Where are you from? I am from Reading, but currently live in Lexington.
How long have you been a member at Steel Fox Crossfit? I have been a member at Steel Fox since January 2018. I joined because I missed crossfit, I had been doing crossfit regularly since summer 2016 and had take a little break due to my job. I was lifting by myself and just really missed the comradery that a box provides.
What classes do you attend? I normally work out at 6:30pm, sometimes 9:00am Friday if I can, and Saturday mornings.
What do you like to do outside of steel fox? I enjoy craft beers, being outside, hiking, and cycling.
What is something we might not know about you? Something that you guys don’t know about me is that I was born 3.5 months premature and weighed less than a pound.
What is your favorite crossfit movement? There are so many movements that I like, but I think that heavy back squats, and power cleans are my favorite.
What is your greatest accomplishment? My greatest crossfit accomplishment so far PR’ing my overhead squat at 135lbs. If anyone knows me, they know how much I despise OHS, but thanks to Rita I learned a new foot position that made me not hate them anymore.
What is one long term goal and one short term goal? One long term goal I have to be able to do the workout as prescribed more often than not as well as build my endurance. One short term goal is break into the 400 club on my deadlifts.
What motivates and inspires you? I think that the idea of doing the workout or lift better than the last time motivates me. I am a very competitive person, but I think that having the community around while working out makes me go harder and faster every time I step into that floor. I also constantly repeat the phrase I’m a sled dog over and over again. If you haven’t seen The Redeemed and Dominant, Katrin equates herself to a sled dog because they are bred to work and I try to my best to embody that in all of our workouts.
