LEAST FAVORITE WOD:
Anything with pistols.
SPORTS & FITNESS BACKGROUND:
I come from a very sport-centered family. Growing up, I was constantly involved
in team sports like football, baseball, soccer, hockey, and basketball. I played
football for my high school and was a part of a state championship team during
my sophomore year. I've also played intramural volleyball and softball while at
Stockton. I've always been very passionate about sports and hope to become a
coach or CrossFit trainer one day.
WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES/INTERESTS?
I've always been very passionate about sports and athletics. Not only do I want to
become a Sports Physical Therapist, I'd like to also become a coach and/or trainer
on top of that. I've learned a lot about athletics during the course of my life and
would like to help cultivate the next generation of athletes. Becoming a coach is a
likely for me during my gap year (or years) before beginning PT school.
HOW DID YOU FIRST GET EXPOSED TO CROSSFIT? Take us back to your first WOD.... what was it, anyhow did it feel?
I joined CrossFit in the beginning of 2013 immediately after my senior year of
high-school football. My first CrossFit WOD was some sort of Deadlift followed
by Fran, which I did at CrossFit Mount Laurel. That workout was the most brutal
thing I've done in my life; worse than any conditioning I've ever done for
football. My thrusters were scaled down and were the most uncoordinated thing
you'd ever see. I used just about every resistance band they had for the pull-ups.
I'm pretty sure the workout took me over 15 minutes and I may or may not have
skipped school the next day because I was so sore. My first WOD was an
incredibly humbling experience, to say the least.
