  1. What is your favorite athletic/fitness memory or achievement?  First…my favorite memory- this is kind of funny and sad at the same time…the first class I ever attended at the gym, I made a major rookie mistake and thought boxjumps would be easy. Needless to say, my 3 inch vertical, dislocated ribs and 8 chiropractor visits disagreed with me! In terms of achievements, I feel very proud that I didn’t give up and have been coming to the gym for over a year now and that has resulted in significant fat loss, strength gains and the opportunity to meet countless new friends!
  2. Name one goal you hope to achieve this year at T-Town South Fitness? I have raised my expectations regarding attendance and want to make the 6am class at least 4 times per week unless I’m out of town.    I also have a goal to be able to do 5 strict pull ups by the end of the year. 
  3. What workout or movement do you look forward to the most? I actually look forward to Burpees! Don’t let my TTFIT class mates see this….it will ruin my reputation! 🙂
  4. What would surprise people most about you?  I have never been a morning person and I still have to go through mental gymnastics to get up at 5:30am to head to the gym!
  5. What is your favorite activity/hobbies?  I love spending time with my family and enjoy golfing and OU football. Also, I’m not sure if Tito’s vodka counts as a hobby so I’m leaving that off this question.
