Marnie 1. How did you find out about CrossFit?

My sister-in-law Jayme Thompson told me about it and so we thought we would give it a try together.  I knew right away that Crossfit was exactly what I was looking for.

 

2. What is your favorite Crossfit exercise or WOD?

I love anything with weights and I'm not thrilled with a lot of cardio, which means that I should do more cardio!  I like the filthy fifty and doing any WOD that includes the prowler, tires, or anything a little different.

 

3. How long have you been CrossFitting for?

Almost 4 1/2 years.

 

4. What do you do for a living?

I am a stay at home mom with four kids.

 

5. What are your hobbies?

I am pretty busy running after my kids with all of their activities but if I have free time I like to hike, golf and really any physical activity.  I like to spend time with family as well as shop.

 

6. What are your goals?

With Crossfit, my goals have changed since I started.  When I first began, I wanted to lose weight and make it through a WOD without having to modify it.  Now, I want to be stronger and keep pushing myself to be better.

 

7. Why do you CrossFit?

I Crossfit because I love it!!  I love the programming!  I don't have to think about my workout because I know that Brad has done that for me.  The WODs are challenging and I really like the all over strength that I have gained from Crossfitting.

 

8. Any advice for future CrossFitters?

Just come give it a try.  If you have one ounce of competitiveness, you'll love it!  It's challenging but you can modify at first and the trainers here are excellent!  I have learned that what you eat does make a big difference in how you feel and how you perform, so nutrition is just as important as the exercise.
