Where are you from? I am originally from Reno, NV. Ryan and I moved to Bedford from Los Angeles about 12 years ago.
How long have you been a member at Steel Fox and why did you join? I joined in the fall of 2015. I joined because I was bored with my exercise routine, and I wanted to try something different.
What classes do you usually attend? I usually attend the 530am classes, and I sometimes go on Sunday mornings.
What do you like to do outside of Steel Fox? I enjoy hiking, reading, gardening and boating.
What is something we might not know about you? I am a big science fiction fan. I watched Star Wars obsessively as a small child. Star Trek the Next Generation is the reason I survived adolescence.
What is your favorite crossfit movement? I like deadlifts and cleans.
What is your greatest accomplishment? My greatest Crossfit accomplishment is finally being able to do a pull-up, which took me almost 2 and ½ years.
What is one long term goal and one short term goal? In the short-term, I would like to improve upon my kipping pull-ups, so that I can string more together and get less tired. In the long-term, I would like to improve my upper body strength, so that I can more easily do handstand pushups and anything that requires pulling weight over my head.
What motivates and inspires you? I enjoy being able to monitor my progress in Crossfit and working out with a lot of nice and encouraging people.
