November Featured Athlete: Sandra Ferrari
1. How did you find out about Crossfit?
I had heard about Crossfit over the last few years from several sources but what got me really interested was my friend Jen Levy. When I saw her after not having seen her for 6 months, I made an appointment for the newbie Saturday class the same week and never looked back!
2. What is your favorite Crossfit exercise or WOD?
I enjoy doing band pullups and knees to elbows. My favorite WOD was the Quad Killer at the Old Main Hill. It was super tough but so much fun!
3. How long have you been Crossfitting for?
I have now been Crossfiting for 18 months and have never once been bored or thought of not coming back. It also helps that CVSC is such a neat community of people. I absolutely love it!
4. What do you do for a living?
I am a software developer who sits at the computer 8 to 10 hours a day. I am a proud “Nooner” and that break to Crossfit in the middle of the day is perfect for me physically and mentally. There’s nothing that works better for giving your mind a break than only thinking about the next burpee!
5. What are your hobbies?
I like to read and enjoy foreign movies. I mostly enjoy spending time with my two awesome daughters.
6. What are your goals?
My goal is to get stronger every day. I would like to be able to do more than one dead hung pull up in a row!
7. Why do you Crossfit?
I have been fairly active throughout my life but I have to say that I have never felt this good. It is never boring because WODs are always different. It is empowering to see how little by little one makes so much progress. This empowerment translates into all facets of your life.
8. Any advice for future CrossFitters?
My advice to future Crossfiters would be to try it and hang in there! The WODs are tough but you feel so good after you are done, you will only want to come back for more!
