How You Found CrossFit and/or Why You CrossFit: I was looking at Facebook and saw the New You program saw what was it about and decided to go in person and check it out. When I walked in I meet Shawn, walked in and saw nothing but ladies lifting and box jumping and doing pull ups and I was like OMG WHAT IS THIS! I will probably die hand me a pen I want to do this.
I do CrossFit because I enjoy the challenge….and every workout for me is a challenge. In my head I’m nervous but I end up doing it and finishing the workout. I also do it because I want to be stronger and not sit on my couch and do nothing, I want to hang out with positive people and burn some stress.
Favorite Workout(s) and Why: Partner WoDs because you get to work as a team, meet new people, and cheer them on .
