Athlete Spotlight: Missy

What made you choose CrossFit True?

When I mentioned I wanted to start Crossfit a few friends recommended I check out CF True. I’m so glad I did! 

How long have you been training with us?

A little over a year. 

What has been your proudest moment in the past 90 days?

There have been so many, but I would say participating in the Crossfit Open for the first time 

When you’re not at the gym, what do you do for work? What do you do for fun?

I work as a senior consultant in healthcare administration. When I’m not working I’m kayaking, hiking or at the gym. 

How is your nutrition? How has it changed since joining CrossFit True?

It could use some work, but since joining CF True I am far more aware of the foods I put into my body, especially if the goal is to perform well and push myself! 

What are your 3 favorite movements/exercises? 

Deadlifts, snatches (DB or barbell), and power cleans 

What is your favorite style workout? (AMRAP, EMOM, Rounds for Time, etc)

AMRAP or EMOM for sure! 

What about your favorite workout?

Shoot Your Shot sticks out as one of my favs! 

Any favorite workout songs? 

Anything Coach Ryan and I can dance to! Nothing slow, I need hype music! 

Have you changed physically or mentally since you’ve been working out with us?

Yes, both! I’m getting faster and my endurance has increased a ton. My confidence is growing and instead of focusing on the things I can’t do (yet), I focus on the progress I’ve made. 

What are your current goals?

Tackling the overhead squat, my nemesis! 

How have your goals changed since you joined? 

I used to be very focused on the weight I was lifting, but now I’m more focused on getting faster and better at the movements that challenge me. 

What has been the biggest surprise since joining CF True?

I think CF has a reputation for being intimidating and CF True is so far from that. Anyone can join and succeed in their fitness goals with the modifications and substitutions available for every workout. 

What can you do now that you couldn’t do before joining?

Olympic lifts and some gymnastics, like kipping! 

Say something else, Anything! 

The last year or so has been very difficult, but the way the coaches at CF True stepped up with Zoom workouts, lending out equipment, changing the landscape of the gym so we could attend in person and checking in when we needed it most, speaks volumes to the amazing community here.
