What Brought you to Ganbatte and what keeps you here?

A childhood friend of mine would post her daily WOD's on Facebook.  I contacted her and asked her about these crazy workouts she was doing daily and she introduced me into the world of crossfit.  Driving home one evening I spotted the crossfit sign on San Fernando Road.  I wrote down the name and decided to look into it.  Six months later I finally called and was told to come in and see JP for the intro classes.  The morning after my first intro class I experienced a level of soreness like never before.  I called my friend to ask her if this was normal.  She laughed and said yes and the best part is that you will grow to love it.  She made me promise her that I would return to my second intro class and I did.  Signing up was the best decision I have ever made.  What keeps me at Ganbatte is the atmosphere and the coaches.  I've made some great friends here and no matter how good or bad my day is going I always look forward to my 7:30pm class.



If you can make a benchmark workout what would it be?


Conquering the girls -   A combination of my favorite girl benchmark workouts  

  5 rounds  

 10 deadlifts

20 pull ups 

20 push ups 

15 weighted sit ups 

10 wall balls



What skill would you like to have mastered in time for a zombie invasion. 

Since I'm so short definitely the wall climb, rope climbs and endurance... Gotta keep moving so the zombies don't see me!!!


 My proudest Ganbatte moment?


I have two moments that I'm extremely proud of.  The first would be participating in my first crossfit competition.  I was so nervous going into it but ended up having a great time thanks to my workout partner, fellow athletes and family.  My second proudest moment was when I did my first strict pull up.  I was just so thrilled, I've worked really hard for that one pull up .


 Ganbatte as a Verb and how do you enact it?

Ganbatte to me is about being present, showing up and giving 100% physically and mentally.  Not only at the box but in life.  When I'm at work I give 100 %.  When I'm at home with my family I give them 100% of my time. When I commit to something I give 100 % of me.  I tell my son's everyday to decide, commit and succeed.
