Stay at home mom

What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?
I love music and singing, even though I’m not good at it, also going to the movies, playing board games and occasionally cooking.

What brought you to CrossFit Equality (CFE)?
My old box closed down and I chose to try out CFE.

What was your first impression? Has it changed?
The first impression that I got was “it’s clean and organized”. Two months in and it has not changed.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit? (before / after )
In 2 months I’m down two pants size and went from an X-large to large in shirts. Overall I feel leaner and definitely stronger.

What has caused your greatest improvement?
Dedication and commitment! Being a busy mom, I’ve made working out a priority. Thanks to CFE I can even bring my children. So no excuses.

What sort of changes and benefits in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
#1 Confidence! I would have never thought I could do CrossFit because of my weight and disability. #2 Active! I now enjoy being more active in and out the box, especially because I have children.

What do you love most about CrossFit Equality?
I love the coaches, staff and other athletes. The coaches are helpful and are willing to go the extra mile. During the WODs everyone pushes you and cheers you on for you can finish, whether you’re first or last. It’s awesome!

Any advice for people just getting started?
For anyone getting started, #1 listen to your coach and #2 enjoy it. You will be surprised how far you get.
