Where are you from?  

I am from Arlington, MA.

How long have you been a member at Steel Fox and why did you join?

I have been a member since the fall of 2016. I decided to try Crossfit because I was bored with the work outs that I was doing at the time.

What classes do you usually attend?

I go to the 5:30pm class and open gym on the weekends.

What do you like to do outside of Steel Fox?

I do the usual. I spend time with friends and family. I enjoy discovering and listening to music. I also look at my phone way too much!.


What is something we might not know about you?

I have battled anxiety and depression since I was a teenager. I began working out as a way to combat symptoms, and regular exercise has been a huge help.


What is your favorite CrossFit movement?

I don't have a favorite, but right now I'm mildly obsessed with double unders and squat snatches.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

I guess it would be being an okay mom. Luckily, my daughter is just an amazing person so it is easy to be her mom. Knowing I have had just a small part in her happiness and development has brought me more joy than anything else.

What is one long term goal and one short term goal?  

At the gym, my long term goal is to keep getting stronger and staying healthy until that is no longer possible. A short term goal would be to consistently string together toes to bar.

What motivates and inspires you?  

I teach second grade. Because I get to watch my students struggle and learn every day, they inspire me. They look to me as a role model, so I try to be one.

Where are you from?

I’m from Lexington.

How long have you been a member at Steel Fox and why did you join?

I’ve been a member for about a year now. I started with Steel Fit and within about 2 months switched over to Crossfit. I was a college athlete and loved our team workouts. After school, I had gotten bored doing solo workouts at the gym and was looking for a new atmosphere to challenge me to do workouts that I wouldn’t choose to do on my own.

What classes do you usually attend?

I typically attend the 5:30pm crossfit class. I also like to do the partner workouts on Saturday mornings and sometimes attend open gym to work on things that I want to improve on.
What do you like to do outside of Steel Fox?
Outside of crossfit, I enjoy being active. I was a softball and ice hockey player growing up and love playing both socially now. I also enjoy Cape weekends and traveling!

What is something we might not know about you?

Something you may not know about me is that I am a triplet. I have a brother and sister, but I’m the oldest by 1 minute!
What is your favorite movement?
My favorite movement is either the strict press or squats.

What is your greatest accomplishment?

My greatest accomplishment would probably be completing my masters in special education in a one-year accelerated program. I started one week after I completed my bachelors and was also working full time.
What is one long term goal and one short term goal?

My long term goal is to be able to do 5 consecutive strict pull ups. My short term goal is to be able to do a handstand push-up.
What motivates and inspires you?
Working out in a gym with great coaches and company is really motivating for me. Whether you are the first or the last one finishing a workout, people are always there cheering you on.
