Q: What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?

Q: What was your first “bright spot”?
A: 5 strict push ups
Q: What’s your favorite CrossFit CTRL memory?”
A: My first CrossFit competition with Heather and Marcus. It was cold, rainy and I was so nervous about the workouts. Marcus helping me keep relaxed and having fun and Heather coaching and encouraging me when she knew I needed it. It was amazing the adrenaline, the teamwork and support! Learning that I can do so much more and that there is even more to learn.
Q: What do you love most about CrossFit CTRL? What keeps you coming back each month?
