Personal history and journey towards beginning your CrossFit adventure:
I grew up in Mishicot, WI (yes, I went to high school with Brendan Dassey from making a murderer), I am an identical twin, went to St. Norbert College and majored in Communication. I ran track at Saint Norbert College and was a pole vaulter. Met my husband, Mitchell, at SNC and got married on June 11, 2016. I work for an IT staffing company, TEKsystems and have been there since I graduated college. My journey towards CrossFit started when I was sick of programming my own workouts. I was used to showing up to track practice and doing what I was told. I needed that workout structure again. My twin, Brittni, does CrossFit at CrossFit Manitowoc and she got me into trying it. I started in August 2015 and have been here ever since!
What brought you to CrossFit Appleton?:
I failed at holding myself accountable and going to the gym consistently. I needed someone to program my workouts and coaches to push me, because I wasn’t pushing myself as hard as I could.
Your first impression of CrossFit Appleton?:
That the people were so open and friendly.
What has been your biggest hurdle since starting?:
Pushing myself to get outside of my comfort zone. Before CrossFit I never failed at a lift, which I soon realized it was because I was playing it safe.
What is your favorite aspect of CrossFit?:
The life long friends I have made 🙂
What are your current goals in CrossFit?:
Improve my cardio and beat Mitchell in one workout!
What is something we don’t know about you?:
I kicked cancers ass. #thyroidcancercansuckit
