When and how did you get started with us? June 2019, spoke with Jill West about it at a baseball game.
Favorite Lift: front and back squats

Favorite Meal: healthy- salmon and asparagus, unhealthy- pizza!
Favorite Beverage: Healthy-that O2 water is really good, unhealthy-gin and tonic
Funniest memory at the box:
Jincy V getting her groove on to old school tunes!
What class time do you usually attend and what is the favorite part about that class? 5:30 pm – the people in it and the instructors😊 I never feel intimidated.
What is one thing that most people do not know about you? I have a sister that has won masters CrossFit competitions for her snatch lift. ( We can’t wait to meet her!)
Tell us some about your journey, greatest accomplishments. Starting out was the hardest but I really enjoy this box. The trainers are great at making sure you are safe with movements, so far, greatest accomplishment is getting a few double unders.
If you could give any advice for a person new to CrossFit, what would it be?: It may look hard and it is, but ANYONE can do it!
Please list two future goals. 6 months—run more. and One year: be able to do more than 2-3 double unders at a time.
