Our September 2021 Member Spotlight goes to….
I’m a nursing supervisor, with experience in emergency medicine and pediatric trauma.
I fell in love with the sport of weightlifting and found a coach who trained me for my first competition. When he was moving, we learned that Uncommon had a barbell club and decided being in an atmosphere with other lifters would benefit me most. I had no intention of being a Crossfitter when I began, and was a little confused on my first day at Uncommon why you all were walking with eyes closed on 2×4 boards. I tried one class after that, and the rest is history.
I love any of the Olympic movements because that’s where my passion lies, however StrongFit has held my interest for the last few years. Just give me a sandbag!
Burpees or wallballs – my legs are so long and it’s a long ways down.
The community is, hands down, one of the biggest benefits of our gym. There are days I want to skip the workout but may not socialize much anyway unless I go. I always feel better after being encouraged by the coaches and talking with you all!
I LOVE to read, and when I start a book it’s hard for me to pace – usually it’s all or nothing and I will sacrifice sleep to finish a good book!
I’m a fairly busy mom and spend a lot of time with my kids either at their sports or other extracurricular activities. Outside of that I’ve just been trying to learn how to relax, and how to spend my time alone! I enjoy biking, hiking, swimming, and trying new things that challenge me and make me a better person. Setting small goals every day helps me feel accomplished and Uncommon helps me do that!
