We met Kristen the day we opened when she popped in to check us out and make sure her teacher friends were in good hands. That first day she made a Personal Best on her Push Press. Fastforward a bit and we are more than happy she has become apart of our family and into our lives. Her accomplishments in the past few weeks have been incredible: Rope Climbs, PR clean and jerk, and back squat, just to name the most recent. Seeing her in the 5:30am class makes our day and gets us coaches started on the right foot. She brings the sense of community and spirit of CrossFit to the box as she is always cheering on the other people beside her. She is one of our #1 supporters and we cant thank her enough for that. Keep killing it and having fun Kristen! 


What was your exercise regime before CrossFit?


I belonged to Bally's for a long time, I would go occasionally and run on the treadmill or do the eliptical machines. I never had any real coaching or personal training so it became more of a  social outing than a workout.
How many WODs per week do you attend?
I try to get there at least 3-4 times a week any more than that is a bonus.

Favorite CrossFit exercise?

Cleans, Double Unders and Kettle Bell Swings

Least favorite exercise?

WALL BALLS! and I am not a huge fan of rowing oh and thrusters...

What would you tell a newbie getting started that helped you?

Crossfit is for everyone! I started at a box  6 weeks after giving birth to my 3rd kid and I watched all these people half my size snatching and cleaning huge numbers, doing pull ups, rope climbing  and I thought I would never be able to do that. But with the right coaches along the way I can do things now I NEVER saw myself doing when I started. So don't be discouraged and TRUST  your coaches.

What would you like to accomplish in the next 3 months?

I always just try and get better each time I walk in, but if I had to pick one goal it would be to get to the very top of the rope! If you know me that would be huge!
 What is a fun fact about you?
I have never been to Disney.
