Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty: I have known Dana since our high school days and when she told me she did CrossFit in Edwardsville, I was excited to try it out.  I had been doing CrossFit the last semester of undergrad and figured I would continue it in dental school.  My first day, all I remember is trying to remember everyone's name.  

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining? Being able to see an improvement both physically and mentally during the workouts.  I enjoy looking back on wodify and comparing my Olympic lifts and other workouts from when I began.

What are your individual goals? Someday get DUBS.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  Signing up for the Open last year and seeing where I compared to everyone else who was competing.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? How supportive they are everyday, especially for us morning people.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started? Take it slow, and give it time.  Change is not something you're going to see overnight but if you keep sticking with it, everything will get easier.

Tell us something we don't know about you?  I am a twin, not identical.

Favorite WOD?  Fight Gone Bad

Least Favorite WOD?   All of them right after I finish.
