LEAST FAVORITE WOD:
Anything with Thrusters, Push Jerks, Presses
SPORTS & FITNESS BACKGROUND:
I did gymnastics and soccer in middle school. I was on the volleyball team and softball team in high school. I was always relatively in decent shape, until the later end of college and grad school where there was a lot of sitting and studying. When I graduated chiropractic college I just didn't feel like I was fit anymore, I felt like I had a lot of work to do to get back to where I wanted to be. I wanted to be competitive and able to lead a fit lifestyle.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES/INTERESTS?
I love day/weekend trips to nearby cities with my fiancé. Recently, I've been going to Executive Command seminars where I learn how to communicate with different personalities and how to run a successful business. I can't wait to invest in businesses outside of chiropractic. Also in the past 3 years, it's been a pleasure to be apart of all my friends wedding parties and watching them marry the love of their lives!
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET EXPOSED TO CROSSFIT? Take us back to your first WOD.... what was it, anyhow did it feel?
I started working as a chiropractic functional movement specialist and I needed to understand movement/exercise/nutrition and how I can help my patients. I started CrossFit in hopes of just getting in shape. I remember my first week of doing CrossFit, I felt out of my element because I was never a part of a weight lifting program and I had never done most of the movements. I remember feeling this burning sensation within 2-3 minutes of every workout - it sucked - I hated that I had no endurance or stamina!
