Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty: I was nervous and didn't know what to expect.  I just wanted to get through the first WOD alive and not embarrass myself!  The coaches and fellow athletes were so welcoming and supportive.  By the end of the first workout I felt completely confident that I was going to get fit and become an athlete again.

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining? I feel 15 years younger and 20 pounds lighter.  I've started riding my bike frequently for longer distances and I've gained hours a day in extra energy.  I'm motivated and inspired to keep pushing myself and to do things I haven't felt like doing for a long time!

What are your individual goals? I'd like to drop some more weight but most-importantly I just want to keep improving and feel good.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  Flipping tires on a Friday afternoon.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? Everyone on the coaching staff is very knowledgeable and they take the time to help you reach your goals.  They're great at educating you on form and consistently helping to motivate you to push yourself for improvement.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started? What are you waiting for?

Tell us something we don't know about you?  I'm an eternal optimist.

Favorite WOD?  Any partner WOD

Least Favorite WOD?  Anything that involves excessive running but I'm working on that!
