Evelyn – Staying In the Moment

Member Spotlight
Please join us in congratulating our newest Member Spotlight Evelyn Taveras! Evelyn started her Crossfit journey with us last May and has been showing amazing progress ever since. She is very coach-able, is always willing to give any movement and challenge in class a shot and her progress shows that! Her work ethic will no doubt fuel the path to any goals she has in and outside of the gym!
Evelyn has taken on our team nutrition challenge this winter and has become more involved in Southie social events like the Ski Trip 🙂 We’re so happy to have her here and representing The CFS community! Check out our interview below to learn more about her!
Name: Evelyn Taveras
Profession: Controls and Instrumentation Engineer
Member Since: May, 2018
Favorite movement or WOD: I am still getting to know the WODs, but any of the dynamic barbell movements I enjoy, recently I have been getting the hang of clean and jerks and loving it.
Class You Frequent: Southie Orange, 6:30PM class
Biggest Accomplishment: I finally got Dubs!!! (just 5x, but working on getting more consecutive ones)
Fitness Goal: Overall I just want to live a healthy lifestyle and be and stay in shape. I also would like to get unassisted chin over bar pull-ups eventually in the somewhat near future 🙂
My Favorite Part of Crossfit: The coaches are great and always give me that extra push and great feedback.
Why You Started Crossfit: I needed to induce a change in my life’s health journey, and a friend finally convinced me to give Crossfit a try and I have no regrets! 🙂
