Please join us in congratulating our Newest Spotlight Member Sam Bosch! Sam recently began her Crossfit Journey with our Fundamentals Course and has been crushing it ever since! She has such a positive attitude, which spreads to those around her in class. Sam is so hardworking and coachable, always taking in any feedback with a smile! We had a few questions for Sam to get to know her even better. You can check out her answers below! Keep up the great work Sam, you set an amazing example for us!
Name: Sam Bösch (yes, with umlauts!)
Profession: Sr. Business Consultant at Liberty Mutual
Member Since: Sept. 2018
Favorite movement or WOD: Recently I joked it’s :30 secs rest, but in all seriousness I’m always excited to see Partner WODs & box jumps. Being new to Crossfit, I also look forward to high skill gymnastics so I can practice and improve.
Least favorite movement: EASILY thrusters
Class You Frequent: Tues/Thurs 6:30pm, Sat 10:30am
Biggest Accomplishment: 75# 2-second back squats, gotta start somewhere!
Fitness Goal: Pistols and pushups
My Favorite Part of Crossfit: True to everyone’s answers, the coaches and community at CFS are incomparable to any other fitness facility. Daniela, Goose, Haley, and Dale take their time during class to personalize feedback and help scale the workouts for my capabilities (something I’ve heard is not as seamless at other boxes). The camaraderie is why I come back. As an avid class hopper, CFS is the first and only place where members offer to drive me home, even if it puts them a few minutes out of their way. Can’t say enough great things about the people I’ve met in this short amount of time.
Why You Started Crossfit: My sister in CA inspired me. With two open heart surgeries and a pace maker by age 31, ‘traditional exercise’ was never in the cards for her. She found Crossfit and fell in love with the community since it provided a safe environment where she could scale workouts for her heart. Being competitive and wanting to build strength, I had to give it a try. My CFS Intro class with Haley was my least favorite class that I’ve ever taken (she introduced me to thrusters, thanks Haley!). She asked how it went, and I told her it was everything I hated but wanted to be good at. I immediately signed up for September Fundamentals and the rest is history!
