Congrats to Jen for being Octobers Athlete of the Month! Jen always has a smile on her face, works hard every time she is in the gym and has done a few novice CrossFit Competitions and has never felt better! Read below to read more about Jen!
How were you introduced to Max Effort Fitness?
I was at the pool with a friend and asked how her arms and shoulders got so toned. She told me about MEF and suggested that I check it out. I was scared to death but I'm so glad that I went.
What is your proudest accomplishment since being a member at MEF?
Finishing my first competition. I will never forget that feeling.
What is your biggest improvement since joining MEF?
Everything has improved! I didn't know how to do any of the movements. But the things that stick out most to me are box jumps or push-ups. I couldn't do either when I started.
What is your six month goal? To keep challenging myself and stop saying that I "can't" do something. And to get a strict pull up!
What is your favorite exercise?
I love the Olympic lift, Power cleans
What is your least favorite exercise?
Running!! I really struggle with it.
If you created a workout, what would it be?
I am not good at creating workouts...that's why I go to MEF! Ha! My favorite would be a day where we work on cleans and pull-ups.
What is your Favorite cheat food?
Do margaritas count as food?? Definitely Mexican food.
What do you love most about Max Effort Fitness?
I love the atmosphere and how supportive everyone is. I've met some of the greatest people and I really feel encouraged there. It's completely changed how I see myself and my belief in what I'm capable of doing.
