Athlete Spotlight, Ashley!

Ashley is this week's spotlight athlete! She came to her first competitor's class last night and I can't wait to see her rock her first competition!

When and Why did you start CrossFit? I started CrossFit in July. I started CrossFit to challenge myself. I have always been involved in team sports or competitively working towards a goal (figure skating, rowing crew, and semi-pro dance/ coach). This as the first time I found myself left up to my own devices at the gym and it was not going well. I was bored, putting on weight, and starting to experience serious joint pain. My co-worker suggested CrossFit to me. She sad it was super intense and that Joy and I would definitely hit it off. Low and behold, she was right... I've been addicted ever since. (P.S. My injuries and arthritis have subsided! I feel great!)

Favorite WOD: Anything with Rowing or an absurd number of squats.

Least Favorite: Anything with running in it...
Example: "KELLY"<== Lamest WOD EVER!
