When did you start CrossFitting? 2009

How did you hear about CrossFit? I’ve been bowling with Amy for a few years and she kept telling me about how great CrossFit is and that I really needed to try it out, so I did and I love it.

What do you like/dislike about CrossFit? I like the WODs and sometimes at the time doing them, dislike them, but even on the days that I don’t like them, after the WOD is finished I liked it.  I liked pushing myself (which I need to do more of), I would never push myself that much going to a regular gym or at home.  So even sometimes I’m dying afterwards, I really do like it.

Favorite WOD/Exercises/Skill? Fight Gone Bad.

Least favorite WOD/exercise/skill? Overhead squats and Burpees

Besides CrossFit what do you like to do? Sports/Hobbies/Activities?  Hiking, kayaking, Skiing, traveling.

Goals for 2011? Work on technique, strength, and endurance.

Advice for a newbie? Keep with it.  I found it to be so much better then going to a sports club or a personal trainer.  I’ve learned so much more and pushed myself more than I would have at any of those other places and the encouragement from the others in class is great.

Kim goes big over head.
