Member of the Month
Our Member of the month for January is Carissa Gonell! Carissa has been a member of BrickYard from the very beginning! She has been working extra hard lately to make sure she gets her WODs in while keeping her diet on point! Congratulations! Check out her interview below.
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
Since the beginning! Member #25 I believe
I don’t remember what the WOD was but I remember feeling like I found a home. A home with great programming
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
I started CF in 2010. Prior to that I had taken classes casually and gone to the gym when convenient but was never really committed to fitness or a healthy lifestyle. I was actually the most sedentary and overweight I had ever been in my life when I decided to take the plunge and try crossfit.
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
Please see 9/2/2016 WOD! I split it into something I love, something I hate and something I want to be better at. Can’t wait to do it again and see how much I’ve improved!
4. What animal best represents you today?
According to spiritanimal.info a hummingbird…
“This fascinating bird is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size”
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
Apparently anything form the jock jams station
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
You can’t think about crossfit as going to the gym or a couple classes to get in shape. I think as a society we invest in short term endeavors to improve a portion of our lives we aren’t happy with…. This is not crossfit. Once you start you can’t stop! I’ve had bumps along the road and if it was JUST a gym I’d probably be doing something else. But this is a community, a lifestyle, a family. You will get more support than you can imagine. You will build relationships. And have a healthier, happier life! So get in there!
