CFBF Athlete of the Month (April) – Lillie Hua

What’s Your Athletic/Fitness Background?   

Not much. I was a pretty inactive kid growing up. I played a little bit of softball as a youth. Some tennis and sprinting in high school intermittently, and free group exercise classes in college. In 2015, I accidentally signed up for and ran two half marathons 4 weeks apart through my company’s running club so there’s that too. I still hate running to this day, though.

Why Did You Join CFBF?

I was going to “shop around” but then I had my first one-on-one with Addie. After that, I was sold on the box. She’s still the most impressive athlete/coach I know, and it’s inspiring on so many levels.

Most Memorable WOD?

I’m so bad at remembering WODs. However I had a lot of fun last summer during a Saturday team WOD where there was a snake involved and we all squatted it.

Favorite CrossFit Movement? 

Definitely the clean! Or the back squat…basically anything with a barbell is my jam.

Biggest Challenge? 

Anything gym-nasty! Sigh. Working on it though!!

Biggest Improvement?    

Double unders, for sure!

Who is Your Superhero?

My mom! She’s awesome and somehow survived raising me.

Fun Fact about Yourself?

I have 8 siblings.

What’s Most Special About CFBF?

The community! I’ve made so many friends who are all around amazing and supportive.

Any Advice for New Members?

Just keep coming back! Life will get busy and you might not feel like you’re up for the workout but you’ll be so amazed at what you can do if you just stick with it and stay consistent.
