Member of the Month
Our member of the month for December is Christina Carrillo! Christina has made so many lifestyle changes since starting at BrickYard. She is always ready to try something new with a smile on her face! Congratulations! Check out her interview below.
How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I've been at Brickyard for almost 2 years. I joined April 2015. I don't remember what the exact workout was, but it did include running and sit-ups! I was so out of shape, I felt like I was going to die! My stomach so much from the sit-ups, that I thought it hurt myself. Hahahah!!
How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
My previous lifestyle was so unhealthy! Exercise? I thought if I walked around the block, I did my exercise for the week! I didn't have respect for food, and never practiced portion control.
If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
The perfect workout would NOT include Wall Balls. But, would include power cleans, rowing, and handstand push-ups (they are a work in progress).
What animal best represents you today?
The animal that I feel best represents me would be an Owl. They are seen as protectors, have strong intuition, and are wise.
If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
The song that I would love to hear while working out, would be Killing in the Name of, by Rage Against the Machine.
If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
The best words to describe my lifestyle now would be Self Control, Aware, Strong, Happy Healthy.
What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Kinda sounds like a cliche, but all you have to do is give it a try. If it's not for you, you at least said YES! It took my sister a year to convince me to try a "free" class. That night I signed up for foundations, and I haven't looked back since. Step outside your comfort zone. I allowed myself to do that and I have met the greatest community of people who come from all walks of life, and my life is that much more enriched. I wouldn't have met some of the greatest coaches or people if I continued to say NO, but I decided to say YES!
