Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville? My first pull up! My whole life I have been active and played sports but never had the upper body strength to do a pull up. It took me a year when I started but I finally got one!

How did you find CFR? Why do you train? I found CFR before it opened. I drove by and decided to give it a try. So glad I did, it has changed my life. I train to become stronger and stay healthy, I want to set a good example for my two girls that strong is beautiful. 

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR? The Open. I love seeing everyone cheer and encourage each other to do their very best. So many things happen that people think they aren’t capable of. It’s inspiring.

What is your daily motivation to workout? To Just feel better. Life just seems easier after my workouts. Physically and mentally.

Favorite and least favorite movements? Favorites are Back squats, overheard Squats, pretty much anything with a squat and least favorite is Double Unders and HSPU.

What’s one thing you would tell to a new CrossFitter? Don’t give up, keep coming to class and never look back. Crossfit works, just be smart and listen to your coaches.

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD? Most workouts Im so concentrated on counting I don’t even know whats playing but to get me pumped up usually rap and rock music will do it.

Tell us something about yourself that we don’t already know. I am also a certified Wedding Planner!
