Q: Why did you start CrossFit?
A: I started Crossfit because I have always been an athlete/active but I struggled in my adult life to find something that I loved, so I thought I would try it. Turns out I loved it!!!
Q: Why Octane?
A: My brother Wes actually had been going to Octane for a few months already and loved everything about it. So I gave it a try. Regan really made me feel welcome and I felt that he and the other coaches really explained movements and taught me that correct form is more important than heavy weight. I quickly realized the community is seriously the best, and I love going to the gym to see everyone and watch them achieve their goals. We also hang out outside of the gym and help or volunteer together and I love that. We are a family!!
Q: Goals for the year?
A: I am focusing on gaining strength which takes a long time!! Also, want to get that strict pull-up too!!!
Q: Any advice for the new members?
A: My advice is to not rush into going super heavy and to focus on the correct form in lifts and to learn to pace yourself in all workouts, as this will help you become a better overall athlete! And to remember it's FUN!!!!
