ATHLETE OF THE MONTH

 
Meet this months Athlete of the month Corinne. You can always find Corinne working hard in the gym and striving to inspire others. Corinne has come a long way in the last year and we look forward to see her progress even more in the future. See below to learn a little more about Corinne.  How long have you been doing CrossFit? I actually did a try-it class about 5 months before I started officially ... 14 months. How long have you been at CRx ? Other than when I've been traveling, I've done all my CrossFit at CRx. What's your favorite workout? Least favorite workout? Favorite is anything that involves squats. Even with my #stupidkneeinjury. Least favorite is so much easier to figure out than favorite - running (there are only 2 reasons to run - hot guy ahead of me or scary guy chasing me). What is your athletic background ? I have ridden horses and competed in Dressage since I was young; a little more than two and a half years ago I started a fitness journey because I was morbidly obese. At the beginning I was challenged just by walking my pugs around the block. I built up slowly, was gifted an Ashley Horner system and won a "Transform You" challenge (and $3500!) which I used mostly to invest in my home gym. I plan to get a new horse and go back to competing in Dressage after I complete college. What has been your favorite CrossFit moment? (goals achieved , wods completed etc..) It has to be the first time I got pullups, in 17.2. I got 0 reps the first time I tried. But, with Malcolm, Tim and Alex under the rack with me, I got 11 the second time (there's an IG post about this :-)).

Coach'sTip. 

 

We had an outstanding week of maxes this week with many people adding 10-25 lbs onto their one rep maxes. This is outstanding! Great job to all however i wanted to bring up a concept that will affect all of us eventually at some point in our training. At what point do our mobility deficiences begin do detract from our absolute power. If the longer we can apply force the more force we can apply ; at what point do we need to add more range of motion? A number of us can fall into the category of over-powered under-mobile. Take the time before a workout to use a band to help your mobility. Find the time later in the day to reinforce your newly found range of motion. It's as simple as that, create new range and create more power potential. 

 
So many PR's!
