MWOD for Quads and Glutes:
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.
I am a biology teacher at First Colonial High School in VB.
I hate GHD sit-ups. I love power cleans.
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.
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.
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.
