 Erin V. January 12th.

Where ya from? Lancaster, WI

Age (if you want…)? 39

When did you first start CrossFit?  And what got you to CrossFit? Late Dec 2016 and my husband Brad got me to join the gym. I’ve watched the CrossFit games on TV quite a bit and always thought it was awesome!

What do you remember about your first WOD? Sucking air and grabbing my knees

What is your favorite “thing” about CrossFit? Actually pushing my body harder and farther than I thought it could go. I haven’t worked out this hard ever.

What is your favorite thing to do (besides CrossFit)? Just hanging with my family- whether we are at home, at a sporting event, at the lake or on vacation- my favorite thing is to be with them. My second favorite is my job- I love being a nurse.

What advice do you have for new CrossFitters? Just keep at it and put all your effort into it- the accomplishment you feel at the end of a workout is worth it!

What do you love the most about Trollway CrossFit? The people- the instructors and people you work out with- they make it awesome!

If you could have anything in the world for your birthday, what would it be? That’s tough- Probably to win the lottery- then I could have anything I want whenever I want.

What is your favorite “thing” about CrossFit?

I wanted to challenge myself. I like competing against myself, to  be better than yesterday.

The people and coaches in CrossFit classes make Trollway CrossFit fun.

Be here for my next birthday

 

Linnea 2

Linnea P.  February 27th

Where ya from?  

Born in Michigan, raised in Wisconsin. I moved to Madison for college and loved the area so much, I haven’t really left since then. Now I’m from MoHo!

Age (if you want…)?

I’ll be 31!

When did you first start CrossFit?  And what got you to CrossFit? 

I started last April or May.  I’d been looking for a decent gym for a while and I knew I didn’t want to deal with a long-term contract or the impersonal nature of a big box gym.  Matt and I tried out one-week memberships at other gyms in the area but nothing really clicked until I tried out Trollway.

What do you remember about your first WOD?

It was so hard! I was so out of shape. Jamie and Paul took pity on me and let me finish after one and a half rounds.  I came back for more, though, so it must not have been too bad.

What is your favorite “thing” about CrossFit?

That feeling when you look at a workout and it looks awful and terrible and hard and you’re dreading having to do it, but then you finish and don’t die and, hey, you actually feel really good!

What is your favorite thing to do (besides CrossFit)?

I’m really lazy at heart.  I love nothing more than laying on the couch and watching Netflix while cuddling a cat.

What advice do you have for new CrossFitters?

The workouts are hard but not impossible.  It’s really not as scary you think it’s going to be.

What do you love the most about Trollway CrossFit? 

I love the community.  I never have a bad day working out with so many fun people.  Everyone is always smiling and happy to be there.  It’s great!

If you could have anything in the world for your birthday, what would it be?

I would go on an extended vacation, location tbd.
