Who are you and what do you do?

Describe yourself in ONE positive word.
Inspired

If you were an animal which would you be and why?
I have no idea… so I am just going to say a baby fainting goat bc they are so hilariously cute and I want one.

How did you get to Breed?
I found a Groupon online for personal training but the noon class worked out better.

What are some of your good habits or characteristics?
I believe that I am a loyal friend, a good mother, I am very organized when I want or need to be and I think that I am a good cook.

Do you enjoy working out, Why or why not?
Yes and no… 99% of the time I really enjoy getting into that noon class but sometimes I just wish I could go home and take a nap!

What super powers would you have liked to have? Why?
Power Mimicry… that way I could be the best at anything!

Make a list of 5 things you are grateful for.
My son, my husband, my parents & brother, my friends and my home.

Who or what inspires you?
My son.

What are you currently improving in CrossFit?
burpees and box “jumps”… still on step ups… I need to work on running.

How is CrossFit changing your life?
I injured my back before I got pregnant with my son and was in pain all day every single day for months. It slowly got better but on occasion I would need to go see my chiropractor. Breed is really making those visits very infrequent. I am much stronger now and willing to try harder WOD’s that I wouldn’t have tried before.

What current book or music are you currently into?
Right now I am listening to Christmas music (don’t laugh… it brings me joy!) and I am about to start reading The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. If you follow me on instagram or are friends with me on Facebook then you know that Coldplay is my favorite band and Chris Martin once told me not to die.

What projects are you working on outside of CrossFit?
I focus on my son. He is 18 months old and wonderful.

Share with us something we might not know about you.
I am trying to work really hard so I can get rid of (not lose because I don’t want to find it every again) some weight by next September so I can try to have another baby.
