1. Tell us a little about yourself?

I am 26 years old and grew up in Quincy, MA. I currently live in Boston with two of my best-friends and work in client services for a digital marketing company. I love trying new things, going to the beach, and espresso martinis!

2. Tell us your CrossFit story (where were you before RCFBC and where are you now?)

Growing up I was never very athletic or into sports. I took dance lessons for about 10 years but that was really the only kind of exercise I had in my life.  I didn’t really start working out until I went to college. After a few years my workouts started to feel routine and I dreaded going to the gym. I knew I needed a change and something to challenge me. My sister had a few friends that went to RCFBC and she asked me to sign up for on-ramp with her. To be honest my first thought was no way I could never do that! But after thinking it over (and her persistently asking me) I decided to give it a try. It has now been a little over two years and I have never looked back!

3. What does being part of RCFBC community mean to you?

I think my favorite part of RCFBC is the atmosphere… the gym is such a fun place to come and work out at. Everyone is so friendly and always willing to help each other. The coaches and community push me farther than I could of ever imagined going on my own.  

4. What accomplishments are you most proud of?

I think my biggest accomplishment is the fact that I’ve been able to consistently stick with this for over two years. In the past I would sign up for a gym and usually only last a few months before losing interest. CrossFit pushes me out of my comfort zone every day and the soreness I feel every morning confirms that my fitness abilities are constantly progressing. The workouts that I do now I would never have been able to do a few years ago. 

5. What are your challenges and goals going forward?

I would love to be able to do pull-ups and handstand push-ups.

6. If you could describe RCFBC in one word what would it be?
