What is your history with CrossFit?
A friend told me about the program and after a year, finally convinced me to go to a free beginners class. Coming from a gymnastics and heavy lifting background I expected to go in and kill everyone there. To make a long story short, I got smoked by one of our trainers, Jacinto Bonilla who I later found out was 70 years old. I was humiliated and immediately hooked.
I am now fortunate enough to have a full-time job at CFNYC allowing me ample time to train every day. I started following OPT’s programming in December 2009 and I combine that with boxing 3 to 5 days a week.
There are a ton of female CrossFitters out there who I have lots of respect for and may never match in strength and speed. I don’t have incredible numbers on any WOD or lift but I am very consistently good across the board and I train ridiculously hard.
What is unique about you as an individual or athlete?
I majored in classical music performance at Manhattan School of Music... I play the French Horn.
