THIS PLACE WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE
Athlete of the Month:
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.
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.
