JUNE 2015 ATHLETE OF THE MONTH – KATHERINE BINKLEY

Congratulations to Katherine Binkley!  She has been voted by the coaches as this month’s Athlete of the Month!  Katherine is one of those athletes whose dedication to her fitness has paid off in many ways.  As you can read in her story below, she was nervous when she first came, but quickly fell into stride and has loved classes!   She’s put in a ton of work to earn this honor and is certainly deserving of the title “Athlete of the Month.”

Name: Katherine Binkley

Started CrossFit: June 2014

Favorite WOD: Partner WODs… particularly on days I’m tired or drained.  Having a partner helps push me that extra little bit I need!  Oh and I love to hate endurance days 🙂 

Least Favorite WOD: anything involving pull-ups and push-ups

Favorite Lift: Cleans or Deadlifts

Least Favorite Lift: OHS and Snatch… sorry Nick… I’m working on them!

Story: In June 2014, I finally decided to try Crossfit.  I had heard about it for years, but could never find the courage to actually go to a class.  My boyfriend has been going to a another CrossFit gym  for years and he finally talked me into trying a class and finding my own gym where I would be comfortable (now I’m trying to convince him to join Mission!).  To say that I was intimidated my first day would be the biggest understatement of the year!  I definitely fell into that category of people who thought that I wasn’t in shape enough, not enough of an athlete, not competitive enough, etc. for CrossFit.  To my complete surprise, I was wrong.  Not only could I complete the workouts and even liked them, but it also turns out I’m slightly more competitive than I thought 🙂  Add that with the amazing community at Mission and now I look forward to that hour of my day and miss it on days I rest or have other things going on.  Above all, I have to give a shout out to my 6:30pm classmates and coaches… they definitely motivate me and we help hold each other accountable!  6:30 = Best 30!
