Congratulations to our August 2016 Athlete of the Month!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I’m originally from Laredo, TX and have resided in Austin, TX for the past 14 years. I graduated from Texas State University with a Music Education degree. I taught at Austin ISD and Manor ISD; I’m currently employed with KIPP Austin Public Schools. Also, I’m a vocalist and trumpet player for Mariachi Relampago. On my time off, I enjoy riding my motorcycle.
What brought you to CrossFit?
On my way home, I’d always see CrossFit Hays so I decided to stop by and inquire about it. I was tired of constantly feeling exhausted and lethargic throughout the day. I’ve heard great things about CrossFit and decided to give it a shot. I was never athletic in high school or college so this was a whole new experience for me. After attending several classes, I realized CrossFit worked the entire body and the workouts were fun. The coaches and athletes at CrossFit Hays are always supportive and encouraging.
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
How has CrossFit changed your life, lifestyle, level of fitness?
CrossFit has changed my life physically and mentally. Not only am I aware of the type of foods I consume, but CrossFit has boosted my self-esteem. I’ve lost close to 15 lbs. and feel great!
