Introducing our very own Lori Newton! September MVP at Jefferson City CrossFit. I will never forget the first time her and her two daughters Dakota and Meg showed up at a 5pm class to “try it out”. We had a timed side shuttle run, which you could already see their game faces were on! They did a scaled version of the workout doing wall balls in place of thrusters! Once finished you could tell by the looks on their faces they were already addicted to CF! She also has the most beautiful straight legged sit ups you will set eyes on! Lori, we are so happy that you are part of our Jefferson City CrossFit Family! Thank you!
Family: Aaron is my husband, and I have (3) daughters, Missy 24, Dakota 17, Megan 15
What is your greatest accomplishment at the box?: Climbing the rope!
Do you have a favorite memory at the box?: I have lots! It has been pretty cool to be able to work out with Megs. I miss having her there with me while she has softball.
Favorite weightlifting movement and Why?: Squat Snatch, because it took so long for me to get the hang of it.
Deadlift or Power Clean and Why?: Power Clean. They are just fun when everything goes right!
Wall balls or Burpees and Why?: Most definately burpees. Lesser of two evils.
Favorite Shoes to work out in: Nike Free
If you could give any advice for a person new to CrossFit, what would it be?: Drink lots of water and static stretch!! It really will make a huge difference how you feel the next few days after a hard work out!
Goals in the future with your CrossFit adventure: Now that I feel comfortable with my technique on the olympic lifts, I can concentrate on increasing my weight!
What is one thing that people who know you, may not “know” about you? I like really boring history stuff: ( no, reallllly boring to normal people, like reading 7th century manuscripts on theology)
Favorite past time outside of CrossFit: I love to read
Favorite Food: My mom’s green chili.
Favorite Beverage: coffee, black
