Athlete Spotlight: Judy R.

Hometown:  Fairbanks, Alaska

Age: 55

Profession: Retired

What did you do for fitness before CrossFit?  Tennis, walking & riding bikes.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? A friend told me she was going to the masters class, that sounded safe to me. I’ve done other exercise classes with younger kids and have hurt myself.

What was your first workout and how did it go?  We carried weights around the outside of the warehouse.

How did you feel after? I couldn’t wait to come back.

Favorite CF Movements: The endurance builder sections

Least Favorite Movements: Push-ups

Favorite Cheat Meal: Deep fried halibut & french fries

Favorite Paleo Meal: We eat a lot of fresh salmon, halibut & moose meat that we bring down from Alaska. So any one of those with fresh green beans.

What’s one thing that most people don’t know about you? I shot a moose 2 years ago.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)?  I’m standing up straighter and see muscle lines in my arms and legs. Oh and my tennis game is much better.

What sort of unexpected changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit? My commitment to myself is back to being a priority. I lost that the past few years.

Any advice for people just getting started or new to CrossFit? Go slow, you’ll hurt some days, but it’s a good hurt.

What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit? Camping and hiking in Alaska, but not here. I hate snakes.
