What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?

Our daughter, Jess Bassi, had been asking us to try it for at least 3 years and I have to admit I was very intimidated by it.  When CFR offered the Commit to Fit program Jess talked me into giving it a try.  I remember telling Jess I would do it if we weren't going to do that "CrossFit stuff" because I wasn't trying to die.  We started to integrate CrossFit moves into the workout and by the time the program was over I was hooked.

What was your first impression? How has that changed?

That it's not a competition.  Everyone is so supportive of each other and friendly.

What was your first “bright spot”?

The first time I did the tire flip!  That was awesome!

What are you working on now?

I've just begun working on kipping.  I want to be able to do a pull up and it may take me a year to get there but I won't stop trying!

What’s your favorite CrossFit Reanimated memory?

Completing my first "family" workout with Lance, Jess and Peter.
