Where did you grow up?
Born in AZ, lived in Arkansas for a few years and back to AZ for high school, Tennessee for College, then Germany for ball and back HOME to AZ! And I don’t plan to leave!
What are your hobbies (besides CrossFit)?
Changing diapers, dropping kids off at school, running to and from kids activities! JK I love being a MOM. Is that considered a Hobby?
What is your occupation?
I love my job! I was previously a 3rd grade teacher. I left teaching after my son Drayden was born. So I truly consider myself a Stay at home Mom for my job… but AJ and I also do marketing from home for a wellness based shopping club.
How were you first introduced to CrossFit?
My hubby talked me into coming to Blade after he had been a Blade member for almost 2 years. I basically just got sick of him coming home and talking about WODS, RX’ing and PRs and all sorts of weird stuff! It was either be annoyed by all this weird talk, or join the party! And I am SOOO happy I did!
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
(I honestly couldn’t name a single WOD) So my favorite movement… Cleans or Pull-ups
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
Basically ANY Heavy lifting… ask anyone who partners with me. I hate heavy weight!!! But my least favorite would probably be SQUATS and I don’t discriminate…Front, Back, and Overhead are all terrible! Oh and Thrusters too.. because they are basically a front squat on steroids!
What CrossFit accomplishment are you most proud of?
Being able to do a Bar Muscle Up…I really should work on them and learn to string them together!
What is your favorite song to WOD to?
Thats tough, I wouldn’t say I have a favorite. But Music in general is a MUST… some songs make me want to dance in the middle of the workouts, you might even catch me singing mid WOD and I like when songs have a fast beat. I like to use the beat to keep my pace when doing things like box jumps or burpees!
What would you like to accomplish next through CrossFit?
Hmm… maybe a RING MUSCLE UP??? But I know that won’t just happen out of no where.. I would actually need to put in the extra work. And that doesn’t usually happen!
