How/why did you start Crossfit?
I spent a few years struggling through boot camp style workouts using RKC (aka Hard Style) Kettlebells. In those workouts there was the occasional tire flip, rope climb or box jump. I absolutely loved the feeling of empowerment that came with learning how to do these movements so I started searching and realized that Crossfitters did that sort of thing all the time. Once I decided Crossfit was where I wanted to be it took me a long time to have the courage to show up…
How long have you been crossfitting?
I joined last April, so coming up on about 8 months.
What are your favorite and least favorite movements?
Favorite: I’ll always enjoy Kettlebell work (mostly because I’m comfortable with the movements). I’m also really enjoying learning how to lift. What am AMAZING and challenging thing working with a barbell is. And, I love (hate) burpees.
What are some of your goals?
Right now I’m chasing competence. It will be a GREAT day when I have the strength and ability to do movements that I currently have to find alternatives for (HSPU’s, Pullups, Double Unders to name a few). And I really, really want to be able to do a pull-up!
