Oh good old Fran. For those who aren’t familiar with Fran, it is a benchmark workout in the sport of CrossFit that is well known and absolutely awful. The workout is 21-15-9 of thrusters (95/65#) and pull-ups and it crushes your soul. Or at least it crushed my soul last night… It takes everything in you to push your hardest and enter the pain cave to go unbroken and get a sub 3:00 time. My previous time was 3:06 and I wanted sub 3:00 BAD. And I did it!! I had the support of my sister, my dad, and a bunch of my athletes from CrossFit Q! It’s crazy how your body adapts and changes over time without you realizing just how dramatic that change is. Fran is just one of the measures of fitness in this sport but this proves just how much it works.. how i’ve changed.. how i’ve grown… become stronger.. better.. faster.
Pictures below are proof that CrossFit and lifting weights has changed my life in all aspects. From my first week at CrossFit Q in February to today.. almost 3 years into this sport. It simply changes you. You become better. Your body works to meet the constantly varied demands.. it adapts, evolves, develops. Aside from the physical changes, it has made me into the person I am today. I have grown mentally, spiritually, & emotionally as well. I have learned so much, discovered my greatest passion, & made it a lifestyle. And I'm pretty damn lucky that I get to wake up every day and help others do the same.
I love this sport so much. I would be nothing without it. I feel so lucky that my parents opened CrossFit Q in February of 2014 which started this crazy journey for me and allowed me to be where I am at today. Forever grateful. Forever blessed. Forever humble.
I am passionate about creating a healthy lifestyle for myself & helping those around me.
