10 months


What made you start CF?
I started CF with 6 weeks new you challenge and during that seeing all people around lifting heavy weight and doing complex movements encouraged me to start CF.

What changes have you seen since starting CF?
After starting CF, I am more physically fit. I feel more energetic. I learned a better way to lift heavy things in day to day life, by using legs rather than bending the back.😀. I am in better shape than I have been before.

What is your favorite/least favorite movement?
Favorite: Burpee and HSPU (Still need to get better though)
Least favorite: Power Snatch Squat/ Overhead Squat.

What is your favorite part of CF Conway?
The People. I have made lots of friends here. Where can you get this, "make FRIENDS while getting FIT", isn't it cool! That, and all the Coaches, who helped me to learn and master every movement.

What are your long-term goals?
Learn the gymnastic movement, to do in more better and smoother way. Do all events, maybe, in next Crossfit Open at RX level,

What advice do you have for people wanting to start CF?
Don't think too much about starting it. You will definitely see the change in yourself. It's the best way to get into total body fitness regardless of your skill level.
