I fell in love with Crossfit over two years ago. I started coming as a way to fight depression without taking drugs. It worked as prescribed. The more I came the better I felt. Two months after I started, just as I was starting to see the anti-depressant benefits really kicking in, I got pregnant with our sixth child. I knew I had to keep coming, so I did. It was frustrating watching my ability decrease, and having to scale down more and more, but I was able to maintain a healthy pregnancy and still work on technique some.
Since the birth of my baby, I have loved being able to push myself to try a little harder and dig a little deeper to see what I can do. I really enjoy lifting, and have learned that with consistent practice, even an old dog can eventually learn a new trick – like double unders!
Comments From the Trainers-
Emily is a great athlete. She is the example of persistence equals payoff. Watching her grow bay #6 while busting out her moves on a daily basis was nothing short of amazing. And as she says she’s back and it won’t surprise anyone if we see her headed to the regionals and maybe the games some day!
