December Member of the Month Interview: Leigh Walden
1. What do you do outside of the gym? Career, hobbies, etc.!
I have two children, Mallie ,7 and Law,5. They keep me busy with various activities. I volunteer at their school, Sacred Heart one day a week!
I also enjoy spending time at the lake and the beach with my family! CrossFit has become my latest hobby!!
2. How long have you been training with us?
I have been training for ten months- best decision ever!
3. What's been your biggest accomplishment since you began training with us?
I have become stronger both mentally as well as physically!!
Since joining I have done movements that I have never done in my life and I am able to lift more than when I started. It is very rewarding to see the progress!
I also have run more than ever and I am slowly improving my speed and distance, which I am proud of!
4. What's your favorite thing about being a member here?
The people! I was so intimidated by CrossFit before I joined. Both the members and coaches are so encouraging & welcoming; I have made so many new friends here!
I also love the structure of the classes and the continuous challenge. Although I can tell I am getting stronger, it never gets easier. I love that the coaches are always there to push me, because I am not good at pushing myself to the next level!
5. What would you say to someone who is considering training with us?
I would tell them to absolutely give it a try, no matter what their current level of fitness is!
If I can do it, anyone can!!
The last ten months of being a member here has improved my confidence as well as my mental and physical health!! It’s really a win, win!
Just do it, you certainly won’t regret it!!
