January's 'Better Than Yesterday' Recipient.
Each month the EHP coaching staff will select a member that is 'Better Than Yesterday!' The selected recipient demonstrates compassion, resilience, perseverance and tenacity.
Why did you start CrossFit?
I started CrossFit in March of 2018 after hearing about the Row-A-Thon.
Why do you continue CrossFit?
I continue CrossFit because I learn so much about myself during the workouts that I don't think I'd learn any where else. Also, we have some of the most accepting and friendly people at EHP - no one cares that I'm weird or shy - and that's nice!
What has been your greatest achievement since joining EHP?
There has been so many! I used to be afraid of deadlifting, but now I can deadlift 205# easily. I've never done a handstand prior to CrossFit. I can occasionally run a 5k!
How has your life changed since joining CrossFit?
Obviously I'm stronger, but the mental stuff is what matters more to me. I'm noticeable more confident and assertive. I care less about how others see me. I am also way more patient (I answered these questions while my 2 year old was jumping on me)! :)
Jen was selected as January's 'Better Than Yesterday' recipient because she constantly works on progression- she is consistently performing movements (and weights) that she couldn't do a year ago. As a busy mom and wife, Jen still finds time for CrossFit and yoga. Jen is doing a remarkable job at everything in and out of the gym, which has allowed us to see more of her great personality.
Congratulations, Jen! We love seeing you push yourself to become Better Than Yesterday. Keep up the great work!
