How long have you been a member at Ten Twenty?  5 months

Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty.  Meghan was making fun of me because I was taking a snapchat of the marquee and sending it to my friends saying “Ready to break all of my bones” (I’m very clumsy).

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?   I would say that my coordination has improved, but the coaches might say otherwise.  In all seriousness, my overall strength and endurance have greatly improved. I have never been athletic and I am surprised every day at what I can do now that I could never do before.

Favorite moment at Ten Twenty so far?  There are so many. From meeting new friends, to PR’s , to really funny group warm ups. I really enjoy every day and I think that the community is a huge part of that.

What do you enjoy most about the coaching staff at Ten Twenty?  Their dedication to seeing everyone succeed and how personable they are. I’ve had coaches on their day off that were just there to work out, stop in the middle of their workout to come over and offer me advice and help. I have dropped in a few other gyms and I would say nothing beats the coaching staff at 1020.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started?  I would say especially for those who fail to find a consistent gym routine and get burned out to give CrossFit a try. I used to dread going to the gym and I now I dread rest days.

Tell us something we don’t know about you?  Most people at the box don’t know I am a vegetarian.

Favorite WOD? Grace

Least Favorite WOD? Anything with Wall balls.
