I was a part of CFR about 7 years ago. I left sometime during pregnancy and never quite made it back. I would come in here and there, but couldn’t quite get my feet under me. I’m finally ready to get back!
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
My first impression years ago was a definite feeling of rawness. I felt a lot of power in the workouts and a lot of intensity from the members. The community was still just as welcoming, because that is who Bill and Joyce are as people, but the community has changed as it has grown a lot. There is a lot more female energy in the gym these days and a much more diverse population of people working out together. That addictive intensity is still there, but it feels a little more accessible to me.
What are you currently working on?
I am working on my Toes to bar and I’m ready to start lifting heavy weight and not hold back so much.
What is the toughest part of CrossFit?
Those seasons where I’m not giving it my all and it feels like I’m not all there at the gym can be hard to stay motivated in.
What do you love most about CFR?
I love how we all intrinsically care about this very personal aspect of each other’s lives. We all notice when someone does something they have never done before. We all cheer for each other improving on jumping rope or lifting weights. I don’t think there is another area of my life where I would be cheered for, for doing something a little bit uncomfortable. The recognition is pretty radical to experience in the middle of an average, mundane work week. It helps me bring positivity to other areas of my life.
Adrienne has been back at the gym for 16 months now! We love having Adrienne, her husband, Nick and of course their daughter, here at the gym! Families that train together, grow strong together.
