Q2: How did you get into Crossfit?
J: Both of my daughters do Crossfit and they suggested that I give it a try.
D: We have been involved in strength training for several years. Judy and my Daughters talked me into trying it a couple years ago. I started with HERO WODs I quickly realized this is what was missing from my weekly routine.
Q3: What is your favorite CF movement? Why?
J: Thrusters- it’s a full body workout.
D: Thrusters. I like the challenge and ability to work multiple muscle groups with one movement.
Q4: What is your least favorite CF movement? Why?
J: Ooh so many!!! Box jumps, double unders and so on. JK, I’ve seen several of my own children come home from workouts with split open shines… and DUs, 3 in a row is my limit!
D: It is a toss up between the one I am about to do and the one I just finished. Actually pull ups, they are very difficult for me to do.
Q5: What do you like most about Uncommon?
J: All the members are motivating during the workouts and are so supportive. Coaches are engaging and will help you succeed in your goals.
D: The extra hour I spend with Judy and the Family atmosphere. Everyone are very friendly and take time to see how you are doing.
Q6: What have you learned most about yourselves in the time that you have been members at Uncommon?
J: That I’m stronger than I thought I was.. I have never had access to facilities like Uncommon Gym. Now that I do, I’m able to progress quickly.
D: Most limitations for me were mental. A years ago I never thought I would be able to do box jumps or power cleans again . Now I look forward to the challenge.

J: Pizza, Margaritas, Caramel Apples this week!
D: Nachos ( I have been told numerous times by my family that they are not their own food group) and anything Sweet!!
