“…it’s positive and encouraging.”
We wrap up 2016 with one more interview from one of our youngest members of our traditional CrossFit classes, Grace Kaufmann. Working her way up through the ranks of our various youth fitness programs, Grace now holds her own in classes with adults.
What were your first impressions upon joining CrossFit 317?
“When I first joined CrossFit I wasn’t sure about how I would like it or even if I would like it but I wanted to try it out. Turns out I thought it was so fun and it also was a challenge for me so I continued in the kids’ class and did some teen classes over the summer then took the intro classes and now I am in the adult class, having fun every day.”
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“CrossFit has been amazing for me, I really feel like I can look forward to going to CrossFit after school.”
Do you have a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“Yes. So it was my friend Ella’s birthday and for warm-up if its some one’s birthday we usually do like that many jumping jacks but not for Ella, we did so many different moments: 12 for each movement. I was like noo because my B-day was coming up soon and I did not want to have to do that all over again.”
What’s your favorite part of CrossFit?
“I really enjoy the community and the environment; it’s positive and encouraging.”
If asked to sum up 317 in one word or phrase, what would it be?
“Don’t worry about what other people are doing be yourself try hard and workout.”
Outside of the gym, what activities and hobbies do you enjoy?
“I like doing crafts a lot, playing with my three dogs and cooking.”
