0 Comments

 

It’s time to honor our April Member of the Month… the one… the only… JJ! She is quiet, and down right deadly when it comes to strength and grit. A night owl of West Seattle, don’t miss her favorite spot- she’s right, the food is amazing! Anyone else do 75 burpees just because…? See? She’s a force!

What made you come walking through the doors at CFWS? It was the Google reviews, location and the vibe when I walked through the doors. Also I could go grocery shopping after a workout.

How long have you been a member? I have been a member since September 2015.

When you show up for the daily WOD, your fingers are crossed that it will include? I really like burpees,  snatches and rowing… when I am feeling like a homebody and want to hangout with my pups, me and my boyfriend do burpee competitions. (He always beats me to 50 by 4 or 5 but I ALWAYS beat him in amount. I reach my runners high at 75)

Won’t include? Thrusters, wall balls and jumping over something…. thrusters are the Diablo… I just think about how my butt will look after.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? I actually never wanted to have job growing up as a kid, I enjoyed being a kid and living off my parents. But I when I first went to college I settled on being a biology/biochem major because I wanted to work in a makeup laboratory.

If you can have any super power, what would it be? Teleportation. I like to travel and I could be anywhere in a moments notice.

A place in the world you want to travel to? To the Maldives and stay in a hotel underwater.

A fun fact most at the gym don’t know about you? I actually met my doppelganger and we are bestfriends  I went to UT-Knoxville for few years and we met in the library pulling an all nighter.  She is half Puerto Rican like me, curly hair and has big hips. She is a beautiful human being and we actually still talk on a weekly basis.
Your favorite West Seattle spot we should all try? Itto’s for sure. I’m a regular there. Delicious food, Great drinks, Great service.
Advice you would give to a new member just starting their CrossFit journey? Just do it… you don’t know how strong you can become mentally or physically until you challenge yourself on a regular basis…when you first join crossfit there is anxiety and doubtfulness when you see the WOD, but that fades and there becomes a point when you get excited when you read the WOD.
