1. What got you into CrossFit?

– I had just turned 40, I was playing Lacrosse, working out, and running, but with 3 kids and a crazy job, I was finding it harder and harder to get to the gym, and when I did, I was bored and found myself finding excuses not to do it. I also really had difficult time with getting any gains with traditional weights and workouts. I had heard about CrossFit, and wanted to give it a shot. I attended an intro class with Chad and survived. So I kept coming back. After about a week, my whole body was in pain, but I could not wait to go the next day, so I was hooked. Also, the people I met and the coaches I worked with at Grassfed are great, and I immediately felt at home. That was about 3 years ago. I have found an outlet where I can go and put all my energy and focus into something that continually challenges me. The more work I put in, the more it gives back, in just about an hour a day. I think I have been searching for something like this for years!

2. What is/are the biggest changes you’ve noticed?
 – Better to ask what hasn’t changed… I have gained about 15 pounds since joining, but my body fat has gone way down. My energy levels are at an all-time high. My strength and endurance have improved tremendously. It has improved my self-esteem as well.

3. What do you enjoy most about CrossFit?
 – There are many things, but I think it is the variation is what I most enjoy. Every day, something new…Rope Climbs, Olympic Lifts, Box Jumps, Handstand Pushups, etc.. The different movements, combinations, and repetitions provide so many different possible workouts that you are never bored. I also think that the programming at Grassfed is a bit different. I believe that Chad and the coaches really think about the warmups, strength and WODs and make sure that there is a plan. Being able to hit a strength or WOD 6 months or a year after the last time you did it, and seeing the improvement just shows that CrossFit does work. And then, even when you do improve, you know that you can do even better next time.


4. What do you find the biggest challenge to be?
– Biggest challenge is to not be able to do all movements and weights. Muscle Ups, Double-Unders, Handstand walks, to name a few. When I see them on the WOD, it is disheartening, but I will continue to work on the “goats”. Hopefully I will be able to get them.

5. What would you say is your favorite movement and why?
– Favorite moments are always when the group just rallies around someone and encourages them to finish, and when that someone is appreciative of your support. The PRs and improvements are great, but those moments are the best.

6. What would you say to someone who was hesitant to try CrossFit?
– There is no reason to hesitate. There are so many scaling options and modifications that anyone can do it. You just need to understand your limits and start slow. CrossFit is definitely not something that you “dive into the deep end” right away, but I believe there is a place for everyone!

7. What challenges lie ahead that you’re most excited about?
– I am excited to see where I can be in another year and the challenge to just continuing to improve in all areas.

Specific Challenges – Rx+’ing Special Meal (if you don’t know what the Special Meal WOD is then you need to try it once) and Deadlifting 500# (at 455 right now).. those are two of the bucket list items

8. What’s your ideal workout?
– Anytime that we do one of the “girls” or the “heroes” is fun because they are universally known, and usually challenge your body. We just finished “Karen”, she wasn’t so fun..

My ideal workout would be one that combines moderate to heavy weights of some barbell movement (clean, deadlift, thruster, squat) with a gymnastic movement (C2B, pullup, etc.). I like workouts that have a definite rep scheme (21-15-9 for example) as it challenges you to complete the same amount of work as a group as opposed to AMRAPs. I do not excel in cardio…lol…I don’t mind a 400m run/500m row mixed in, or maybe 10 burpees/some jumprope, etc.. but when you see 5K row in the WOD, I would not consider that my “ideal” workout.

 9. Anything you would like to add/say?
– Just very thankful to have found Grassfed and the friends that I have made here. Its great to see so many different people from so many backgrounds all in the same place encouraging each other…definitely something to be said about that. Not sure if all Boxes are like this, but I doubt it. It’s a special place!

As Chad says.. “Enough talk.. Time to Dominate!!!”

    Annie looks like the updated map is not 100% correct. I am going to look for a newer version or maybe fix this one myself.As far as your seats I took two photos. The best view you will have is shown in this photo:The seat closer to the outside (41) has a view that is a bit more obstructed.
