How were you introduced to Crossfit?
I was living in Atlanta and my mom called from Florida saying something about an “underground garage gym movement.” It sounded strange so I didn’t think twice about it. When I went home to Florida for Christmas break, my mom drove me down a dirt road to a storage facility and led me into a 10 x 10 ft storage unit. I was not impressed and I probably complained that there wasn’t air conditioning. But then we did the WOD- Tabatas. My mom destroyed me and I decided that was not going to happen again. I went back to Atlanta and joined Crossfit North Atlanta the next day. Before moving here (this past January) I made sure there was a solid crossfit gym I could go to. I stalked this website and it ended up being one of the reasons I followed through on the move!
“Mr. Joshua” (5 rounds: 400 meter run, 30 GHDs, 15 Deadlifts) &
“Elizabeth” (21-15-9: Squat Cleans; Ring Dips)
I have always wanted to
1.) Move across the country. Check!
2.) Ski/snowboard. Not yet but hopefully soon
1 word people use to describe me:
I think Rochelle called me a “beast” during a push-up WOD the other day. Only a crossfit girl would appreciate that 🙂
Outside of the gym I like to
make creations with my food processor (best investment ever), attempt to enlighten others about paleo eating (and then almost immediately regret it when they give me that you-are-crazy look), and explore the NW!
Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me:
Since I stalked this website for a while, I creepily recognized a lot of you before you met me!
Favorite physical activity outside of Crossfit:
Volleyball.. although I have a new found love for kickball. Go Bad Bromance!
Favorite place to eat in Portland:
This is a hard one considering I’ve eaten at approximately 3 places.. do food carts count?
Song that gets me pumped up for a workout:
If I’m lifting: Cake: Comfort Eagle. If I’m WODing: anything Rage Against the Machine
Surviving the Blue Ridge Mountain Adventure Race in sub-10 hrs! ..It felt like a never ending crossfit WOD. I’m going to stick to normal WODs now 🙂
Also, I’m glad I moved here and I’m having fun working out with the Crossfit Portland crew 🙂
