Name: Maria King
Length of Time CrossFitting: 6 years
Favorite Lift/Movement and Why? Push press, push jerk and deadlifts. I feel the strongest when I am doing these lifts.
Favorite Workout/Type of Workout and Why? I like workouts that incorporate barbell movements because they are the most fun! I love Grace because it/she is short and sweet. Fight Gone Bad is another classic that I love because of the variety of movements. Both of these are full body workouts that always leave my completely spent!
Goals for the Next Year? Pull-ups! I want them so bad! And better Double Unders. I have wanted to improve on these for years! This is my year.
How has CrossFit Impacted your Life? CrossFit has completely changed my life. Prior to CrossFit, I had never done anything athletic. CrossFit has given me so much more confidence because I know how strong I am. It has shown me that I am capable of things I never thought I could do. Crossfit has brought out my physical AND mental toughness. I adore CFB and my coaches! It is truly an honor to be this month’s athlete of the month!
