Well, we have been SUPER busy getting some new people through intro sessions. Noel completed 1-on-1s for Fran last week and Sarah this week! He’s also working with a new guy named Kyle, who completed his second class today. AND… I’ve got word that more are on the way!!! I will make sure to get the full CrossFit Kirkwood scoop on our new athletes, but here’s a quick intro to Fran!
So, the first thing I have to say is that Fran is the exact OPPOSITE of the WOD with the same name. Meaning, she is like the nicest person ever. She is SUPER flexible, which means she will pick up on many of the toughest moves pretty easily. We were working on snatches today, and her overhead squat looked pretty effortless. Props to Noel for teaching her great mechanics!
Her very first regular CrossFit class was Whitten, and she told me that everyone made Saturday classes sound way tougher than the workout actually was. Quite the tough lady!!!
My two favorite facts about Fran are these:
1. She used to do ballet. That is a really cool starting point!!! Even though we move a little differently in Crossfit, dance gave her great body awareness and control.
2. She used to do kung fu. Like Bruce Lee. Or Neo in the Matrix. Can’t get much cooler than that!
So glad to have Fran join our group!!! Stay tuned for more info on Fran and the rest of our new recruits!
