(This is an ongoing digital meet-and-greet to get to know your fellow members a little better! Join us as we feature a different athlete from the CCC / CFE family! Questions? Want to be featured? Email [email protected])
1-Name: Christy Hinojosa
2-Profession / hobbies: R.N.; I love Latin dancing and… Is sleeping a hobby? Because I love that too! 😉
3-When did you start CrossFit: I was first introduced to Crossfit in July 2008 and fell in love it. For 6 months, I was at a small “box” (one car garage) in Colorado Springs, CO. Then, the on-again/off-again Crossfit relationship began due to life’s variable changes (gym closure, moves, nursing school, etc, etc). I’m so incredibly happy to be back at it again, since July 2012, with my CCC family (big smiley face!).
4-Favorite thing about the gym: The people!!! I love the community of people it brings together. Some of the best people I’ve ever met are at our box!
5-Favorite lift or movement: Hmmm… Probably KB swings
6-least favorite WOD so far: I’m torn, but I’m thinking I’ll go with the 5000M row (I cursed every meter past 2000, haha)
7-Biggest change: I’d have to say the biggest change I’ve noticed is mental change. Mental strength for instance. Not quitting even when it feels too hard to continue. It has fostered a stronger sense of resiliency.
8-Next goal you hope to write on the wall: Bar muscle-up
9-How you would describe CrossFit to friends/ family in four words or less: Best fitness environment ever!
