Rebekah Turner is our January Athlete of the Month!
In the little over a year that Rebekah has been doing CrossFit she has come such a long way! You can see her confidence build with each new movement she masters. After having a golf ball sized tumor removed from above her ear she was a little reluctant to get upside down. Recently she has been working on HSPU and I am quite sure she will get them and mark that off of her list as well!
I can’t wait to watch Rebekah in this years Open - she will be a force to be reckoned with for sure!
How long have you been Crossfitting?
About a year and three months
What made you start CF?
I completed a fitness challenge that Kevin led at Acxiom. The prize was a couple of Foundations-style classes. I tried it out and was instantly hooked!
What changes have you seen since starting CF?
I feel like I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been in - and that includes high school sports back in the day. Being able to carry our 4 year old around for an extended period of time, or run and play outside with the 8 year old are things that weren’t very easy before Crossfit. I’ve seen improvements not only physically, but mentally as well. It’s given me self-confidence and a better self-image — things I’ve always struggled with!
What is your favorite/least favorite movement?
Favorites would have to be rowing, DB snatch, and thrusters.Least favorites would be squat snatch, DUs, and HSPU. 🤮
What is your favorite part of CF Conway?
The coaches and the comradery. The coaches are knowledgeable and encouraging, and the class environment creates a team atmosphere that can’t be beat. Nobody finishes alone!
What are your long term goals?
Aside from the elusive goals like bar/ring muscle ups, just being able to maintain a healthy lifestyle is my biggest goal.
What advice do you have for people wanting to start CF?
