact.
Tell us something about yourself (Not fitness related) that others might not know? I was raised in Hopkinton, have worked for EMC (now Dell EMC) for 19 years in Hopkinton and now live here with my family. My husband (Scott) and our two kids (Ryan -7 and Taylor - 10) all do CrossFit at CFR- it’s a family activity!
