First CrossFit WOD (besides Baseline and Fundamentals):
Can’t remember exactly, but within my first week, we did “Angie”! OMG!!! But I lived through it to tell my tale!
First thought after First CrossFit WOD: “What did I get myself into?!?!?”
Before CrossFit I did:
Running, circuit weight training, Zumba
Favorite CrossFit exercise: I like doing thrusters and squats!
Least favorite CrossFit exercise: Toss up between burpees and and overhead squats!
I love Kitsap CrossFit because: Of the coaches and their encouraging coaching methods. For my fellow gym mates whom are so welcoming, encouraging, and inspiring. For the strong sense of community and their dedication to improving health across the lifespan, from the young to the elderly, very inclusive! Love it!
Most surprising accomplishment: being able to do handstand and not getting dizzy or throwing up afterwards!!!!
Short Term Goals: To be able to do strict pull ups
Long Term: Hiking, gardening, reading, antiquing!
Favorite food: I’m not a picky eater, but I love baked salmon
(share something interesting we haven’t covered) I am the 7th child out of 8 children. Grew up in the Philippines, in a house with a dirt first floor, without plumbing or electricity! Immigrated with my family to Guam at age 12, completed my associate degree in nursing there. My hubby, 2 kids, and I moved to Washington in 1990. Lived in Germany for 3 1/2 years and traveled around Europe then returned in 2003. Finally went back to school and completed my BSN and MN from UW. My husband, daughter, and son are all in the Army. I currently work at Harrison. We are expecting our first grandchild!
