How long have you been CrossFitting?
How did you hear about CrossFit?
I heard about CrossFit from my bestfriend, Dez. She was telling me that my husband, Angelo would enjoy it because it’s challenging and something completely different from the plain old gym. Angelo ended up researching CrossFit and started CrossFit Fremont in January 2011. Angelo worked out with married couples training at Fremont and wanted me to join them, but I was intimated by CrossFit. In July, I decided to join bootcamp training with a girlfriend but bootcamp wasn’t challenging enough and felt more like a P.E. class than an effective workout. My husband always talked about CrossFit, showed me awesome results and finally decided I wanted to give it a try with Kindred.
How is your CrossFit Kindred experience different from other training regimens/gyms?
Crossfit Kindred is more like a family working out together. I enjoy training with Jeff and Cindy because they give me positive feedback on my workouts and also correct my form when needed. I’ve worked out without being told by the trainer that my form was incorrect, but at CrossFit Kindred… they make sure that you go through the motion properly to avoid injury.
What are your goals with CrossFit?
My goals with CrossFit are to build strength and endurance.
What is your most/least favorite movement, why?
My least favorite movement would be air squats because they’re tough, but they’re also my favorite because the end result leads to a better looking bum.
Which WOD do you “enjoy” most?
The one I hate right now would have to be “The Filthy Fifty”.
What’s your favorite thing about CrossFit? The motivation from my trainer, Jeff and everyone else at CrossFit. It’s a family at CrossFit Kindred.
