How did you get exposed to CrossFit?
When I moved back to Atlanta, I was looking for gyms in Midtown and decided to give Crossfit Midtown a try.
I wanted a workout that I didn’t have to make, wasn’t time consuming, and gave me the intensity I was looking for.
I did the foundations class and Crossfit Midtown turned out to be exactly what I was looking for.
What brought you to CrossFit Midtown?
What was your very first day at CrossFit Midtown like?
It is all kind of a blur to be honest. I remember Crossfit being the type of workout I wanted (challenging!) And I loved that the members and coaches were nice and helpful- I definitely had a lot of questions in the beginning.
What changes have you seen in your overall health and fitness level since starting CrossFit?
I feel better and healthier- my cardio has seen the most improvement but I still have a way to go in that category haha!
What kind of changes have you experienced since starting CrossFit that were completely unexpected?
Definitely new friends and the community- that’s the part I enjoy the most.
My favorite workouts are partner WOD’s because it pushes me to workout out harder
Another unexpected change I have learned is how Crossfit can humble you in one hour or less! Some days, the WOD is right up my alley and other days….it’s not!
But that’s what makes it fun for me- constantly varied and always sweaty!
Least favorite WOD
Anything with Burpees!
Favorite CrossFit Midtown moment
I don’t have one favorite one (there’s a lot to choose from!) but I really enjoyed the Memorial Day Murph Workout.
Hobbies, Talents and or Interests Outside of CrossFit:
Work takes up a lot of my time during the week but I love to garden and work in the yard on the weekends!
Advice for new CrossFitters
Come to class consistently-
I have seen the biggest improvements in my Crossfit abilities when I am able to go to class on a regular basis.
