Im a wannabe meat-head and love barbell movements, especially Cleans and the Snatch. I also like rowing.

I not a big fan of running but endurance class is helping me get over this slowly.

 

4. What were you doing before CrossFit? How did you hear about CrossFit and/ CrossFit Northlake?

Before Crossfit, I did the typical Y routine. I was working out with a personal trainer that used some of the same movements and format as Crossfit. I had a friend that was working out at Crossfit Vitality and he invited me to try it out, which I did. The warm-up wrecked me and I loved it. I met Amy and Jason through Crossfit Vitality and followed them to Crossfit Northlake because of the great atmosphere they have built.

My daughters and I like to swim and go hiking.

 

6. How many times per week do you CrossFit?

I make it Crossfit about 5 days a week. Any less than that and I get cranky. J

I’ve never been really into organized sports. I did some sprinting in college, but it was usually just to get away from whatever trouble I was getting into.

I was so glad because I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. The atmosphere was so supportive.

 

9. Do you have any special or favorite CrossFit Northlake
