going to do it

Q: What is the thing that has surprised you the most since you started CrossFit?
Angela: The mobility and the strength in my shoulders that I have gained with CrossFit.


Q: What advice do you have for beginners? What do you wish you would have known when you started?

Angela: Don’t be intimidated, ask questions, your coaches are here to help, and modify
movements as needed.

Q: Can you tell me an interesting fact about yourself?
Angela: I went back to school to get my bachelor’s degree when I had a 3-year-old, 5-year-old, and 7-year-old.

Great job Angela! Angela is a great example of someone with some pre-existing joint issues and injuries, that didn’t really believe she could do CrossFit at the beginning. Yet here she is 3 years later, coming almost every day, fitter, stronger, and healthier. Keep up the great work! – Coach Chris
