Athlete of the Month (December) – Aishling Falzone

Please join us in congratulating Aishling Falzone on being named our December Athlete of the Month!  Aishling has made a ton of progress over the past 2.5 years while working full-time, raising a family, training through a pregnancy, recovering from a C-section, and suffering a foot injury!  She doesn’t give up and we couldn’t be more proud to recognize her efforts this month!

CFBF Athlete of the Month (December) – Aishling Falzone

What’s Your Athletic/Fitness Background?

I played multiple sports in high school (ah, the Glory Days. . .) and skied competitively after college, but exercise took a back seat to other commitments when I was in my late twenties.

Why Did You Join CFBF?

I liked the idea of CrossFit because it incorporated so many different aspects of fitness. I also really liked the idea of having accountability during a workout. When I visited CFBF for a trial session, I found it to be a very welcoming place. There was no judgment about where I was fitness-wise, but instead a desire to know how CFBF could help support me in reaching whatever goals I set for myself.

Most Memorable WOD?

I was still a relatively new member (maybe three weeks in) when I showed up at a 5 AM on a particularly snowy morning to find “Filthy Fifty” written on the whiteboard. Not having any knowledge of what the WOD entailed, I waited for other members to roll in. At 5:04 AM, I realized I was the only one who was going to be there. Just me. And the coach. And the Filthy Fifty. For those of you familiar with the Filthy Fifty, you know that this is not necessarily a time when you want the undivided attention of your coach.

Favorite CrossFit Movement?

Strict Press or Front Squat

Biggest Challenge?

Any and all gymnastics movements.

Biggest Improvement?

Rope Climbs

Who is Your Superhero?

Without question, my mom. She is the most selfless person I know. 

Fun Fact about Yourself?

I am a ridiculously good backward roller skater.

What Most Special About CFBF?

Definitely, the relationships you build with your coaches and the other members. It’s not easy to set that alarm for 4:00 am to get up to face a 5 AM WOD, but at CFBF you are not just some unknown person who plugs along on an adjacent treadmill. If I don’t make it to a class, I have fellow members checking in with me to see where I was and when I will be back.

Any Advice for New Members?

When you are new, some of the movements and even the terminology can seem intimidating at first, but just keep showing up. The coaches will meet you wherever you are fitness-wise and help you work with any physical limitations you have. I was able to attend CFBF throughout an entire pregnancy (during which I achieved some PRs), the coaches helped me work my way back after a C-section, and they modified workouts so I could keep coming when I tore a ligament in my foot. I am still working to improve many of the movements, but each day that I show up, I am better than I was the day before.  Also, find a class time that works for you and stick with it. You will be rewarded with an amazing community of people who support and challenge each other during each WOD. Shout out to the 5 AM Crew here — they are the bomb!
