When did you first start CrossFitting?: October 2016

When did you first start training at CFE?: October 2016

Favorite WOD: DT (Anything with a barbell, moderate weight, moderate reps)

Least Favorite WOD: Fran (Only because Trevor made me dry heave on the last set and yelled at me to keep going, and I did)

Tell us about your sports and fitness background: I played sports in high school and college. I lifted competitively in college, went to Collegiate Nationals in 2008. Then I literally hadn’t done anything since I graduated.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit?: Paul Cain convinced me to come to CFE and sign up for a year. I was anti-crossfit before coming to CFE. He actually paid for the first couple months in the first year, pending I actually stay committed. I did and never turned back. I can never thank him enough.

Take us back to your first WOD…what was it and how did it feel?: The first week I was at CFE, I felt like I was going to puke every day. (I actually did a few times). With my weightlifting background, I thought I could come in here and be a super hero. Well, that first couple weeks, I felt like I was hit by a semi-truck. I loved it though.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit?: My cousin owns her own CF gym in Norway and after seeing how much she loved it, I had to try it.

Take us back to your first WOD…what was it and how did it feel?: I remember it was sled pushes, box jumps and overhead lunges. I don’t remember the exact workout, but I do remember after a few rounds I got to the point where my legs were so tired I couldn’t even jump anymore.
