How did you learn about CrossFit? Stumped across a Guns and Hoses event at Downtown Anaheim, loved it and started looking into CrossFit box close to where I live.

How has CrossFit RXD changed your life? Crossfit RXD has given me purpose, it is the highlight of my day. It has empowered me as a woman and made me realize it is never too late to start a fitness journey and best of all is helping me reinvent a better version of myself.

Short term goals: Master the Crossfit lingo, eat clean, get off my “T-Diet”(Tacos, Tamales, Tortillas, Taquitos, Tortas), increase my grip strength to be able to do pull ups as well as increase my flexibility and mobility to improve my skills and abilities.

Long term goals: RXing the WODs, looking as sexy strong as Nyra and Christine, be able to do hand stand walks with Matt and Nick and to become an athlete.
