The Gate CrossFit April Athlete of the Month

The Gate CrossFit April Athlete of the Month

Name

Lisa McNabb

Age

56

Where did you grow up?

Lava Hot Springs, Idaho

When did you become a member at The Gate CrossFit?

Just over 2 years ago.

What do you do when you are not at The Gate CrossFit? (occupation, hobbies, etc.)

I love spending time with family, running, biking and anything with sun and water. I also love to read and I love antiques.

How did you find out about CrossFit?

I read about it and decided I really needed to do something besides cardio. I’ve always been active running, biking, etc. but not much of a strength trainer. I felt with the importance of strengthening bones as I got older, CrossFit may be the answer.

When did you realize CrossFit is right for you?

I loved it right from the start. I loved the combination of cardio and strength training and I loved the community of CrossFit.

What is your favorite WOD/movement?

Running

What is your least favorite WOD/movement?

My least favorite is bar work. Mostly because for me that takes the most coordination and strength…something I am still working on.

What would your perfect WOD look like?

Running, wall balls and pushups.

What is one thing you have done at The Gate CrossFit that you never thought you would do?

Box jumps and handstands on the wall.

What motivates you during a CrossFit WOD?

I think knowing that I am going to feel so much better when the WOD is over. I love feeling sore and tired knowing that I gave it my all.

What is something about yourself that we might not know?

I have 7 children and 5 grandchildren. And we are adding 3 more grandchildren this summer! Family is everything to me. Our children were all adopted so I feel so blessed to be a mother and grandma.

What advice would you give to someone just getting started with CrossFit?

I would tell them to not be intimated the first time they come. I would tell them to start where they are comfortable and work up from there. It’s not about how much everyone else can do…it’s about what you can do and improving upon that. I would tell them that they will love our CrossFit family because they are the BEST!

I like…people.

I eat…chocolate.

I do…family.

I am…blessed.
