How Long Have You Been A Member At Cityside?
Quickly approaching the 2 year mark
What Made You Start CrossFit?
I moved to Houston for work 2.5 years ago, not knowing anyone. My motivation to start CrossFit was to both, try something new and physically challenging, but also to make friends. No one tells you how hard it is to make new friends as an adult! So, I figured why not give this CrossFit thing a try and see what happens. It was easily one of the best decisions I’ve made.

What Goals/Accomplishments Have You Achieved Since Joining?
Well…a slightly embarrassing story. Leila was coaching my first Cityside class and she asked me while we were squatting if I had any goals. At the time, I really wasn’t sure what a good goal for myself in the context of CrossFit even meant but I answered the question with “I just want to squat 100 lbs.” Leila didn’t bat an eye and just said “Right on, let’s do it!” I’m happy to confirm, I did indeed graduate from the training bar to squat over 100lbs. (Thank you Leila for not laughing😊)
What Are Your Future Goals?
Specifically, right now I’m working on handstand walks/push ups and snatches. But in general, I just want to stay healthy, be a well-rounded athlete, and do fun, challenging stuff with my friendz.
