When did you start at Crossfit Southie?

learning how to do kipping pull-ups
What are your Fitness Goals?
Get strong AF! And master the snatch
What is your Favorite Part of Crossfit?
Pushing my body to do things I never thought I was capable of and feeling the sense of accomplishment after finishing a crazy WOD or heavy lift.
How did you get involved in CrossFit and what was your first WOD/experience?
I’d been lifting and strength training on my own for a couple years and decided I wanted to find something where I could meet people who enjoyed working out as much as I did. I was really nervous to go to CrossFit for the first time, but it’s the best decision I’ve made! My first WOD included toes to bar and double unders; I couldn’t do either, but did my best to push myself.
What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit?
I love doing anything active and outdoors; hiking, boating, paddle boarding, going to the beach, etc., and spending time with my new puppy!
What’s a “Fun Fact” about you?
I’m obsessed with Cheetos, the crunchy and puffy ones
