What made you decide to try CrossFit?
I had heard that it was challenging and at the time wanted to see if it was something I was capable of doing!
What is your favorite part about Empowered Living Company?
Having an opportunity to learn new movements, and seeing those new movements become standard. Anyone else remember thinking there was no way you could to a handstand? Now some of my favorite workouts have handstand holds! There are always challenges, and before that was intimidating. Now it is exciting to see what new thing I will get to try!
What’s your favorite movement, lift or workout?
I love powercleans. Not sure there is anything more empowering then maxing out on a power clean!
What’s one milestone you’re most proud of so far?
Participating in the open. My first year I just sat back and watched and had no interest in it at all. Participating this last year was a great experience.
What are some unexpected benefits you’ve experienced since starting?
Finding a community at the gym is one thing I didn’t expect to happen. The other would be the mental strength that came from attending crossfit.
What is your next goal you plan to crush?
I WILL get the gymnastics movements (toe to bar, kip pullups, and chest to bar).
What advice would you give someone walking through the Empowered Living Company door for the first time?
It is you against you! The benefit here is you will have an entire community cheering you on and being excited with you for every PR you hit, no matter how big or small.
