When did you first hear about CrossFIt and what was you first experience like?
Honestly not sure when I 1st heard of crossfit?? My 1st experience was awesome it was my consultation here with Scott Reynolds ! I was so nervous I had my husband come with me lol
What is your favorite thing about CrossFit Cameron Park?
Absolutely without a doubt the people. Starts with the owners Scott and Megan Reynolds and pours down through every coach and every member.
Don't get me wrong the workouts are amazing! The fitness knowledge I've gained and the results I see in my body are amazing but the people are the best!
You had a knee injury and surgery can you tell us about that experience?
I tore my ACL in a Spartan Race jumping off a wall. The terrain was bad, my right knee just went right and I went down. Finished, ran 1 more, then surgery. I believe if not for crossfit the injury would of been worse as well as recovery.
You kept coming to the gym throughout your recovery and physical therapy, do you think that helped?
Without a doubt. Not just for surgery recovery but mentally.
Has CrossFIt changed your life, lifestyle, level of fitness?
More than anything I have ever done! I have chronic illnesses that almost put me in the grave 5 years ago. Treatment wasn't much better and put a lot of weight on me. I am more fit now thanks to crossfit than I have ever been in my life. My eating is the cleanest its ever been and I look forward to dialing that in even more. I just feel good!
