Member of the Month
Our member of the month for December is LENA!!! Lena has been working so hard and has made so many gains over the past year. We can not wait to see what 2016 bring for her. Here is her interview!
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
14 months as of January 16’ - I can’t believe it’s been over a year already!
God - yes I remember my first workout. Chelsea – as a freshy out of Jodi’s foundations classes. It was horrible despite aggressively scaling it down. I am now a believer of love at first defeat.
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
Oh boy… My previous lifestyle consisted of ultra-sedentary lounging, no real fitness goal or plan other than strictly weight loss, an occasional trip to the traditional gym down the road, and donuts. Needless to say there were a lot of imbalances that needed adjusting, and donuts. Fast-forward to today at BrickYard – life has changed quite a bit. I’m more balanced than I’ve ever been in and outside of the gym (work, school, etc.) and my eating has been on point (aka donut sober). Between the support and encouragement of the coaches and members here (Naughty Nooners, I love you all), falling out of routine has become more burdensome than showing up daily.
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself what would it be?
A combo of… a skill or two I dread, some movements I could improve my technique on, and a few movements I can perform with decency.
So… maybe a lil’ sunnin’ sunnin’ like…
18 min AMRAP:
250m row (Yippy!)
15 KB Swings
12 Squat Snatches
9 Squat Cleans
6 Burpee Box Jumps (Oy.)
4. What animal best represents you today?
GoToQuiz.com says I am a Silver and Red Wolf… sounds rad and the internet is always right - I’m rollin’ with it.
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
There’s nothing like “One Step Closer” by Linkin Park dropping in the middle of a rough workout to help push you through.
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Bacon. Bacon. Bacon. Bacon. Bacon.
Practice good habits: patiently, humbly
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Whoever you are, we’ll be happy to welcome you and more than stoked to workout alongside you. We all went through day number 1, and we’re here to be there for yours. And to those waiting to “feel” ready, lace up– that’s about as ready as you need to be to get the ball rolling.
