Congrats Gina on being our June Athlete of the Month

1. How did you get started with CrossFit:

I love working out. It is my stress relief and something I look forward to daily. I got to

the point that I needed something more from my workouts and had been seeing more and more posts about CF. So I asked

a few friends if they thought I could do it and what their experiences were. I was hesitant and honestly never expected that I would

love it. But I was hooked from day 1.

2. Favorite Wod and or Movement:

MURPH. It was awesome.

3. Least favorite Wod or Movement:

Anything with wall balls and assault bike. End of story.

4. Long term and short term goal:

My short term goals are connected toes to the bar and a strict pullup.

Long term: I would love to back squat 200# and be able to string together HSPUs.

5. What would you tell someone that is on the fence about Crossfit and not sure whether to try it out or not?

Don’t hesitate. Give it a few weeks, you have nothing to lose. CF is one of the hardest and best things I have done for myself.

I think I may be stronger (physically and mentally) now than I ever have been in my life. Don’t let fear hold you back.

The CrossFit community is an outstanding one.

6. What is your proudest accomplishment thus far?

I have had several accomplishments in the past few months and had several PR’s (one of the joys of being new..

can only get better!!). I think that what makes me the most proud is the change in the way I approach the workout.

I used to walk in and think “I can’t. There is no way.” I was out of town for 16.5 and almost didn’t come in on the

Monday to complete it. It would have been easier. But I showed up and completed it.

And that was a game changer for me. Something clicked.

I come into workouts now looking to see what I can do and how I can improve.

7. If you could have dinner with three people, any lifetime, who would it be and why?

his changes all the time.. but today it would be:

My Grandpa: I never had the chance to meet him. Would love to know more about him and hear his words of wisdom.

MLK, Jr.: Would be interesting to hear his inner thoughts and perspective on the world as it is now, compared to his vision.

My Daughter: She is so much smarter than me most days and her perspective keeps me grounded.

8. What do you love most about CrossFit 317:

The people. The atmosphere. The encouragement. From day 1 this place welcomed my daughter and I. Can’t imagine finding a

better place!

9. What is your favorite quote and or/ that you live by?

“It’s impossible,” said pride. “It’s risky,” said experience. “It’s pointless,” said reason. “Give it a try,” whispered the HEART.
