Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty:  I was initially intimidated by the idea of CrossFit and joining a gym, but that went away quickly after working with Cat on day one.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?  Benefits:  Eating my weight in food and beer on the weekends, but still fitting in my jeans :)  Accomplishments:  Handstand push-ups, ALMOST being able to do a strict pull-up without bands, and 110# power clean.

What are your individual goals?  Doing a competition without having to scale pull-ups or DUBs.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  Getting upside down on the wall for a HSPU.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? How helpful and attentive they are.  They only want to see you succeed and they'll do whatever it takes to get you there.  I also love how personable they are, they are more like friends to me.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started?  Just do it!  You won't regret it.
