Tell us about your sports & fitness background?
I have no background in sports. I have never been involved in any athletic event. I was a member at a gym as an adult. However, I never used the weight room.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD…what was it, and how did it feel?
I don’t remember my first wod exactly, but I remember what I felt like. I was so intimidated at first, even to walk in. It left me worn out but so challenged. I fell in love with the community!

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit?
I have gained so much strength! My overall confidence in what I can accomplish has grown. I have gained knowledge that will help me maintain a healthy lifestyle.

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
I was not expecting to find a new family. I just wanted a good workout, but CrossFit gives you so much more. Some of the best people I have ever met have been the athletes working out next to me.

Any advice for people just getting started?
