A few words from Karen:
When did you become a member at WC? June 2017
What do you do when you're not at WC? Spend time with my family, enjoy fine wine, golf, bike, and travel.
When did you realize crossfit is right for you?
It was pretty evident with in a few weeks this was the right mix for me. The level of variety in movements, challenge, supportive coaches who encourage you- it was a perfect mix.
What's your favorite WOD/movement? I enjoy squats of all types- air, back, front.
What's your least favorite WOD/movement? 1 arm-DB Overhead squats
What is one thing you have done at WC that you never thought u would do?
Running. Thinking back to the first run (so bad) and now being able to do a mile or two in a WOD is a win and maybe one day I will even enjoying running : )
What motivates you during a WOD?
I am super motivated by growing older and staying healthy so I can travel and enjoy my family. I want to be traveling the globe, golfing, hiking and biking all the way to the end.
What is something about yourself we may not know?
I have two children in college, married to my high school sweetheart, go to 24/2 Church and have 3 cats.
What advice would you give someone just getting started with crossfit?
You made the right choice. Fight the voice in your head telling you its too hard, your too old, out of shape or too busy. Its one hour of your day and a life time of benefits.
