Athlete of the Month

IMG_1151.JPG

 

This month we are highlighting one of our favorite gingers, Amy!! You can almost always find in suite 400 working on her Oly lifts or staying late after class to work on her skills. Sometimes you may even catch her handing out shots of fireball! She’s a spicy little athlete, and she brings her smile and drive to every workout (especially when she wants to beat Coach Pete!) Here’s a little more about one of our most dedicated athletes:
How long have you been CrossFitting?
A little over 2 years

What is your favorite WOD/Movement?
My favorite movements are any of the body weight movements like pull-ups, pushups, air squats, and box jumps.

Least Favorite?
Least favorite movements are deadlifts and thrusters

What is your favorite CrossFit memory?
I have two favorite memories! My first favorite was my first CF open experience. I had only been doing Crossfit for a few months, and I had no idea what my strengths and weaknesses were. I was initially terrified, but I soon realized that I had nothing to lose and that everyone was in the same boat. I gave it my all and realized that I could push myself harder than I had expected. It was fun to try new movements, lift heavy weights, and experiment a little. It was also amazing to see so many athletes come together as a family and encourage one another. The atmosphere was totally inspiring, and I knew that South Mountain was a place that I wanted to stay at. My second favorite was my first ring MU!

Best Advice for CrossFit newbies?
My best advice: Even though its hard to do, don’t worry about what other people are doing. Everyone has their own journey, whether it be about better health, bigger lifts, increased endurance, or just getting a workout in. The journey is about YOU. You make it your own. All of the hard work and struggle will pay off. Also, don’t get discouraged. This stuff is hard and nothing comes overnight. Be persistent, be brave, and be a little crazy. It’s good to get out of your comfort zone and into that “dark place.” It’s there that the magic happens and you understand how hard you can push yourself. Be proud of your accomplishments and your progress. Trust the process and believe in your abilities!
