Tell us about your sports and fitness background:
I played soccer for many years but right now I kite surf and trying to get in to dirt bike riding.
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD (if you can remember…) what was it, and how did it feel?
I don't remember but it felt like a slap in the face :)
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
2.5 months after I had my baby I started Crossfit again. Now I've been doing Crossfit for 4.5 months and I didn't expect to get back into shape so fast.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)?
I feel stronger and I have a lot of energy. I am even more fit than I was before I had my baby.
Any advice for people just getting started?
Learn the movements and the different techniques before adding weight. It minimizes the risk of hurting yourself .
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?
Like mentioned before, kite surfing is one of my biggest passions. But right now Im fully focused on getting my degree in Nursing.
