Kristi is one of our Founding Members in Cd’A. “Within the 1st month, I found out I was pregnant. I was so grateful that I had joined a gym that could take me through this journey safely and as healthy as possible!”
I have never considered myself an athlete. Working out is not something that comes natural to me. I admit that I need someone telling me exactly what to do and to hold me accountable to get it done! I had been doing CrossFit for about 2 years when I saw that a new gym was opening that catered to women. I wanted to be part of a gym where I felt like I belonged, and bonded with the other members.
I’ve been with Farmgirlfit Cd’A since the doors opened. Within the 1st month, I found out I was pregnant. I was so grateful that I had joined a gym that could take me through this journey safely and as healthy as possible. I had coaches and other members cheering me on, and I felt confident that I was not pushing my body too much. When I was in labor the nurses actually called me an “athlete” - that’s when I knew I was in the right place. I was eager to come back as soon as the doctors cleared me, and can’t imagine going through the journey without FGF. I have never felt as strong and confident in my abilities as I do now.
Double Unders! I never thought I would get them and when it clicked I was ecstatic!
My body has definitely changed since having Harvey. I’d like to strengthen my core. I also need to get serious about improving my diet!
My 1 year old Harvey. I want him to see his mom challenging herself and strong. When Harvey is at the gym with me, and peeking through the window to watch me, I push myself to be keep going.
Favorite: Anything with a kettlebell and wall balls. Least Favorite: running, and snatches
You can do anything for x amount of minutes!
The coaches! Each one pushes me in a different way. I look forward to seeing each and every one of them! I also love the fact that I can bring Harvey with me if I need to. Having childcare, complimentary at that, is something that makes FGF that much better now that I am a mom.
I have a new motivation for working out - keeping up with my 1 year old! Being a mom is physically demanding and I would hate to limit what I can do with my son because I am out of shape.
A sportscaster…ironic since I never played sports, but I grew up in a household centered around sports. I’ve always loved the adrenaline and excitement of sporting events.
What would you do if you knew you could not fail?
Of how strong I have become.
Other successful women…and by successful I mean business women, entrepreneurs, woman in the gym, working moms, stay-at-home moms, single moms, independent women, world travelers. I truely find them all inspiring.
Don’t think twice about it - just show up and let the Grind lead you. No workout is easy for any of us, even if we have been doing it for years. The only person judging you is yourself.
Just want to say thank you! Thank you for creating a gym that inspires me. When I talk about who my heroes are, you ladies fall into that category. You do it right! Just a few things that make you special:
