What better way to celebrate a birthday than with a Member Spotlight! This month’s member spotlight is none-other than Lauren Willet! Lauren first came to CrossFit Bensalem in Decemeber and this April competed in her first CrossFit competition, the Festivus Games. We couldn’t be more proud…
CrossFit Bensalem – How long have you been coming to CrossFit Bensalem and what got you started?
Lauren Willet – I’ve been coming to CFB since late December. I kept seeing CrossFit all over the place and I was tired of the regular gyms so I figured I’d try it out.
CFB – What did you think after your first WOD?
LW – I was exhausted! But I knew I was hooked.
CFB – Do you have a favorite song to workout to?
LW – No favorite song, just anything really loud that gets me pumped up.
CFB – What is your favorite WOD or CrossFit movement?
LW – Hm thats tough. Lately I’ve been working a lot on handstands and getting to my HSPU’s. But I always like doing Split Jerks.
CFB – What has CrossFit changed about your life?
LW – Not to be cliche, but CrossFit definitely changed my life. Everyday I feel stronger and get more endurance. I love our Box and all the new friends I’ve made there!
CFB – What do you like to do when you’re not in the gym?
LW – I always love being back home in the Poconos, relaxing and being in the garden.
CFB – Something we might not know about you?
LW – Well most people know I’ve been a vegetarian for a long time. But I am going back to school to be a Dental Hygienist!
CFB – What is your 6 month goal?
LW – My 6th month goal is to just keep coming as much as possible and keep setting new goals for myself.
CFB – What would you say to someone who is new or considering starting CrossFit?
LW – I’d say try it, what do you have to lose? You’ll be hooked soon enough!
