What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
I had been working out from home from quite some time and I got tired of working out alone all the time. So I decided that I wanted to join a community, not just a gym! and Westmount CrossFit is a community – we push each other, encourage each other and it’s a great way to start my day!
What was your first impression? How has that changed?
At first I thought there were so many things I wouldn’t be able to do – handstand pushups, deadlifts… but every workout is scaled so as we get comfortable with the workouts we can progress more and more.
What was your first highlight?
Doing handstand push-ups, I thought it would take me years before I would be able to do that.
What are you working on improving now in CrossFit?
My endurance and my cardio, I’m leaving for a 5-day hiking trip. In our workouts I’m able to work on both.
What is your favorite CrossFit Westmount memory?
Seeing Serge doing his first DU and being so surprised that he stopped skipping! We all laughed! It’s like being amongst family.
