We caught up with Amanda and asked her some questions about her personal CrossFit journey – check out her answers below. We just love having you, Amanda!
Q: What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?A: “After two years away from a group exercise routine, I knew I needed to be held accountable if I wanted to reach my goals. I popped in Locomotion on the open house day and knew it was the right spot for me.”Q: What was your first impression? How has that changed?A: “The knowledgeable & supportive environment has been there since day one. This has only changed by increasing exponentially as wonderful people and coaches continue to join the Locomotion family.”
Q: What was your first “bright spot”?A: “In prepping weight for a back squat, I grabbed a bar and felt it was too much after giving it a try. I put the bar back, grabbed another and went for it. After the workout, Jay told me I just succeeded using the same weight I initially thought was too much. A lot of what we do is mind over matter.”Q. What are you working on now?A: “I’m working on making it to class consistently and supporting my workout with the right food. If getting there is half the battle, then making it count by eating healthy is the next step.”Q: What’s your favorite Locomotion Memory?A: “Friday Night Lights are my favorite memories thus far. Sharing the Crossfit experience with my family means a lot. My daughter, Zoe, asked last week if we could come every Friday. My heart was full!”
*Yes, Zoe! You can!!Thanks Amanda! See you around the gym!
