–Emily, what are your goals?

“I really just want to be the best version of myself. I want to be strong and healthy inside and out! More specifically, I hope to use my training at Cross Fit to complete the Spartan Trifecta next year.

–Why do you love coming to CFS?

“The very first time I walked into the box I was nervous. That did not last long as I immediately felt welcomed. CFS is a community of athletes that encourages and supports each other inside and outside of the gym. It’s a family and I love that! From the perspective of fitness I love that every day is different. I never get bored and I am always challenged. The coaches willingly work with everyone based on the individuals level of skill. They push you out of your comfort zone. CFS is teaching me a lot about myself and what I am capable of. Favorite quote from Phil: “Everything you’ve got. Right here. Right now.”

–What is your favorite movement?  “The back squat”

— What about your favorite WOD?

“Honestly, MURPH. There is so much meaning behind that workout and it challenges you to your core. If our military can put their lives on the line for our freedom- I can push myself through Murph to honor them.”
