Meet Anita.

anita1

She’s a wife to 1 beastly man, a mama to 2 A-dorable boys, a teacher, and owner/baker of Anita Little Paleo. She’s a ball of energy in the gym and we love having her! We asked her some questions to get to know her better:

 

 

How/why did you start Crossfit?

I started CrossFit in January of 2012 so my CF addicted husband would stop nagging me to try a class. My intention was to go to one class and never go back. As you can see, I was hooked. 

What’s your day job when you’re not acting like a super hero in the gym?

I am a biology teacher at First Colonial High School in VB. 

Anita4What are your favorite and least favorite movements?

I hate GHD sit-ups. I love power cleans. 

What have been the benefits of Crossfit in your life?

The biggest benefit to me was that I gained self confidence and a better body image. I used to want to be skinny. Now I’m happy being fit and instead of looking at the weight on the scale for motivation, I look at the weight on the barbell. CrossFit has been very empowering for me. 

 

 

What are some of your goals?

Ive been chasing a 185# DeadLift for over a year and finally got it!! I know for some that’s not a very lofty goal, but for me, it’s HUGE!! I don’t compete, and don’t set huge PR’s often. I like to do fundraiser WODs and just enjoy CrossFit for the camaraderie and the fitness.

Anita2What’s something others might not know about you?

Since starting CF, I’ve happily gained 15 lbs. I also own and ran Anita Little Paleo. I used to travel on weekends to CF Comps and sell my GF/DF muffins, cookies, and blondies. I loved it. I got to meet several games athletes and loved making new friends everywhere I went. The CF Community is so friendly and inviting that people welcomed me with open arms. I am no longer “officially” in business but still make cookie orders for friends and can bake orders upon request.

 

Thank you for sharing, Anita! We loved getting to know you better :)
