Our August 2021 Member Spotlight goes to….

Casie Pestle!!

Check out what Casie has to say about her journey at The Uncommon Gym!  As you’ll read, she did foundations (March 2016), but had some unexpected, happy news thereafter.  We can’t wait to celebrate her 5 year anniversary soon!  Casie, you’re an important member of the Uncommon family and we’re excited to have you as our member spotlight!

Q1: What do you do for a living?

I am the Director of Chaos at Creekside Acres.

.
Q2: How did you get into Crossfit?

I kind of just jumped into it. One day, I told Chris that CrossFit looked fun and two weeks later I did my foundations classes. On the last day of foundations, I found out I was pregnant with the Hurricane. Since I had not been working out prior to getting pregnant, we were advised to wait until after HP was born. 13 weeks postpartum, I walked back in the doors and drank the kool-aid!

.
Q3: What is your favorite CF movement? Why?

Power Cleans!!!! They make me feel like a badass!

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

Am I allowed to put running here??!!?Or is that not considered a traditional CrossFit movement? I used to cherry pick the hell out of running wods. I don’t do that anymore though (*wink*) My least favorite CF movement would probably be wallballs with a side of thrusters! I loathe them! I struggle to breathe during those movements and i end up just Feeling like a weenie.

.
Q5: What do you like most about Uncommon?

Hands down, THE COMMUNITY! You can’t beat the vibe of Uncommon.

.
Q6: What have you learned most about yourselves in the time that you have been members at Uncommon?
Remember back in question 4, when I mentioned running being my least favorite movement(because it’s not a strength of mine)… well I paid to do a sprint tri that included a 5k this past weekend because I’ve learned that I AM capable of doing hard shit, pushing myself to the brink of tears and coming back for more the next day. Uncommon ROCKS! If anyone disagrees, I’ll fight you!
.
Q7: What are your guilty pleasures?

Chips 🙂 the saltier the better! I have no self control!

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

I love live music and cold beers, painting, crafting, being outside on our farm, playing with my boys, trying new things and hanging out with my awesome husband!
