Member Of The Month – March 2017

Member Of The Month March 2017

Tell us a little bit about  yourself? (family, where you are from, etc)  I am retired and live in Downers Grove with my husband, Rick, of 38 years.  I have 2 sons (32 and 36) and 5 grandchildren (aged between 2 months and 4 years). 

How did you get started in CrossFit?  My younger son is an avid crossfitter.  So, when I saw an ad on Facebook for beginners, it appealed to me.  I came out, met with Robbie, and signed up for the New You Challenge in November 2016.

What are your favorite movements to do during a wod?  I’m not sure what my favorite movements are, but I’m quite sure I could live a long and happy life without burpies and mountain climbers.

What do you love best about CrossFit?  I truly enjoy the comradery and support that I see in the gym.  More often than not–to be totally honest– I am the last person to finish the WOD and I still hear nothing but encouragement.  

When you’re not in the gym busting your butt, what is your favorite things to do?  One of my favorite ways to spend my time, when I am not in the gym, is playing with my grandchildren.  Also, my husband is a Shriner, so we participate in many of the activities hosted at the Shrine and raising funds for the Chicago Children’s Shrine Hospital.  And, last, but not least, a good afternoon nap goes a long way!!!

Tell us something that most people don’t know about yourself?   I ran a half marathon and raised over $10,000 for the Chicago Children’s Shrine Hospital.
