We asked Fixx athlete, Abby Cleveland, a few questions about her CrossFit journey…
What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
“I had a desire to get back into a gym. I knew that CrossFit is a great all over body workout. I missed that feeling of a “good” soreness that comes with changing your body.”
What was your first impression? How has that changed?
“When I came first in for my trial class, I was a bit intimidated. Then, found out how friendly the athletes and coaches are. The coaches always do a fabulous job of making modifications to help me challenge myself.”
What was your first “bright spot”? (Positive moment)
“I climbed the rope!!! After being coached on the technique to use, I was successful!”
What are you working on now?
“I’m always striving to become stronger and build muscle.”
What is your favorite FIXX memory?
“A favorite memory is walking into a 5am class and Brice asking, “What brings you in so early?” My response, “I don’t know?”, 5am is crazy early!!!…but REALLY it was because I couldn’t go to my preferred 6 am class, and I didn’t want to miss out on a workout.”
Do you have a favorite movement? Favorite WOD?
“I LOVE to jump rope!!! So that being said, any WOD’s that include jumping rope are my fav! It makes me feel young and it’s fun!”
