When did you first start CrossFit? I started CrossFit in 2018.
Tell us about your sports & fitness background.
I played soccer for 15 years. But was always in the gym since I was 7.
How did you first get into CrossFit? How did it go?
I was invited by my mom, I wasn’t too sure in the beginning, but afterwards I realized how hard the WODs can be and I love challenges so I continued. Then I got into competitions and fell in love with the sport.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit?
Since I have started CrossFit 3 years ago, I have noticed I dropped over 10lbs, gained a lot of muscle, and my energy level is back up!
What impact has CrossFit had on your life?
CrossFit has had a huge impact! It has taught me how to work hard for something, how to be patient, and helped me become the person who I want to be in life.
What is your advice for people getting started or thinking about starting CrossFit?
You should definitely take it slow, listen to the coaches, and recover! Recovery is just as important as working out. Thinking about it? I highly recommend it! CrossFit is made for anyone, doesn’t matter your weight or age. Not only will you meet your fitness goals, you will make such great friends through it.
What are your hobbies, interests, and other talents outside of CrossFit? Outside of CrossFit I love taking my two dogs (Sam and Bear) on hikes. Cooking new things and just going out with friends
What’s the wallpaper of your phone?
My wallpaper on my phone is the quote “Each day is an opportunity to improve yourself. Take it. And make the most of it,” something I love to live by not only for fitness, but for work and being the better version of myself every day.
