How did you learn about CrossFit Warehouse? I moved to Oak Lawn in the fall of 2021 and was looking for a local box to give CrossFit a try. I read reviews, did a little Instagram stalking, and knew CFW would be the perfect fit for me. 

How has CrossFit Warehouse changed your life, lifestyle, and level of fitness? I’ve always loved sports and fitness, but CrossFit and the community itself have become such an important part of my life, in a way I never would’ve imagined. I feel challenged to continue learning new skills and getting stronger every day — while having some fun along the way. 34-year-old me is definitely fitter than 24-year-old me and I’m super proud of that progress.

List short/long term goals you would like to accomplish through CrossFit Warehouse: I’d love to try an Olympic lifting competition in the next 6 months! Working on gymnastics is always on my to-do list too.

 What do you like most about CrossFit Warehouse? The people, the coaches, the facility itself.

What is your favorite CrossFit movement? Cleans aka power Callines

What is your least favorite CrossFit movement? Single-unders (no surprise)

What movements would make up your Favorite WOD? Rope climbs, rowing & power snatches

What are you currently doing to try to improve your diet? I don’t officially track macros but I do try to hit a daily protein goal and focus on eating healthy meals during the week (but always have room for dessert)

Favorite movie: Home Alone, Twister, The Dark Knight, and basically anything with Jim Carrey

Favorite music artist/band: I listen to a little bit of everything from alt rock to EDM to hip-hop, but some of my favs are ODESZA, GriZ, Big Wild, Flume, Kendrick Lamar, RHCP, and The Black Keys

Favorite song to work out to: Lately it’s “Precision” by Big Sean 

Achievements you’d like to highlight within your life: I’m proud of the small wins every day that add up over time. Getting some steps in. Making someone laugh. Hitting a PR. Sleeping enough. Spending time with family & friends.

List a few things we don’t know about you: I lived in Minnesota for about 7 years, including college (hence why I talk funny). I’ve worked at my current company for 10 years this January. I’ve dropped in to CrossFit gyms in Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Hawaii, Ohio, Tennessee, and Florida. I have 0 pets but 5 indoor plants that I manage to keep alive. 

In 10 words or less, what does CF mean to you? Motivation to push yourself and pride in what you can accomplish

What advice would you give to someone looking to join Crossfit for the first time? I was incredibly intimidated and hesitant to join, but now I wish I would’ve started much sooner in my life. It doesn’t matter if you’re a fitness junkie or have never worked out before, this is for everyone.
