How long have you been Crossfitting? About 3 years.

Favorite or Best Crossfit Movement: Squats, running, and socializing.

What are you most passionate about in life? Providing support, advocacy, and assistance to the underprivileged, disadvantaged youth population. Bringing awareness to the vast inequalities that some of our adolescent population faces.

What is your favorite thing about CrossFit Southie? The people that I have met and friends that I have made. I never thought that some of my closest friends would be those that I met at a gym!

Words of encouragement to new CrossFitters: Alwaysย acknowledge and celebrate your accomplishments. It is hard not to get wrapped up in wanting to see and experience immediate success, gains, and improvements. Keep track of your workouts, numbers, and goals. You will look back and see how much you have accomplished and that will be a huge aid in fueling your fire, and continuing to challenge yourself.
