April 2016 Athlete of the Month: April Kerr

Congratulations to our April 2016 Athlete of the Month!

April Kerr

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I am a Texan by birth, choice, and the grace of God. I grew up in the small country town of Bellville and moved to Kyle in December. I am former military. I love the outdoors and spending time with my family, which includes my fur baby (who loves going to CrossFit with me).

What brought you to CrossFit?

I like to work out but needed something more than a boring gym routine.

How long have you been doing CrossFit?

I have been doing CrossFit for a year and a half. Three months have been at CrossFit hays.

How has CrossFit changed your life, lifestyle, level of fitness?

CrossFit is like a family. There is always someone there to push you and support you. It’s my stress reliever. I have always been a very active person but CrossFit exposes my weaknesses and challenges me to continue to improve.

Favorite CrossFit lift/movement?

Pull-ups, burpees and just about any movement using your own body weight.

Least favorite CrossFit lift/movement?

Thrusters (does anyone like them?)

Name one goal and/or personal record you would like to accomplish through CrossFit.

Ring muscle-ups and handstand walks.

Do you have any advice for someone who is just starting CrossFit?

Never give up and just keep moving. Don’t compare yourself to others; compare yourself to the person you were yesterday.
