Q: Why did you start CrossFit?
A: I needed something that was going to motivate me. Going to the regular gym and going on the elliptical for 20 minutes wasn’t doing anything for me. I didn’t really know much about working out and what I needed to do to start seeing changes I wanted to see. So, joining CrossFit was a great way to know what to do when working out.
Q: Why Octane?
A: I joined Octane after switching from another CrossFit gym because I felt more included here. With the previous gym, I never spoke with the owner and the coaches were hard to connect with. The owner at Octane made an effort to connect with me and would spark a conversation when I was working out alone when I was new. I can tell the owner loved his gym and wanted to include everyone, which is amazing when you’re an introvert.
Q: Goals for the year?
A: My goal for this upcoming year is to be able to Snatch my body weight, so adding an additional 40 pounds. Yikes!
Q: Any advice for the new members?
A: Trust the process. It sucks at first (like, a lot!) but it gets easier! Once you see changes, whether it’s your physical appearance or endurance, you’ll be hooked! (The first rule of CrossFit is to talk about CrossFit).
