What was your athletic background, if any?

 I played a lot of sports growing up such as basketball, volleyball, swim team, and tennis. 

What do you do when you're not at CFA?

I am just being a mom getting my kids to where ever they need to be and work.

When did you realize that CrossFit is right for you?

When no matter how sore I was from a previous workout I always mange to go back the next day.

Do you remember your first WOD?

No but I remember struggling to get through it.

What is your favorite or least favorite WOD/movement?

 Least favorite burpees and favorite has to be anything with lifting weights.  I love the challenge of trying to improve my pr’s.

What is the one thing you have done at CFA that you never thought you would do?

Complete a Tough Mudder course, and finally being able to do double unders and pull-ups.

What motivates you during a tough workout?

The people I work out with and trying to improve reps or time.

What's are your favorite things about CrossFit?

I love the atmosphere and the people I work out with.  The feeling of accomplishment I get after a workout.

What are your short term and long term goals?

Short term is to pr my back squat over 250lbs and long term goals would have to be able to climb the rope and handstand pushups.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit (before/after)?

I have more self-confidence and I am the strongest I have ever been. 

Do you have any advice for people just getting started at CFA? 

It is not going to be easy but the more you do the better you will be.  Don’t give up and see how much you will change for the better along the way.

Coach's comment:

Jennifer has been with us for almost two years now and we have really seen a big change in her since starting. I cannot think of one area of her fitness that has not improved immensely. Jennifer is one of the strongest women and moms at the gym and she has been to every CFA event I can think of from the open “Friday night lights”, kickball, beach wod, in-house competition and she even crushed the Tough Mudder! She really does not like burpees but get a barbell in her hand and she will have a blast. We are excited to see Jennifer progress and continue to challenge herself as she keeps with her CrossFit journey. - Coach Josh
