“…CrossFit has shown me that I am capable of more than I ever thought.”
We speak with Amanda Hutson this week for Member Monday. Amanda started with us through our spring 2016 New You Challenge. Read on to get to know Amanda and how CrossFit 317 is playing a role in her life.
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“I feel that since I’ve started doing crossfit at 317, I’ve gained more confidence in myself and what I can do, that confidence has definitely followed me outside the gym. I have also participated in my first 5K and mud run recently, both things that I never even dreamed I would be doing, but CrossFit has shown me that I am capable of more than I ever thought.”
Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“One memory that sticks out for me was during the Murph challenge and I was with one of the other New You members, Deb 2. During the last part of the run, I was exhausted, tied, and feeling nauseous. Deb was so encouraging and helped me push through the last part of the run.”
What’s your favorite movement in CrossFit?
“My favorite move would have to be any type of weightlifting. Although, my form is not 100 percent yet, it’s my favorite part of the workouts.”
If asked to sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?
“I wouldn’t be able to sum up CrossFit 317 it would be with two words, life changing.”
What do you love to do in your free time?
“In my free time I like to read, just hang out with my family and my son and just enjoy life.”
