Name: Ali Caballero
Occupation: English Department Chair
Length Of Time CrossFitting: 8 months
Favorite Lift and Why? Power Snatch; this is one of my most difficult movements, but it is also the very first that I PR’d during my first experience with the CFB Winter Challenge. I also love the flow of a power snatch. Starting from the floor, ending over-head.
Favorite WOD and Why? I love a great EMOM or Chipper, but I would have to admit my favorite was the AMRAP: 200 calorie row and 10 burpees for 30 minutes.
Goals for the Next Year? My husband and I will being going through IVF come this summer. My hopeful goal is to continue to WOD for two!
How has CrossFit Impacted your Life? I am the least competitive and athletic person you will meet! Being a part of Crossfit has made me realize that anything is possible and that competition with yourself is most important. When my dad passed away last July, I wanted badly to put my mind to the test of trying something that I had never tried before – something that would test me and help me to change perspectives about life in general. CrossFit was just the challenge I needed!
