I am…probably overthinking this because I am so surprised to be chosen for this.

I like…learning new things, watching Netflix and reading a good book.

I dislike… well…I am not going to tell you because in my experience it usually results in my dislikes being used against me.

I eat…what I want as long as Mitch approves.

I will…be going back to school within the next couple of months, which I am absolutely terrified and excited for.

Tell us a little bit about yourself, hobbies, occupation, etc…
I recently graduated from UD and while I have been trying to figure out the next step in my life, I have been working in a lab doing chemical testing.

What brought you to Centerville Crossfit and CrossFit in general?
I had been interested in starting crossfit for a few years but was never brave enough to start. So my mom found an advertisement for the New You Challenge – which I had no desire to join – but my mom wanted to give it a chance and I joined it with her so she would not have to do it alone. Needless to say, I am hooked and have not looked back.

What goals have you achieved? What are your new ones?
I didn’t know I had a goal of doing a handstand, until Spencer made me try it one class – now all I want to do is do handstands.
My current goals are to be able to do a strict pull-up and gain more confidence in overhead movements.

What is your favorite movement?
The clean – for sure, but I also like a lot of the weightlifting movements.

What is your least favorite movement?
Anything I am not good at, but particularly BURPEES. I am not graceful enough to fling myself onto the ground and get back up again quickly – though I am getting better.

What is your favorite quote or words to live by?
I don’t really have a favorite quote or words to live by, but I hear this very frequently — Consistency is key.

Do you have any advice to new members or someone thinking about joining?
Just do it, you will not regret it.

What do you love about Centerville CrossFit?
I love the community and the support system that is found at Centerville Crossfit. Everyone wants each other to succeed and they push you to reach your fullest potential and go further.
