How long have you been at CFTB: Almost 2 years

Favorite WOD or movements: Rope climbs, back squats, and the cardio based WODs. I actually like snatches too, they’re fun to perform

Tell us about your fitness journey: My friend (shout out to Sindy Delva 😊) invited me to thoroughbreds for a while before I decided to join. I didn’t exercise for years prior to joining and that’s why I was hesitant to go right into crossfit. I had this preconceived notion of what it was and thought I could never do it, but I fell in love from day one. It’s challenging in a satisfying way and I feel healthier now in my 30s than I ever felt. I still have a lot of work to do on my form for most of the movements but I feel more comfortable with them each time. Put it like this, I have never regretted going to class but I regret every time I don’t go! I’m hooked!

How has your fitness journey changed since joining CFTB? Simply stated, I’m more motivated to stay fit. My friends and coaches help motivate me to come consistently and stay on the right path with my fitness goals.

Favorite memory at CFTB: So many good memories in the 7:15 class 😉. Two things I remember doing for the first time that took me some guts to work up to and that’s when I completed a rope climb and my first box jump. It was a great feeling. I still get excited when I see them on the weekly board.

Any advice for new members or people thinking about trying CrossFit: Just do it! Don’t let your preconceived ideas of what crossfit is stop you from trying it. It’s okay if you can’t do the prescribed workout, I’ve been here for almost 2 years and I still typically don’t. Our coaches are incredible and they will help you achieve your goals at your level. Don’t let intimidation stop you from achieving great feats in your fitness.

Notes: Happy Memorial Day! Primary scaling options include 1/2 and 1/4 Murph. Preferred pull up scale is ring row. Preferred push up scale is hands elevated. Scale volume before version and avoid progressive scaling (hitting the limit with one exercise variation and then scaling in order keep going). This increases the risk of overuse injuries and Rhabdo.
