Where ya from originally?
How long have you been with CrossFit Las Vegas?
What’s your favorite WOD?
Fight gone bad was fun
What’s your least favorite WOD?
What were you doing before CrossFit? How did you hear about CrossFit and/or CrossFit Las Vegas?
I was a chronic runner at 24 hour with some strength. My friend from Scottsdale was posting her Crossfit work outs on Facebook. Every time I read them I was like what the heck is she doing! I was exhausted from just reading them and had to check it out. I really wanted a change in my body, I wanted more muscle. I did a search and found CFLV.
Give us some insight as to your thoughts after your first workout at CrossFit Las Vegas.
I thought I was in shape from all the running I did….NOT! I was beat after every work out but I loved it. I knew this was going to make the changes I wanted.
Tell us a little about then vs. now with regard to your performances on a couple of the benchmark WODs, ie Fran or Cindy.
I’ve done Murphy twice, but I added a few minutes to my time. I tried to do as many push ups not modified. I did fight gone bad twice and increased my reps and added 10 pounds to my presses and SDHP.
Do you have any special or favorite CrossFit Las Vegas memories/moments?
Everytime I’m doing strength and my weight goes up. I’m doing my 3×5 at the weight that use to be my one max rep.
What advice would you give to a newbie or someone just joining CrossFit Las Vegas?
Try it, don’t get discouraged if you can’t do a lot of weight or if you have to modify an exercise, or come in last. It will come with your determination to succeed. And everyone is so encouraging. Like everyone says “it’s addicting”!
And finally (and most importantly) Who is the best and most incredible coach at CrossFit Las Vegas? Explain/defend your answer.
I love them all, they each teach and motivate in their own way. But, I’m a little partial to Mikey, he was my Elements coach and he is really good at critiquing and explaining movements. He pushes me to do more and keep going during workouts.
