If you haven’t already, meet Julia! Read about why Julia started CrossFit, what she likes most about the sport and her biggest accomplishment so far here at CrossFit DelVal!
Q: Why did you join CrossFit Delaware Valley?
A: I joined CrossFit kind of unexpectedly. I was looking for a way to get fit and feel stronger, but I didn’t want to just get another gym membership. I tried that before but could never stick with it. I had heard of CrossFit and found DelVal online. I came in one day to meet with Rob. He just explained everything really and I just thought, “why not!” And signed up without even watching a class. I’m usually more of a think it over type of person so after I left that day I was really nervous to start, but it was definitely a good decision.
Q: What's been your biggest accomplishment?
A: My biggest accomplishment is that I’m a couple months in and I’m still coming to class regularly. Some weeks are better than others, but I am usually in class 3 times a week. This is big for me as I have always had trouble sticking with any other fitness routine I’ve tried.
Q:What are you working on now?
A: There’s a lot that I’m working on now. I’m trying to keep up stamina especially when there’s a run involved. I’m also working on double unders and getting some of the weight lifting movements down so I can start adding more weight.
Q: What's your favorite CrossFit Delaware Valley memory?
A: My favorite memory is hard to choose because I’ve met a lot of really supportive people that have went out of their way to introduce themselves or help me. One time that sticks out was a WOD with 100 burpees. I was really struggling and was the last one left to finish. Coach Jacki asked me how many I had left and did them with me.
Q: What motivates you to continue training at CrossFit Delaware Valley?
A: I’m motivated to keep training at CrossFit because it’s different every workout. I don’t get bored because it’s truly never the same routine and there’s so much to learn and work on. Another reason I’ll keep training at CrossFit DelVal is the coaches. They all really want to help you get the most out of every movement which helps me put in the most effort. Joining CrossFit DelVal has been a great experience and I’m looking forward to working hard and continuing to improve!
