WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST IMPRESSION? HOW HAS IT CHANGED?
A: The first person I met was Erica Clark! She was so nice and welcoming. So, I initially had a great impression! Of course, the idea of CrossFit is intimidating at first, but I felt a lot better once I realized how you can scale the workouts to still be challenging and effective.

WHAT WAS ONE OF YOUR FIRST “BRIGHT SPOTS”

FAVORITE CROSSFIT MOVEMENT:
A: Cleans and Rowing

LEAST FAVORITE CROSSFIT MOVEMENT:
A: Running and push-ups (even though they are not CrossFit specific)

WHAT IS GOING TO BE YOUR NEXT BRIGHT SPOT
(NEXT BIG ACCOMPLISHMENT YOU’RE WORKING TOWARD)?
A: Mastering double unders and connecting pull-ups

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL AFTER A HARD WORKOUT?
A: I like to make ranch seasoned chicken, squash, and zucchini in the air fryer

TELL US ABOUT YOUR FAMILY (SPOUSE, KIDS, PETS, ETC.)
A: I live with my brother here in Lubbock! My parents are back home in Muenster.

WHAT KIND OF JOB DO YOU HAVE? 
A: 2nd-grade teacher

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR HOBBIES?
