Favorite WOD: Murph
Least favorite WOD: If there was one, then I shouldn't be doing CrossFit, each WOD is built to test you
Eating Style: Zone Diet, intermittent fasting, and eating bad
Splurge: Barn yard pimp wings
Respected WODkilla: The driven person you see in your mirror
Favorite WOD song: Shepherd of Fire Avenged Sevenfold
Favorite Quote: Master becoming driven for your goals, because someone somewhere is expecting your failures.
Why CrossFit: CrossFit gives me the challenge, intensity, and push that I need to reach my functional fitness, strength and health goals. It has a way of driving me to my breaking point of physical and mental pain, which I experience humbleness, respect and challenges my will to never quit. Through Crossfit each day I am becoming stronger and healthier than I have ever been in my life, and beside fitness alone, I get to work alongside some of the best people you could ever meet, that have the same will to push for gains.

Least Favorite Wod: Don't like running
Eating Style: Aggressive, but with manners
Splurge: Pizza, pasta, Chex Mix, Pinwheels, Cookie Cakes
Respected WodKilla: Jill McGahee, Keith Blount
Favorite Wod Song: "Cult of Personality" - In Living Color
Favorite Quote: "Isn't it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back everything is different." -C.S. Lewis
Why CrossFit: I eat like an idiot and cant stand running. You don't have to do any extra running other than what is programmed. I've always enjoyed working out, but it got stale in a gym. Crossfit allowed me the opportunity to get better at something and push myself to learn new things. It humbles you quickly but rewards you greatly.

Favorite Quote: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”. Get up and try something new!
Why CrossFit: I originally joined CrossFit in 2017 because I wanted to get in shape for my wedding. I started to see my body change and quickly fell in love with the sport. 3 years later, it has now become my daily structured playtime. I love the atmosphere of a CrossFit gym and look forward to the high energy-pain/suffering that it brings to my life each day!

Home town: Mobile, AL
Fav Wod: Anything with a barbell... Give me something like DT and Grace any day.
Least Fav Wod: Not a huge fan of dubs or rope climbs. Anything else is fair game and I’ll just suffer through it.
Eating Style: I approach my nutrition like I do most of my life- cautiously optimistic. 🤪 I eat with good intentions, but I’m human like the rest of us. Huge fan of macros when I get my mind right.
Splurge: Mexican (if you know me, you know this is an important part of my life— tacos and tequila fuel this Mom bod). Pizza is a close second and anything sweet, except chocolate. I’m an all vanilla kinda girl.
Respected WODKilla: Kara Saunders! Homegirl balances training, being a mom and a Boss B and does it so well. I wanna be her when I grow up. Dani Speegle is way up there too. Just cause I have a girl crush on her and she represents us thick girls in the pack.
Favorite WOD Song: Anything that fits my mood that day. If we are lifting heavy, it better be angry. If we are WODin out, gimme all the hip hop and good beats ya got.
Favorite Quote: Pain is just weakness leaving the body.
Why CrossFit: Man... why not? As an athlete all my life, I craved competition and community in my adult life. I walked into my first box scared to death and intimidated. Nearly 5 years later, I’ve found it was the best decision of my life. I’ve pushed myself to limits I never thought possible and achieved some pretty cool things along the way. I’ve met some of my best friends who are more like family now that support me and encourage my growth in more than just the gym walls. Plus I like to think I’m kinda fit now so that helps too.

Favorite Quote: “You can’t ensure how long you will live, but you can determine how fully you live while you are alive.”
Why CrossFit: Crossfit has made me a better version of myself. I get to compete every day to be better than yesterday. I get to push my body and mind to limits that I never knew I was capable of. It’s overall challenging & rewarding. I am thankful for the impact it’s had on my life. It’s brought me new friendships & allowed me to help others. Crossfit has not just made me stronger physically, but mentally as well.

Least Fav Wod: anything with burpess, wall balls, thrusters, or front squats
Eating Style: macros with Geena! Just trying to be healthy
Splurge: hot chips, chocolate, easter Cadbury eggs (minis and creme). And to get my nails done!
Respected WODKilla: I just really started watching others during this last CrossFit open so I don’t know a lot outside of my gym. But I love to watch Bri Crimm compete. She’s so tiny and can do so much! But I love all my girls at the gym. They all work so hard and I look up to them. They are all great motivators for me to want to do better.
Favorite WOD Song: I can’t think of one but I do love a good christian song that can be a work out song, like you can’t stop me
Favorite Quote: the way I see it, if you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain.
Why CrossFit: I needed someone to keep me focused and doing things out of my comfort zone and push me, I was just doing cardio and to keep my weight off. But now I LOVE MY CROSSFIT FAMILY and that keeps me coming back.
Hometown: Baguio City, Philippines

Least favorite WOD: Anything with an assault bike
Eating Style: Caloric deficit. I eat everything in moderation
Splurge: Poke bowl and sushi
Respected WODkilla: Laura Kasperzak
Favorite WOD song: Anything Imagine Dragons and the like
Quote: “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take”
Why CrossFit: I enjoy group fitness classes but as I got stronger, I wanted to challenge my body. Plus, I want to do a Spartan race before I turn 40, and I’ve been wanting to do CrossFit for a while but was a little scared. I finally pulled the trigger and now I’m loving each workout (minus the bike of course! lol).
Hometown: Mobile, AL
Favorite WOD: Anything with deadlifts or power cleans
Least favorite WOD: If there are snatches or running, I hate it
Eating Style: Healthy- ish, heavy on the "ish", we do our best.
Splurge: COFFEE and candy
Respected WODkilla: Josie Hamming and Dani Speegle. They both prove that you can fit, muscular, and still be stunningly gorgeous. And a little weird
Favorite WOD song: The angrier the better. Emo, rock or rap, just depends on the mood of the day.
Quote: "There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living." - Nelson Mandela
Why CrossFit: I began CrossFit to simply loose weight, gain strength, "be healthy". CFS has given me friends that I get excited to see, they encourage me to do my best, finish the WOD, and never mind that I'm a little weird. So basically, go to the gym, and make friends that enjoy doing hard things. And stay weird.
