Why are you doing CrossFit?
I'm doing CrossFit to stay healthy and strong. To be able to play with my children and one day, my grandchildren.
What got you started doing CrossFit?
I needed to change up my fitness routine. I was a Zumba/TRX instructor and I had run several 5ks and three marathons. It was time for something different and CrossFit got me hook line and sinker. I couldn't imagine life without it.
Why do you stay with it?
For my physical health and mental sanity.
We all have goals-what are you working towards?
I'm currently working on stringing muscle-ups together as I've been doing singles for a couple years. I also want to own my handstand walk. I'm always working on getting stronger.
