Hello! My name is Erin Johnson, and I was born and raised in Haubstadt. Haubstadt is a small town in southern Indiana best known for our annual Sommerfest, and even more importantly we have been named the Busch Light Capital of the World (seriously, Google it). I currently live in Avon, IN with my husband of 1 ½ years, A.J. We have been together for 7 years and are high school sweethearts. We currently only have fur children, our cat Chloe and dog Oliver. I’ve been involved in sports all of my life. I’ve played soccer, basketball, track, softball, and volleyball.When I got to high school, I focused on volleyball and softball. Sports have always been a big part of my life, and I don’t plan on quitting anytime soon
A.J. was doing the kick-off class last August, and he told me I should come in and try it. I was a little leary about it, but I was getting burnt out on doing Insanity and running wasn’t keeping my interest. After my first class, I was hooked. I signed up for a membership the next day.
My first WOD included kettlebell swings, ring dips, and running…I couldn’t get the 35lb kettlebell above my head and my banded ring dips were quite a site.
My first WOD at 317 was in August 2013
CrossFit 317 is my first and only affiliate I’ve been a member of. I’ve been doing it for a little over a year now.
When I couldn’t swing that 35lb kettlebell…I knew I was going to come back for more. I was bound and determined to get that thing up.
My short-term goals:
Stringing muscle-ups together, working on my form, and getting heavier in my lifts
My long-term goal:
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is number one. I would love to be able to compete in Regionals with a team, but I’m not sure how realistic that is. I’ll settle for being competitive in local competitions.
In CrossFit: getting my first muscle-up
In life: Having wonderful family and friends by my side
Least Favorite WOD:
Open 13.3: 150 wallballs, 90 DUs, 30 MU
short people and wallballs are not a good mix
Clean and Jerk/Overhead Squats
Least Favorite Movement:
I am an Interventional Radiologic Technologist working in the Cardiac Cath Lab and Interventional Radiology. My main role is to assist cardiologists during heart caths where we use balloons/stents to open blockages in heart arteries.
