1. How did you learn about CrossFit?

Since 2005…started after I could dead hang from a pull-up bar after PT and never looked back!

Fran..evil Bi@#h…I love her and she hates me..3:23 rx’d

1. How did you learn about CrossFit?

I learned about CrossFit from the sexiest man I know. I remember him telling me that I would love it because I’m very competitive. It took some time for him to convince me to try it. I was one of those girls that we all hate that said “I don’t want to get bulky”. Now I laugh about it and absolutely love CrossFit! I can’t imagine doing anything else and I feel sorry for people running on a treadmill to get “fit”.

2. How long have you been CrossFitting?

I’ve been CrossFitting for almost 5 years now.

3. What’s your favorite Nasty Girl? (and your best time)

My favorite Nasty girl is Annie and my PR for Annie was 6:04.

4. If you have a military background, what service were you in and how many tours have you had?

I was in the Air Force and was lucky enough not to be deployed.

5. What certifications do you have and what certifications are on your wish list?

I have a Level 1 certification and would love to get my USAW cert and focus more on olympic lifting.

I was already cross-training and using kettlebells to improve in racquet sports. One of the guys I train with saw me and said, “you know there are places that do all this stuff you do, but in a group for time and reps.” Once I heard that, I started looking for a box.

Off and on since 2009. Consistently and competitively for a year now.
