CONGRATS SUE!!!!! You are our athlete of the month!

 

1.      How long have you been CrossFitting and what got you started?  I have been CrossFitting for approximately 3 years now.  Kari Metzen had been after me to come join her in a class.  I finally gave in and have been hooked ever since.

 

2. What is your favorite WOD/lift/skill?  I love anything that has Olympic lifts in it, especially power/ hang cleans, bear complex or push press. 

 

3. What are your CrossFit goals?  Immediate/Longterm   –  My goals change as I go along.  Immediate goals are to keep my strength in back squats and get my deadlift over 200 lbs.  Longterm goals are to one day be able to do a handstand pushup and walk on my hands. I have no clue why I want to do that.

 

4. If you weren’t doing CrossFit, you’d be… a couch potato who dreams about being physically fit.

 

5. Has CrossFit changed your life? How? CrossFit has changed my life in many ways! I am more confident and much, much stronger than I ever dreamed possible.  I am more fit than I’ve ever been and find myself setting goals/challenges for myself.  

 

6. Once you see the WOD each day, what’s the first thing you do/think – After I silently say a bad word, I think about how I can get through the WOD efficiently and work it to my strengths. Then I put my head down and just go.

 

7. What’s something that most people don’t know about you? -I set really high expectations for myself and am really competitive.  I’m also the grandmother of 6!

 

8. What’s your day job? How does CrossFit help you in your job?  I work with students with special needs and at times, I need to be able to move quickly.  CrossFit has improved my stamina, mobility and flexibility.

 

9. Why did you choose our studio? I came to class not knowing what to expect and I’ve never looked back.  I love the girls, the workouts and the variety.  Workouts are individualized and you can’t get that anywhere else. 

LOVE your energy in class Sue – You are an AMAZING woman!!!!
