How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first experience/WOD? I heard about CrossFit from a friend in Baton Rouge a year before I actually got involved. I tried to follow the website on my own but there was too much information to sift through at the time and I need quite a bit of scaling. I tried another facility in town but you know the rest of that story.
When did you first come to CrossFit NOLA? December 2011.
What CrossFit accomplishment are you the most proud of? I am most proud of getting my husband, Mat,t involved with me. Now if I can get my children involved that will be saying something! Personally, I am proud that I can occasionally do those 20” box jumps.
If there was any CrossFit movement that you could choose to never do again, what would it be? Well, there was that completely terrifying game of Dodgeball…
After a hard workout, what is your favorite meal? Since I do early morning classes it generally means breakfast, so I make a breakfast burrito with my own chicken’s eggs, sugar free sausage and coconut wrap with a side of V8 juice and coffee.
On a Saturday night, where could we typically find you? Wherever the fun is. We love going to new restaurants, bars and music clubs as well as sporting events. However, I must say that CrossFit is cutting into my social life because I get very tired around 9 PM and most of the action around this town happens after that.
What is one goal that you are currently working on that you will accomplish before the end of 2012? I hope to complete 30 consecutive double-unders. The most I have done is 15 so it is possible.
What do you like best about Crossfit and Crossfit NOLA? I like the members and the personal attention we all get from the trainers.
Anything else you would like to add? I believe that CrossFit is for everyone regardless of their current abilities or lack of fitness. I am also an orthopedic physical therapist specializing in low back and neck pain and really enjoy treating my CrossFit friends.
