CFD’s August Athlete Spotlight


1.  How long have you been a member at CFD, and what made you want to get started?


August 1st will mark our two month anniversary at CFD.


2.  What changes have you seen in yourself since your very first day?


After two months we both feel stronger and slimmer.  More importantly than that, though, we both feel a new drive and passion for training.  


3.  What did you do for fitness prior to CFD, and what do you like most about CrossFit?


About three years ago we took up running to deal with our high energy dog.  On a whim we decided to run a marathon, which turned into two and a trek to Mount Everest Base Camp.  We have tried P90X and Insanity, but at the end of the day we weren’t seeing any consistent gains in strength and lean muscle mass.  Over the last year we have been lifting in our basement and doing simple, short met cons.  


Our favorite thing about CFD is the fact that Phil does all the programming, we just have to show up.  



4.  What type(s) of workouts are your favorite?


Andy:  At this point they’re all fun…ask me in 6 months.


Sarah: Ring Swings!


5.  What type(s) of workouts do you least like to see come up?


Andy: See above…


Sarah: Anything heavy and fast…and wall balls


6.  What are you goals going forward?


Stronger, leaner, improve technique and keep showing up.


7.  What advice do you have for someone just starting out at CFD?


Walk through the door and work hard, CFD continues to be an incredible community and we are both glad to have found it.
