SPORT OF FITNESS ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT
Name: Brooke Peterson
Occupation: Teller leader at First Citizens Bank
Favorite thing or things to do (Other than Crossfit of course!) Hmm other than Crossfit, I love spending time and going on adventures with my family. I'm from an island so being able to drive to another state on a weekend or even in a day is an adventure for me. Just exploring different places. I also love being outdoors, we just started doing some hiking and kayaking.
How did you get started at SOF? What was your first WOD experience? I knew that I wanted to try Crossfit, and Al who is also a member here, told my boyfriend about it.... sooooo here I am and so happy that I tried SOF. My first WOD experience was doing Cindy for half of the regular time. That was intense and although my life flashed before my eyes (LOL), I got through it. Coach Jen was so motivating and pushed us through it.
Which class do you work out in? I try to come to either 5:30p and 6:30p class.
What is your favorite WOD or movement? I don't know if I have any favorites just yet, but I really enjoy doing a lot of the weight lifting movements. However, if I have to pick one, I'd pick the power snatch. I love the movement because I never imagined myself lifting that much weight over my head.
What is your least favorite WOD or movement? Least favorite movement would definitely have to be burpees. If there is a way to make burpees easier please let me know, I'll forever be thankful. LoL. Regardless, whether I like it or not, just getting through any workout (Even if it involves burpees) makes me so proud.
What are your short term and long term Crossfit goals? Short term goal for Crossfit would to be able to do a kipping pull up and retire the box for my jumping pull ups. My long term goal with Crossfit is to increase my overall strength and RX more WODs. Feeling better about myself and living a more active healthy life is a goal for me as well.
Most memorable moment at Sport of Fitness? Each time I come to class it is definitely an experience. My most memorable moment was not to long ago when I RX'd my first workout. That was such an accomplishment for me. I came in that day, looked at the WOD and thought, "Hmm... I think I can RX this workout." As we conditioned and practiced, I thought, "You know what, I KNOW I can RX it!" Just changing my whole mindset created a whole new outcome. I loved it.
What would you tell someone who is interested in training at Sport of Fitness? Come on down and try it. Don't assume you can't do it. SOF is filled with so many people that are here to motivate you and help you through it and they have the best coaching staff and support. Forget the boring gyms and the crazy diets. If you want to get in shape and you are ready for a lifestyle change, this is the place to be. SOF!!!
