I needed something different than doing the same routine. I knew deep down I wanted to try but wasn’t sure if I should, especially with an injury before starting. Before Crossfit, I played soccer and basketball. Since starting Crossfit, I wouldn’t have thought I would have been able to lift as much as I have.

The coaches and those that participate in the class.

Be able to lift anything heavy, especially after my previous injury.

16. Tell us something about yourself that not a lot of people know about? The weirder the better. 🙂


People are surprised when they find out that I’m Mexican. And don’t ask me to translate, unless its American Sign Language.

Don’t be intimidated, its you vs you.
