How were you introduced to CrossFit?

My daughter Annick suggested to me over the course of SEVERAL months that I should try CrossFit. I had all the excuses lined up… I am too old, too out of shape, too busy, etc. In November 2015, she asked once again. I recall we were all sitting at the table together. I was getting really tired of her asking, so I answered “Sure I will, if Patrick [edit: Rose’s son] will do it with me.”, knowing Patrick was too busy/not interested, so I would be safe! Well as luck would have it, Patrick said yes and I was on the hook. We started On-ramp a couple of weeks later…

What is your favourite workout or lift?

I love deadlift, bench press, strict press, push press. I love the intense workouts… usually anything involving AMRAP. I am tenacious and can be quite competitive!

What is your favourite skill/movement that you have learned at CrossFit?

I have learned to love burpees, wallballs, handstands, headstands, Airdyne, stir-the-pot… the yoke?? Challenging but great!

What have you learned from CrossFit that transfers to your everyday life?

The journey matters… I have always been result-oriented, but have really come to appreciate the value of the journey. The time you spend working toward a goal can and should be enjoyed.

What is a skill you need or want to work on?

Double-unders, snatch, overhead squat… squats in general!

I have always wanted to:

Visit India and Australia.

Outside of the gym, I like to:

Read.

My favourite physical activity outside of CrossFit is:

Swimming, which I don’t do often enough. I used to love racquetball and would love to get back into it.

What is your day job?

Manager of the Court of Queen’s Bench Registry.
My proudest accomplishment is:

My three children… they’re awesome human beings! I would choose to be around them even if they weren’t my kids.

Next proudest moment is that I have stuck with proper nutrition and exercise (CrossFit) over the last several months and have gotten stronger, more fit and have lost 50lbs.

My six month goal is:

Continue getting stronger and fit. I would also like to fine-tune my nutrition so as to maintain where I am at and figure out what foods work best for me.

A piece of advice for someone starting out in CrossFit would be:

“LEAVE YOUR EGO AT THE DOOR!”. Really… nobody cares how you look in your workout clothes. Just go and do it!
