How long have you been a member at 1020?  1 Month, I was also a member last summer for a few months (had to quit because of medical reasons)

Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty: The first day I walked in was actually not for a workout, I was with Emily and she was dropping something off for Dana.  I watched the workout that was going on at that time and decided it looked like a really fun and cool way to work out, and I was right!

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining?  Every time that I complete a WOD I feel like I accomplish something new!  I am getting into better shape, increasing my endurance, and overall feel better.

What are your individual goals? Right now my goals are to increase my core strength and be able to complete a WOD without taking breaks.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  Probably my favorite moment so far has been my first WOD after rejoining, it felt so good to be back.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? How supportive all the coaches are!  They understand my limits and find ways to help me complete the workout at a level I am comfortable with.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started? Just do it!  It is a really fun way to work out and anyone can do it!

Tell us something we don't know about you?  I don't have a colon anymore :)

Favorite WOD?  I loved the DT WOD because it was all lifting.

Least Favorite WOD?  Karabell
