SPOTLIGHT ATHLETE: Yaya Aguilar

We are excited to announce that Yaya Aguilar is our January Spotlight Athlete! Yaya has been a CFR athlete for quite some time now. She is very consistent and always puts in the hard work for each WOD. Yaya’s progress is extremely impressive and there’s no hiding her strength. She always listen’s to advice from her coaches, attends community events and has an awesome attitude in class. We couldn’t be prouder to have Yaya (and Bubba!) apart of our CrossFit Rolesville family! 

Age: 29

Occupation: Stay at home mom or as bubba would say “Mommy superman”

Proudest accomplishment at CrossFit Rolesville?

While im still not very good at them, getting toes to bar was a big milestone for me because it seemed like it was something that I was never going to get and the first toes to bar was 100% accidental. How did you find CFR? Why do you train? My husband motivated me to start CrossFit right after bubba was born and it was the best decision ever! I train to stay mentally sane.

What is your favorite moment so far at CFR?

It’s too hard to pick a favorite moment, seriously I have so many memories at CFR from bubbas first steps to my personal PRs.

What is your daily motivation to workout?

Like I said, I do it to stay mentally sane haha

Favorite and least favorite movements?

Favorite I would have to say cleans and squats. Least favorite is definitely jerks, split jerks.

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

You’ll never beat Taylor 😂 …But seriously, scaling is great. 👌🏽

One song that gets you amped up during a WOD?

I’m okay as long as there is music playing. I really don’t like to hear myself slowly dying but 80s rock and emo music is my favorite. Also, DJ Megan rocks!

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

When I was little my brother and I would perform dances in front of big crowds at school events and such. Of course now I have stage freight and acute social anxiety. lol
