Athlete of the Month:

Erin Fergusson

erin

This month we are highlighting one of our most dedicated athletes, Erin Fergusson!  She loves lifting heavy, so eat your Wheaties before her special WOD comes up!  Here’s a little more about our Erin, our awesome Athlete of the Month:
How long have you been CrossFitting?

3 years! I started at the Black Box in NYC, but I love SMC so much more!!! The people and the coaches have been amazing. I have made huge progress since I have been with you guys.

What is your favorite WOD/Movement?
Lifting all the heavy things, but my favorite lifts are power cleans, snatches and overhead squats. I like heavy kettle bell swings and a good hard row, too.

Least Favorite?
Box jumps and burpees. I feel like a whale flopping around :).  

What is your favorite cheat meal?I have a horrible sweet tooth, so my ideal cheat meal would consist of a giant bag of gummy bears with a side of ice cream with allll the caramel sauce.

What do you do for fun?  I love to travel adventurously – I have been to Africa and pet lions, Iceland and climbed on glaciers, Peru and trekked to Machu Picchu, watched lava flow down volcanoes in Hawaii and more – I am excited to go to Nepal in October for a 2 week trek! I love to ski and snowboard, ride my bike, and I play tennis at least once a week. I am a pretty good cook, and try to be the best aunt ever to my little nephew, Cooper. I grew up as a trained dancer, so I still like to bust a move every now and then.

is your favorite CrossFit memory?
That time I hit my 130# snatch PR and everyone cheered! But I also loved our Thanksgiving WOD with the kettle bell turkeys – it was such a fun team workout and I felt like a part of a family.

Best Advice for CrossFit newbies?

1. Know that only special unicorns are good at ALL of the movements. There will always be something you struggle with, and that is ok.
2. Don’t compare yourself with other people – only compare what you have done in the past to what you can do today. You will see amazing progress!!
3. Ask your coaches and friends for help!! Jess Frey taught me how to rope climb, Elena taught me how to do a headstand, Coach Foley taught me how to make my double-unders more efficient, Coach Contino fixed my split jerks….everyone around you is a resource.
