1. Why did you decide to join SRSC?

This was another step in my journey to cure my back pain. I was very hesitant because of all the publicity CrossFit gyms were getting for injuries in their clients. A friend was a CrossFitter in Healdsburg and recommended this gym because Joanna was so focused on form.

2. What has been your most memorable achievement since becoming a member?

My first double under was great. It earned me the right to buy fancy jump rope. I also love the fact that my back doesn’t hurt any more. I still have to put in the mobility work to keep it healthy but it feels 100% better!

3. Favorite and least favorite exercises?

I like handstand work and most of the body weight exercises. I am not a fan of lifting heavy weights.

4. Current goal(s) in the gym or in life?

I want to be strong enough to keep up with my kids. I want to be able to run/bike/swim until I am 100. I want to do an unassisted pull up-maybe some ninja warrior moves ?

5. What’s something that your gym mates would be surprised to know about you?

I am just as afraid of vampire, werewolves and goblins as my kids. I can not watch scary movies!
