ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT: MAY 2017

You usually can find Jaime  at our 730 pm class in Mahopac or kicking butt in CrossFit Lite. She is an ultrasound tech & ‘Mom’ to her cute little pup Sassy. Jaime is always pushing herself & never says ‘I can’t’. She always tries her hardest even when the task seems impossible. Watching her climb breakneck Ridge for the first time & completing her first ‘Murph’ are testaments that you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.

What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
My weight was spinning out of control and I hated going to the “gym” because I never knew what to do when I got there. I wanted something I can stick with and have fun doing it.

What was your first impression?
My first impression was that I couldn’t handle these types of workouts because I was so out of shape but I kept with it and they got easier to handle.

What was your First “bright spot” (awesome moment)?
My first awesome moment with Crossfit was completing “Murph” last year. That was a real struggle but I completed the whole workout! A special thanks to those who pushed me to the finish line!!

What are you working on now?
I am working on clean eating and a pull up with less bands.

What’s your favorite Elite Progression memory?
I can’t pick one, too many! I love my CrossFit family because we have a blast all while getting our butts kicked day in and day out.

Hobbies outside of CrossFit?
I LOVE traveling. I also love hanging out with my nieces/dog and going on my quad.

Fav & Least fav movement?
My favorite is the deadlift and my least favorite would have to be the snatch. Oh and I hate burpees!

Advice for people looking to start?
Just do it! Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Prove people wrong and work on a healthier you.
