Coach Spotlight – Shelby Hall

 

What’s Your Athletic/Fitness Background?   

I was a non-competitive dancer for 15 years (4 years old until the end of high school) and had played several sports in high school (field hockey, lacrosse, cross country, cheering). I also did two years of high school gymnastics. But I had never been involved in anything that I was 100% focused on. I enjoyed trying everything out.

Why Did You Join CFBF?

Coach Lance told me how amazing the community and coaches were and because it is so close to work I should check it out. He was 100% right!

Most Memorable WOD?

14.5 aka 16.5 aka death by burpees and thrusters… still has a piece of my soul.

Favorite CrossFit Movement?

Handstand walking!

Biggest Challenge? 

Realizing I needed to back down the weight on the bar until I learned to move faster.

Biggest Improvement?    

Diving headfirst into my weaknesses weekly instead of avoiding them.

Who is Your Superhero?

My mom. She taught me my work ethic and has shown me that no matter what life throws at you-you can survive and grow stronger.

What Most Special About CFBF?

The community. Everyone is so welcoming and enjoying their time at CFBF.

Any Advice for New Members?

Don’t let it all overwhelm you. Rome wasn’t built in a day. But each day you can lay down a new stone. I am constantly learning new things and I have been doing this for 4 years.  Ask a TON of questions and always remember to have fun. Remember why you started 🙂
