What’s Your Athletic/Fitness Background? 

I have always been active and made physical fitness a priority. Prior to joining CFBF in February of 2015 I was really into running. I logged many training runs with Brad (where he frequently talked about CrossFit). My favorite race length was a 5k and I was fairly competitive in the local races.

Why Did You Join CFBF?

I was really intimidated to try CrossFit. Once I finally started, I was immediately hooked. My knee was bothering me running and CrossFit was a new challenge. I really like competing with myself. CrossFit is a great place for this.

Most Memorable WOD?

There have been a lot of memorable WODs. I really enjoy the Hero WODs. They are challenging and it feels good knowing you are doing them in honor of someone who has served our country.

Favorite CrossFit Movement?

Burpees

Biggest Challenge?

Snatches

Biggest Improvement?   

Pull ups

Who is Your Superhero?

All of the athletes at CFBF that push me each and every WOD.

Fun Fact about Yourself?

A couple years ago I came in 2nd place in the Seacoast Road Race Series. But more importantly I’m pretty good at making drinks.

What Most Special About CFBF?

I’ve been a member for 2 years and love it!  The coaches are amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable and know what is going on with each member. I have always loved the positive atmosphere at CFBF and it really feels like a second family.
