What brought you to CHCF?
I was tired, out of shape, bored at the gym and looking for something challenging. I want to be a positive role model for my kids when it comes to health and fitness. And, as a competitive person, I want to outrun those kids for as long as possible; but now they’re doing Crossfit Kids, so we’ll see how long it lasts.
What is your biggest goal this month? Which WOD or movement are you trying to improve the most?
A million things, but that’s the beauty of Crossfit, there’s always something to work on. Right now I’m trying to focus on improving body weight stuff, like stringing together more than 3 pull-ups or getting a few ring dips. I have a long-term goal (I think it will take no more than 30 years) of getting a muscle up too.
What is your favorite song to work out to?
I can listen to anything; you’ll NEVER hear me complain about the music, from death metal to classic country or Broadway show tunes and Top 40 radio.
What would you say to someone who is interested in CHCF?
Try it! Don't be intimidated! The coaches are amazing--so knowledgeable and so positive! Yes, the workouts can be hard, but the atmosphere is incredibly encouraging. Everyone supports each other, whether your goal is getting to the Games or getting through the warmup. There is zero judging. Also, you’d be surprised at how much awesomeness your body is capable of.
Tell us something that nobody knows about you…
I’m a pretty good juggler.
What is your favorite motivational quote or mantra?
Coincidentally, it was recently on the board at CHCF—“Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth”-Mike Tyson.
It’s funny and random and it’s from Mike Tyson, but more seriously--we’re all going to be faced with adversity—how will we handle it? At Crossfit you’ll always come across things that you stink at, but with the guidance of our skilled coaches and the cheers of your classmates, you get it done. Sometimes it might be ugly, other times it’s beautiful, but when that clock gets to 3, 2, 1, you just take a deep breath and get to work. And then watch as that confidence and mental toughness spills over into life outside the gym.
What’s the worst “cheat” meal you’ve ever had?
Um, everything? Fair Claire loves food.
