Q1: What do you do for a living?

Q2: How did you get into Crossfit?

Jay: I had been wanting to try it and Jacqueline suggested going to the free classes.

Jac: We started in the first year Uncommon opened. We knew it was opening and wanted to try because we loved fitness, but had hectic schedules.  So after waiting several months, we scheduled a private foundations course since we couldn’t ever make it to the scheduled ones.

Q3: What is your favorite CF movement? Why?

Jay: Anything with kettlebells, snatch.

Jac: HSPU because I love being upside down.

Q4: What is your least favorite CF movement? Why?

Jay: Thrusters. They just suck the life out of me.

Jac: Anything really heavy…. I have an innate resistance to doing anything to failure or maxing out that I’m still exploring.

Q5. What do you like most about Uncommon?

Jay: Regardless of what level you’re at or how long you have been there, everyone encourages and supports you to do better.

Jac: The mind-body connection. There’s a foundation at Uncommon that understands that movement is healing and the mind and body are connected. The community is important too.

Q6: What have you learned most about yourself in the time that you have been members at Uncommon?

Jay: That there is always room for improvement. And when I think I am not able to do something, I do.

Jac: How resistant I am to “fighting.” I’m still exploring that, and it’s quite an interesting exploration.

Q7: What are your guilty pleasures?

Jay: eating sweets, especially pie and cake

Jac: Ice cream

Q8:  How do you like to spend time together outside of the gym?

Jay: Spending time with family and friends, playing guitar, and just enjoying life.

Jac: Two toddler boys and a puppy keep us on our toes. We love spending time together, going outside, doing yoga, taking walks … doing things is getting easier as the boys are getting older.
