SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE: Eileen Horsmon

This month we have chosen Eileen Horsmon as our spotlight athlete! She has been a CFR athlete for over a year now and we keep seeing her constant improvements. Eileen listens to coaching cues and takes direction very well. She is incredibly strong (like super woman strong!) and always has some impressive numbers on the board! Eileen consistently attends the 4:30pm class and unceasingly brings good vibes with her! We love having Eileen apart of our CrossFit Rolesville community and couldn’t be more proud of her progress!

Age: 27

Occupation: Law Enforcement Officer

 

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville?

When I maxed out my back squat at 275 🙂

How did you find CFR? Why do you train?

A friend from work invited me to try Crossfit with her for the first time and I loved it from the very start. I train because it’s makes me happy and healthy!

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?

My favorite moment at CFR was probably when I PR’ed my back squat. I’m not the best at plate math so I was pleasantly surprised when my max had doubled from when I lifted in college.

What is your daily motivation to workout?

Beach season…

Favorite and least favorite movements?

It is no surprise that my least favorite movement is backwards bear crawls. I look more like a baby giraffe than a bear. My favorite movement is power cleans.

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

I would tell a new CrossFitter to not compare themselves so harshly to other athletes. It’s great to be competitive but it’s more important to pat yourself on the back when you meet a new goal.

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?

I can’t think of one song but pretty much anything in the EDM genre.

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

I can listen to a song 1,000 times and still never know the lyrics. I should know every word to “Come on Eileen” and it stumps me every time!
