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.
