Spotlight Athlete-Gabby!!

This week's spotlight athlete is Gabby! She is usually a night class attendee, but you will often see her on Saturday mornings and in the competitor's class as well!



When/Why did you first start doing CrossFit?

I first started Crossfit Beyond or Crossfit in general due to a living social deal I found in August of 2012. Being new to the Albany area, my motivation level was at slim to none when it came to working out so I thought what the heck and tried out crossfit.

What fitness activities were you doing before?

Before I came here I was very active, participating in any outdoor activities I could. In high school I ran track and I was a dancer/cheerleader my whole life. I even cheered in the NFL for 3 years for my favorite team, the Buffalo Bills! I also taught pilates for about 5 years which kept me flexible and healthy.

What results have you seen since you joined CrossFit Beyond?

Since I have joined crossfit I have become a lot stronger. I have learned how to eat better, I have seen more definition in my muscles and my overall health and well-being is so much better.

What do you like most about CF?

Working in the beer business, it is hard to stay motivated and keep a good figure!

What is your favorite CF exercise?

My favorite crossfit movement is probably a deadlift but I love to squat too.

Your least favorite?

My least favorite movements would have to be burpees and rowing.

What CF accomplishment are you currently most proud of?

I am proud of many things that I have achieved in the past year and a half.  Rope Climbing, Handstand Pushups and most of all Pullups but the family at Crossfit beyond is unbeatable.

What CF goal are you working towards?

I am so glad to have met everyone and I cannot wait for Mayhem in the Meadowlands!
