MEMBER HIGHLIGHT – MEET SARAH!

Sarah has been with CrossFit Slipstream for almost a year!  She is very strong and athletic!  It is inspiring to watch her lift the barbell!  We love having her at CrossFit Slipstream!
1. Why did you decide to try CrossFit?
I started CrossFit to get in shape! I wanted to find something that would actually stick, and now it’s become somewhat of an addiction! I had a gym membership prior to joining CrossFit with the occasional training session, but I found that when I actually did attend the gym (albeit not very regularly) I didn’t get much out of it. I’m not one to motivate myself enough to get a quality workout when I’m the only one to hold myself accountable. 
2. How has having a CrossFit coach changed your workout or fitness results?
I think it’s pretty fantastic to have someone motivating you to reach your personal best! The trainers are all great about scaling the workout to meet your needs and abilities. It’s also comforting to know that someone is always there to correct your form if need be. Again, I lack self motivation, so having someone to encourage me to keep going is exactly what I need! 
3. How has doing CrossFit affected your health and/or life?
I feel like I have more energy in my day to day life. I started off with the New You Challenge which was a great program for easing into CrossFit WODs. The New You Challenge also incorporated a nutrition program which kept me accountable for what I was doing outside of the gym. Even after the challenge, as a member you have regular consults with Susan and John which are helpful to keep you on track to reach your fitness and nutrition goals. I also now have PERFECT form for carrying 50 lb boxes of clay, thanks to CrossFit! 
4. What is your favorite CrossFit movement?
Tire flips, they make me feel like a beast! 
5. What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
The trainers meet you where you are, it’s a pressure free and safe environment!
It’s a really encouraging and motivating community to be a part of! 
CrossFit should come with a Surgeon General’s warning, it’s pretty addicting!
