Our June Athlete of the Month is Robbie Sons.
Robbie is one of our most consistent members in the 11:30 am class and her hard work has paid off! She participated in the Open this year and showed us all that she has been sandbagging her workouts in the gym because she killed it! Robbie has recently gotten pull-ups, TTB, and double unders. She doesn’t like the attention but we love shining the spotlight on her smiling face! :)
How long have you been Crossfitting?
1 ½ years
What made you start CF?
I wanted to try something different that would hold me more accountable and push me. Before Crossfit, I had only ever done group exercise classes where we never lifted over 30 pounds. I started with the Crossfit bootcamp that was held on the Acxiom Campus, then Kevin talked our group in to coming to the Crossfit gym.
What changes have you seen since starting CF?
I’m getting stronger 😊 As far as physical changes, I have lost around 12 pounds and a little over 2% body fat.
What is your favorite/least favorite movement?
Favorite: burpees and squats
Least Favorite: Running
What is your favorite part of CF Conway?
I really enjoy the group that I work out with. Everyone is always encouraging and pushes you a little further than you thought you could go.
What are your long term goals?
To do a STRICT PULLUP and to be able to lift above my body weight in all movements.
What advice do you have for people wanting to start CF?
Don’t go to just one class. Make a commitment to go for a few weeks before you decide if it’s for you or not.
