Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty:  First day I met Coach Dana and was very impressed with her knowledge, motivation and genuine care.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining? I'm refreshed.  I started at CrossFit because I felt burned out because I was always at the gym.

What are your individual goals?  I want to improve my weakest areas; cleans, snatches, double unders, handstand pushups.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  When Mercedes called me over to witness her PR box jump.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? The coaches are positive and make me feel comfortable even when I'm not happy with my performance.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started?  If you want to change you must be challenged, so don't be afraid the coaches and members are here to support.

Tell us something we don't know about you?  It's against stereotypes but I love my 2 cats.

Favorite WOD?  Any without burpees.

Least Favorite WOD? Any with burpees, even though I know it's good to push out of my comfort zone.
