How long have you been at CrossFit Thoroughbreds: About 1 ½ Years
Favorite WOD or movement: Hammer Swings
Tell us about your fitness journey: I was completely water-logged as a kid and grew up in the competitive swimming world. I started training year-round at 8 years old and was a collegiate athlete. Unfortunately, I feel into the trap of everyday life and let the importance of my health and physical shape take a back seat to employment and every-day life. Aches, pains and injuries started happening and I decided it was time to change. A co-worker of mine was talking about her gym and from the moment I saw and felt the community atmosphere I was hooked.
How has your fitness journey changed since joining CrossFit Thoroughbreds: It has changed from going to the gym to really wanting to be able to do some of the functional movements that I took for granted in my youth.
Favorite memory at CrossFit Thoroughbreds: Loved the pregnancy WOD. It is just one of the examples of how the CrossFit Community celebrates its members.
