AUGUST 2014 – VICKI HART

 In Athlete of the Month

“I am very honored to have been chosen the athlete of the month. For years my husband Spence had been after me to join crossfit. I’ll admit I probably had the issues most women had about crossfit. I have no clue about weight lifting and how is it going to effect my body? All pretty scary. We were in the middle of a big change in our lives. After living in Delaware for 23 years we were moving to Maryland because of a better job opportunity for Spence. I figured everything in our lives was going to be new, why not start fresh with how I worked out. Let me give crossfit a try.   Took the on ramp classes and discovered that there were a variety of different movements, so there was no way I would get bored like I had with other workout programs. Once I did my first WOD, I was hooked. It is funny I still remember that date, June 20th 2013. Really liked how WOD’s could be scaled to your ability and you still get a great workout. There have been a few WOD’s I did at RX level. Each time we have done the crossfit totals I see improvements. This past one I had 10 pound PR’s on each movement. Still working on double unders, me and jump roping have never been on good terms.   A special thanks to all the coaches. I have learned a lot from each one. They go me used to lifting the weights that I feared so much in the beginning. Taking their time to correct my form and push me when I needed it. I have become a regular for the Ruckfit and Kettlebell classes. I also enjoy Coach Tony’s monthly challenges. All have bettered my pull ups, push ups, and strict press.   After a year of crossfit my body has changed a lot. I now have big thighs, arms, shoulders, and a kettle booty. Shopping for a crossfit body isn’t easy but I have found a few brands that fit. I am embracing this new body cause there is no way I am stopping crossfit. I am addicted.” photo-7
