Spotlight Athlete-Kristi!!

This week's spotlight athlete is Kristi! Kristi is a morning class attendee but you will also catch her during competitors class, and body conditioning class! Read on to learn more about Kristi's awesome story!

When/Why did you first start doing CrossFit?

I started doing CrossFit a year ago when my cousins got me into it.  I was hesitant to start but could not imagine having not started! It’s by far the best way to start my day. I started CrossFit because I really liked the idea of working out with others and having some friendly competition to stay motivated day in and day out. 

What fitness activities were you doing before?

Before I started CrossFit I was running and doing some resistance training at planet fitness.  I’ve always been into athletics and nutrition and always played sports growing up.  I lived for basketball and couldn’t imagine not playing once I was out of school, but I have to say I think CrossFit is now equal with basketball.

What results have you seen since you joined CrossFit Beyond?

My strength has definitely increased and I feel like fitness has a new meaning, but I can’t believe how much my endurance and agility has increased.  Even when I was most into basketball I didn’t feel like I could move the way I can now.  It’s amazing how my endurance has increased. 

What do you like most about CrossFit Beyond?

I really enjoy the people I have met through CrossFit.  The friendships I have made have really been great and so meaningful.  I also really enjoy learning all the different movements and the whole teaching part of CrossFit. 

What is your favorite CF exercise? Your least favorite?

My favorite CrossFit exercise is rope climbs and box jumps.  I also like the bench press and the deadlift.  My least favorite is back squats and the snatch. The snatch scares me and back squats just always feel too darn heavy!

What CF accomplishment are you currently most proud of?

I am most proud of my mile run time.  When I was in high school and college I was always known to be very slow and could never imagine getting a sub 8min mile.  When I ran a 6:56 min mile this summer I had to look at the clock 3 times to make sure it was right, I couldn’t believe it!

What CF goal are you working towards?

I want a muscle up really really bad…

Unity House Adopt A Family!!

unity

This year, CrossFit Beyond, is once again partnering up with the Unity House in Troy to provide local children with gifts for the holiday season. Last year was a HUGE success, with our members going above and BEYOND what was needed! We hope to do the same again this year! We have adopted six children, and have received a wish list for the children.  This list provides the names, ages/sizes of the children.  With the help of a teacher at their Unity Sunshine Program, the children have listed 2 wants and 2 needs.  The Unity House has asked that the gifts be left unwrapped and that they do not need to exceed $25.oo. We will have ornaments with a child's name and a wish list item hanging up at the gym. Please attach this ornament to the gift that you purchase, in order to keep track of each child and gift.  If you wish to participate, simply take one ornament with an item listed, and drop it off to us no later than Wednesday, December 10th. 

The Unity House is also is need of some GENERAL items for the Holiday season as well... these items include:

-Twin bed sheet sets

-Twin bed blankets

-Towels

Thank you in advance to our members for providing anything that you can for local families in need!
