How long have you been CrossFitting?
About 6 months
How did you find out about CrossFit?

Working on the mobile app Coach’s Eye

What made you want to try it? 

I was tired of the same gym routine and needed a new mental challenge. CrossFit is challenging in it’s technical movements but more mentally challenging than anything.

What are movements do you do well and/or enjoy?

The Clean and Jerk and Push Jerk are two of my favorite movements, Pull ups and any squat are great too. Anytime we have a WOD with a barbell you know it’s going to be fun!

Which movements do you currently struggle with?

The Snatch is by far my toughest movement. High level of complexity and danger have me struggling to overcome both mental and physical blocks.

How has CrossFit positively impacted your life?
CrossFit has taught me more about myself than any traditional fitness regimen. It teaches you how to push yourself mentally and physically. It allows you to explore the boundaries of your mind and body, and ultimately to know yourself better. With coaches that program based on skill level and look out for your safety; CrossFit can help you realize your true potential. It’s a constant struggle but that’s why you come back every day; to beat your best.
