1. How did you find out about Crossfit? I had heard about it from multiple people, but it was really my husband, Brady, that started looking into it and all the gyms available for us in Cache Valley.

2. What is your favorite Crossfit exercise or WOD? I enjoy the workouts that are circuit style, moving from one movement to the next. I feel that I get a good all over workout by doing so many movements in one workout. I also really enjoy workouts that include lifting a lot of weights.

3. How long have you been Crossfitting for? My husband and I have been coming to Crossfit together since August 2012, so just over a year.

4. What do you do for a living? I work at Bear River Association of Governments (BRAG). I do low-income assistance for families in crisis situations with their housing and utilities. I also coordinate the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program in Rich, Box Elder, and Cache Counties. I coordinate volunteers that are IRS trained to do basic tax returns for families.

5. What are your hobbies? I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I love to travel, especially to warmer places then Cache Valley! Summers are full of hiking and camp fires. Winters are full of cuddling in blankets with a good book. I like to give of my time to help others through volunteer work in the community and my church.

6. What are your goals? My dream is to someday be a mother. I love kids and would love to have the opportunity to raise them in a good home.

7. Why do you CrossFit? I Crossfit because I love the variety of cardio and weights. I’m able to do workouts with the group that I never would have been able to come up with on my own. I may not always love how I feel during a workout, but I love how I feel after. I sometimes feel that I have been pushed to the extreme and it is good to know what I can accomplish.

8. Any advice for future CrossFitters? Just do it! Make sure to eat healthy and drink a lot of water to keep hydrated. How you eat definitely effects how your workouts go. Be consistent. Once you start, try to stick to a good workout schedule.
