Spotlight Athlete: Lauren Chudzinski


Spotlight Athlete: Lauren Chudzinski

For the month of October, we’ve chosen not one…not two…but THREE spotlight athletes. Our first one we’d like to feature is Lauren Chudzinski! Lauren came to us after her previous gym had closed her doors. Without any hesitation, she quickly became apart of our CrossFit Rolesville community and a consistent 4:30 goer. Lauren has improved in so many areas of her fitness and we couldn’t have been prouder of her when she participated in the Open this past year. Unfortunately, Lauren is relocating this month. We are extremely sad to see her go. But she will forever be apart of our CFR family. And her Raven Cheerleading Picture will forever hang on our bulletin board! 🙂 

Age: 37

Occupation: paralegal

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville? 

Getting my first pull-up! And making so many friends who I know will be lifelong.

How did you find CFR? 

I drove by many times and was so intimidated. But when my former gym closed, I figured why not?! Best decision I ever made!

Why do you train? 

So I can indulge my sweet tooth and love of all things carbs.

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?

Friday Night Lights!!! It took some convincing to get me there, but I am so glad I did.

What is your daily motivation to workout?

To get to spend time, laugh, and work hard with some of the best people ever!

Favorite and least favorite movements? 

Favorite: power clean or double unders Least favorite: deadlifts

What’s one thing you would tell to a new CrossFitter?

Just walk through the door. You will not regret a single moment and will be amazed at what you can accomplish.

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?

90’s pop 

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know. 

I am actually super shy until you get to know me (despite what you may think now!)
