Our July 2021 Member Spotlight goes to….
I’m an engineer at Caterpillar, which is not something I thought 20 years ago I would say.
I was impressed by the arm muscles of a coworker (Brenna.) I didn’t really know much about CrossFit 5 years ago, but I was looking to get in better shape and if I could get arms like that, I was all in!
My favorite CrossFit movement is probably the clean or thruster. It’s just so cool to see people move a barbell really fast – mine are always a work in progress!
The bike is probably my least favorite – I have not become one with it yet. Maybe one day it won’t make my lungs and legs burn quite so much? One can hope…
Everything. Coaches, programming, the community. Since I finished running in high school 23 years ago, this is the only type of fitness that I have done consistently…and it’s been 5 years now! I love coming to Uncommon each time. I really don’t think there has ever been a day when I didn’t want to show up.
I still like sugar a little too much. I also love watching M*A*S*H.
Outside of the gym, I love spending time with my family – especially watching my kids do what they love. I’m trying to sleep more, scroll FB less, and figure out a way to work less too!
