CVSC Committed Athlete – Jodi Bailey
Occupation: Director of Internal Audits at USU.
Type of training before CrossFit:
Prior to Crossfit, I was spending, at a minimum, an hour and a half every day with a combination of lifting and cardio machines. My first WOD was a 20 minute AMRAP. I remember thinking“WHAT? Only 20 minutes, no problem”……..and then I died at the 10 minute mark.
ANYTHING Tabata! I can wrap my brain around going all out for 20 seconds.
I love Fight Gone Bad“ish” too.
Any hobbies you have outside of the gym?
Camping, jetskiing, biking, hiking, gardening….anything outdoors when the weather is warm.
Something about me that people at CVSC don’t know..
I was a chubby kid. I even had a cousin who used to call me ButterBall because I was a chub. I have to fight my genetic predisposition toward chubbiness and balance my love of chocolate – it’s a daily battle ;-P
Any words of advice for newer members at CVSC?
I have tried every other form of fitness conditioning there is – from aerobic classes, kickboxing, body sculpting (whatever that is??), you name it, I’ve tried it. I have never gotten the results that I have with CVSC! You have to do your part though. Proper nutrition is key to attaining and maintaining serious results.
Any other comments?
I love that I don’t have to figure out what I’m going to work on today (legs, back and bis, shoulders, etc). It’s all planned and programmed for me and the coaches keeping me up to par when I am slacking and my form is failing. Each day is new, different and challenging!
My absolute favorite thing about CVSC is the sense of community. I have lifelong friends from all walks of life that I would not have gotten the opportunity to know without the CVSC community.
Thanks again for all you do BT!
