September 2016 Athlete Spotlight

Shelly W.

  1. What is your favorite WOD(s) or Skill(s)?

I like the heavy weight WODS

  1. What WOD is at the bottom of your list?

RUNNING, I am just not built to run

  1. How would you describe your diet? (Paleo, Primal, Zone, Clean, etc.)

I try to eat clean, my schedule can be crazy and sometimes trying to stay clean is really tough.

  1. How did you hear about CrossFit Trenches?

I had a friend who introduced me to Trenches

  1. How long have you been doing CrossFit?

I started CrossFit at the YMCA in 2009. It was the only exercise I would not quit from getting bored.

  1. Describe your biggest milestone, achievement, or “A-ha” moment at CFT?

I just started getting my double unders and handstand push ups, I am super excited about both!

  1. What encouragement or advice would you give to new people coming in?

Don’t feel intimidated because you aren’t the RX queen/king. Remember you are there for your workout not someone else’s. A wise person once told me that everyone does Crossfit for their own reasons, each on a personal journey. That is absolutely correct. Come to Crossfit for YOUR journey and be proud to be you.

  1. What’s your favorite motivational quote and why?

In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.
