Great job Lesley!!!
Athlete of the Month – September 2012
Name: Lesley Lilly
Started CrossFit: Jan 2012
Favorite WOD: anything with rope climbs, pull-ups or handstand push-ups!
Least Favorite WOD: anything with burpees. Jeebus. I did a 7 min burpee test that would probably take the cake for least favorite WOD.
Favorite Lift: Deadlift
Least Favorite Lift: Snatches!! Snatches is an eight-letter word. Which makes it twice as bad as a four-letter word.
I started crossfit looking to try a new fitness routine. I was getting bored with traditional workouts that consisted mostly of running and lifting free weights. My first crossfit workout was Fran – and I did it Rx!!! I was hooked. Crossfit has introduced me to a lot of new fitness elements, like Olympic lifting and gymnastics type exercises like muscle ups. I still have much to learn and improve, but I’ve got my goal set on competing in regionals next year! Getting the courage up to walk into a crossfit gym for the first time has been the best decision I’ve ever made about my fitness. And most importantly, I love the community of like-minded people I’ve met in my crossfit journey!
