When/how did you realize CrossFit/Mi5 was the right fit for you?
I loved training with both Chris and Andrew so I never questioned whether Crossfit/Mi5 would be a good fit for me. I would have followed them to any gym whether it had the Crossfit name or not. I stay because Mi5 has the best trainers who show up every day to help others do better and be better. Their gym community not only supports, encourages, and motivates you through a challenging WOD, but also life outside of the gym as well.
What is your favorite WOD/movement?
Anything where I am constantly moving - so pretty much a boot camp WOD
What is your least favorite WOD/movement?
The Mi5 5k day
What would your perfect WOD look like?
I love a WOD that is at least 20 minutes, has at least 3 different movements and that is cardio based.
What is one thing you have been able to accomplish since starting at Mi5 that you never thought you’d be able to do?
Considering one of my high school coaches came into the weight room and said, “Ms. Lockrem, laying on the equipment does not count as lifting the equipment”. I think that every time I finish a WOD I have accomplished something that I never thought I would be able to do or I should say want to do.
What is something about you that Mi5 members do not yet know?
I painted the inside of that gym (the blue wall ball lines are mine), took down walls, scraped glue off the floor in 100 degree heat with no air, and when I was done Chris G. told me I was a horrible painter.
What motivates you to stay fit?
It's not so much about staying fit for me as it is about staying mentally healthy
What advice would you give to someone just getting started at Mi5?
I don’t think you have to give any advice to someone just starting because Mi5 speaks for itself. Once you walk through those doors, do your first workout, and meet the community you will be hooked….. it doesn’t matter how sore you feel …..you’ll be back.
