How You Found CrossFit and/or Why You CrossFit:
I moved to Oxnard at the end of last year and knew I loved aspects of CF from my previous trainer incorporating some of it in her gym and I knew I liked to be challenged and stretched to dig deeper and so I called and showed up to an intro class and found a fitness community I actually fit in with and here I am 10 months later stronger both mentally and physically 💪🏻
Favorite Workout(s) and Why:
I have no idea. All the ones without running 😂
Favorite Movement(s) and Why:
Rowing, wall balls, box jumps, power cleans.
Least Favorite Workout(s) and Why:
Anything with running =\
Least Favorite Movement(s) and Why:
Running because it’s umm… RUNNING! 😱☠️😱
My thoughtfulness. I’m told by many that I’m the most thoughtful sweetest person they’ve ever met. Either they haven’t met many people or … I will let you decide.
Words of Advice For New CrossFitters:
Everyone here has felt the very same way as you do now, unsure and nervous and probably intimidated. Keep showing up and giving everything you have because you are more than worth it! You will get the hang of these movements. Trust our coaches. They give their all for us! You will fall in love with this community/family. Welcome to CF Oxnard!!
