March Member Highlight:
Jenn R.
Evening class regular

We have selected Jenn as this month’s member highlight because we have watched such an incredible transformation in her over the past 6 months.  When she first joined us at Outlaw Crossfit, we could tell she was unsure of many things yet she believed in the program and came to workout on a consistent schedule.  We have watched her grow more and more comfortable with the movements, add weight on the bar little by little, and is now the voice of encouragement and advice to our newer members!  We are proud of you Jenn!

“I have just finished my 6th month here at Outlaw Crossfit.  When I was first introuced to crossfit, I thought I would pick up all the exercises relatively easily.  I played soccer in college at East Carolina University.  We did a lot of lifting.  We did movements such as cleans and jerks, I think (it was 15 years ago!) but we didn’t focus much on them.  I was likely just going through the movements back then because they are pretty difficult for me now!  

At first, I felt totally lost with some movements – like Double Unders!  I had no idea how to even begin trying to attempt one of them!  I would stand there holding the jump rope in my hands staring at everyone else.  Coach Ceasar spent some time with me teaching me how to do them.  Even though I have to do two singles in between each double now, I have made some serious progress with them which makes me very happy!

When I first started working out at Outlaw, I was coming to class on an average of two times a week for about the first three months.  I picked it up to 3-4 times a week for the next three months and have started to notice a difference!  Strength is a continuum and I’m steadily getting stronger with this program.  These are the hardest workouts I’ve ever done and I love them.  I come home feeling so wonderfully exhausted.  

It is funny to think back when a friend attempted to politely discourage me from joining Outlaw.  He told me that the workouts at Outlaw would “destroy” me and that it was a gym for serious competitors only.  I’m glad I didn’t listen to him.  I came in for an introduction workout with Coach Nicole and I instantly felt comfortable with her and decided to join.  I’m looking forward to see what is in store for me here in the year ahead!”
