My name is Jessica Heckman and I am 29 years old. I grew up in Spencer, Indiana. I participated in various sports growing up. I attended Indiana University and graduated with a degree in Early Childhood Education. My husband, Corby, and I have been married since 2006. We have lived in Brownsburg since 2008.
A co-worker and friend of my husband introduced us to Crossfit in 2011. I completed my first WOD in his garage and loved it.
My first WOD was 3 rounds of 200m run, 9-12-15 of ring rows, pushups, and air squats
I started coming to Crossfit 317 in November of 2012.
This is the first Crossfit affiliate I have worked out at. I did train with a level 1 certified trainer for a year before attending Crossfit 317. I have been doing Crossfit for 2 years.
I first realized Crossfit was for me after I completed the first WOD. The WOD’s are rapid, intense, and offer a competitive outlet. Then after attending Crossfit 317 I realized that I also enjoy working out in a group and the community feeling associated with the box.
Short-term: Continue to improve the movements that make up my goat list, which currently includes: kipping pull-ups, toes-to-bar, handstand pushups, rowing, and ring dips.
Long-term: Improve strength and be able to do all workouts as prescribed.
My biggest Crossfit accomplishment was this past weekend when I competed in my first competition.
