Coaches Notes

Sarah Clarke, our wonderful Member of the Month @ CFCB:

  1. How long have you been at CFCB?

It will be 2 years in September.

2.        What changes have you noticed in yourself since the beginning?

I’ve definitely made some confidence gains since starting at CFCB. As a person with the stature of a baby deer, I was pretty sure that a lot of things I saw people doing at the box when I first started were just not do-able for me.  But over the past 2 years it has been fun to surprise myself by doing things like pull ups, lifting heavier stuff, and even sprouting tiny arm muscles.  The coaches and community at CFCB have this magical way of making you excited to come work out and try new things.

 

 3.       What moment are you most proud of at CFCB?

After doing some extra OLY work lately, I was legit shocked when I was able to do five  clean and jerks at 15 lbs heavier than my previous 1 RM during a CanWest qualifier workout last month. So weird how practicing stuff makes you better!?  I was also really proud of the denim-themed family portrait that our Open Intramural team did for the team photo contest. Shout out to the Franberries!

 4.       Tell us something about your life outside of CrossFit:

Last year I decided to go back to university to become a teacher after 6 years in finance/accounting which has been an exciting change. Also, I think that Justin Bieber is a national treasure- any day I get to work out while listing to the Biebs is a good day.

 5.       Do you have any pets?

Many have probably met my little black dog Elsa... she is extremely adorable and may try to follow you home if you feed her. 

 6.       What skills do you hope to be able to do in the future?

Handstand pushups and bar muscle ups.
