How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I started at CFV 6 months ago.
What’s your favorite workout?
I really enjoy the EMOM style workouts.
What’s your favorite movement?

I really enjoy Deadlifts.

Why do you do CrossFit?

I want to be strong and healthy so I can keep moving this body for as long as possible. I also want our kids to see my husband and I prioritize our health so they can create the same good habits as they get older.

What meal could you eat every day for the rest of your life?

Oh man this is a really close race between tacos and pizza but I think tacos wins!

What has CFV helped you do, achieve?
After being at another fitness studio for a little over 5 years, I started to get complacent and was losing motivation to go to the gym. I realized I really missed lifting and decided to come back to CrossFit (I had previously been a member at another box about 13 years ago). I am so glad I did! It is really awesome learning that my body can still learn and do new things! CFV was just the spark I needed!
If you could have dinner with anyone dead or alive, who would it be and why?

My grandfather because he passed away when I was so young I didn’t have the time with him I did with my other grandparents.

Top three favorite movies.

Only 3?! Most movies I watch these days are Disney but I love Princess Bride, Top Gun, and Sandlot.

What makes you the happiest?

Spending time with my family, especially being outdoors and traveling to new places together.

Anything else you want to add?

CFV has been so welcoming from day one. It is so easy to see how passionate the coaches are at helping each member achieve their goals. Everyone is so friendly and encouraging it is truly the best community! I am so glad I made the decision to join 6 months ago!
