Meet this month’s Athlete of the month Corinne. You can always find Corinne working hard in the gym and striving to inspire others. Corinne has come a long way in the last year and we look forward to see her progress even more in the future. See below to learn a little more about Corinne.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I actually did a try-it class about 5 months before I started officially … 14 months.
How long have you been at CRx ?
Other than when I’ve been traveling, I’ve done all my CrossFit at CRx.
What’s your favorite workout? Least favorite workout?
Favorite is anything that involves squats. Even with my #stupidkneeinjury. Least favorite is so much easier to figure out than favorite – running (there are only 2 reasons to run – hot guy ahead of me or scary guy chasing me).
What is your athletic background ?
I have ridden horses and competed in Dressage since I was young; a little more than two and a half years ago I started a fitness journey because I was morbidly obese. At the beginning I was challenged just by walking my pugs around the block. I built up slowly, was gifted an Ashley Horner system and won a “Transform You” challenge (and $3500!) which I used mostly to invest in my home gym. I plan to get a new horse and go back to competing in Dressage after I complete college.
What has been your favorite CrossFit moment? (goals achieved , wods completed etc..)
It has to be the first time I got pullups, in 17.2. I got 0 reps the first time I tried. But, with Malcolm, Tim and Alex under the rack with me, I got 11 the second time (there’s an IG post about this :-)).
