1) What kind of athletic background did you have prior to starting CrossFit?
The only athletic background I had before I started CrossFit was competitive cheerleading, which I did for about three years. Then, about a year into CrossFit, I fell in love with the olympic lifts and knew weightlifting was the sport for me.
2) What does your day in your life look out on average?
Morning: wake up, make coffee, grab a protein bar (“Oh Yeah! One” bars are my favorite)
9:00: go to the gym to get my morning workout done (always squats)
Afternoon: go home and make lunch (chicken, rice, veggies is my go-to meal), get school done and anything else that I have to do before heading back to the gym
2:45: head back to gym
3:30: stretch and warm up
4:00: team practice (I’ll usually have a yummy snack, like a pop tart, and aMorningn iced coffee with me)
7:30:head home from the gym
Nighttime: make dinner (breakfast for dinner is my fav…omelette, baco
n, potatoes), shower/epsom salt bath, stretching/mobility, TV watching laziness with my favorite shake (chocolate casein, banana, peanut butter) Doughnuts!
3) What’s in your gym bag?
My must have items in my gym bag are my weightlifting shoes, knee sleeves, wrist wraps, weight belt and my journal. I don’t do any supplements around training time. I usually just have coffee and a pop tart!
4) Your favorite workout, lift, movement
My favorite lift is the snatch. I enjoy cleaning as well, but jerks are my nemesis right now.
5) What motivates you?
My family, coach and teammates motivate me everyday. But I am also very self motivated. And I try to treat every training session like it’s my last.
