We’re kicking off the new year with Natasha Poindexter as our January Spotlight Athlete! Tasha is 22 (soon to be 23 on January 8th!), a bartender, and a nursing student. With work and school on her plate she always manages to make CFR and her fitness a priority. She has only been with us for a little over six months but has progressed tremendously. Several other athletes have noticed as well her increase in strength and stamina. Unfortunately, she is headed back to nursing school (which we wish her all the best!) but she will always be welcome at CFR and we are extremely proud to have her as an athlete and friend!
Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville?
Hmm..probably the first time I completed a workout doing pull ups! Finally got that RX!
How did you find CFR? Why do you train?
I found CFR by googling Crossfit Rolesville haha. I train because it makes me feel great and I love seeing how much more I can accomplish each day.
What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?
One of my favorite moments was when I finished “The Seven” workout with Thomas and Graham. That was one of the hardest workouts ever! Or the day I beat Ryan at Helen!!!
What is your daily motivation to workout?
Knowing how much good Crossfit does for my body and for my mindset. I always feel better when I leave the gym. Also, there is always some movement or PR to be accomplished and I always have a goal to work towards.
Favorite and least favorite movements?
Favorite Movement..does swinging on the rings with a band count? I highly recommend everyone to try
that. Least Favorite…running.
What’s one thing you would tell to a new CrossFitter?
We have all started at the same place you are right now. We all know what it’s like and everyone is here to help. We are one big family!
One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?
Fight Night by Migos
Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know.
I am going to miss you guys TONS!! I am so happy that my first Crossfit experience was with you guys!
