Our September Spotlight Athlete is:
Jen has been an athlete at the gym since May 2018. She is a dedicated member of our 9am class, and one of our Primal Mamas! She has made the gym a part of her daily routine, and says "I know that after I drop my daughter off at school I go straight to CrossFit. My youngest is able to play in childcare while I do the 9am Workout. By 10am I’ve hit all my movement and exercise goals on my watch for the day!"
Jen says her biggest challenge at the gym is metabolic conditioning, and she is happy about CrossFit's shift in focus back to the basics. "If I want all of my lifts and gymnastics movements to get better I need to build my engine." Though she dislikes thrusters, her ideal workout would include power snatches and abmat sit-ups!
Jen's favorite part about the gym is the community, and the fact that " everyone knows each other and truly cares how you’re doing." We're happy to know you Jen and love to see the progress you continue to make!
