If you don’t know her, you should. She rocks, and here’s her story:
How/Why did you start Crossfit?
After having my last baby, I was very overweight and unhappy with myself. I knew I needed to make a huge change by starting to take better care of myself so I can be a happy and healthy Mom for my boys. And it was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
How long have you been doing it?
I started my Crossfit journey 15 months ago.
What are your favorite and least favorite movements?
I can say I like doing or trying to do everything, even burpees.
What have been the benefits you’ve seen?
The main goal for starting was to lose weight. So far I’ve lost 35 pounds and I feel absolutely amazing. But I’ve learned that its not just about losing weight. I am so much stronger, I have energy, and I can play and wrestle with my boys without feeling tired or having to stop after a few minutes. I feel more confident about myself because I am able to do things I never thought were possible. I have conquered so many fears through Crossfit, it has completely changed my life. It helped me become more concerned about nutrition and how important your diet can be. And all of this has happened in 15 months! And I am so excited to see where I’ll be in another 15 months!
I am so grateful for the amazing people I have met and my wonderful Coaches for all their love and support. And being able to share this with my Mother and Grandmother is totally awesome!
What are some of your goals?
I have surpassed EVERY single goal I have set for myself. But one day, I WILL get a muscle up! I would like to back squat 200 pounds and unassisted pistols.
What’s something nobody would know about you?
I was once a Crossfit hater….. Yes, I know. I have seen the light! And the error of my ways! I love Crossfit! And LOVE Crossfit Oceana and EVERYONE here!
Since Sarah was interviewed, she achieved her goal of unassisted pistols! We are so proud of you, Sarah and look forward to witnessing many more PRs!
