CrossFit 4 Everyone

where friends come to train.

Athlete of the Month

MEGAN BRUMBELOW

We choose Megan for so many reasons!  First of all, she is such a hard working lady inside and outside of the gym!  She is always trying to improve her lifts, technique and endurance outside of the WODs.  Megan is at the gym 5-7 times a week. After every WOD, she goes and runs at least a mile for her "cool down".   Her hard work and dedication has changed her physique dramatically.  Now Megan is RXing most WODs and a force to be reckoned with on the board.  Megan competed in her 1st competition in December and won her division with less than a weeks notice!  She has become such a beast that her fiance', Kaleel, finally was convinced that this CF thing was worth committing to!  On top of Megan's hard work, she is such a motivator at the gym!  She used to be one of the quiet ones, that just took it all in.  Megan is now the lady to motivate you through the workouts! Now she cheers everyone on as she is WODding. What an amazing transformation in a year!

 

Interview with Megan Brumbelow

Who are you outside of CF4E?

Outside of CF4E, I am a ER Nurse at Doctors Hospital. I love what I do each and everyday helping others. I'm getting married May 6, 2017 to the best man around... Kaleel! And I have the sweetest little dog Pixie whom I am quite attached too. In my free time, I enjoy doing things like biking, swimming, and scrapbooking. I like to be outdoors and I absolutely love to travel and see new places! I have even been to Uganda twice with my church on mission trips and would love to go back again someday.

What is your fitness background?

Prior to joining Crossfit, I did almost 3 years of kickboxing and absolutely loved it! However, I'm addicted to Crossfit now :)

 

When and why did you start CrossFit?

I started Crossfit on December 15, 2015 a little over a year ago when I moved from Iowa to Augusta, GA. Wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but had heard about Crossfit and how hard it can be. So decided to just sign up and give it a try as I enjoy a challenge!

 

What is your favorite WOD or skill?

My most favorite skills of Crossfit is hard to pick... but I love overhead squats, GHD, and obstacle days!

 

What is your least favorite WOD or skill?

My least favorite Crossfit skill is most likely to be the split jerk. Its just an awkward movement to me that I need to work on.

 

If you could create your perfect WOD, what would it be?

For Time: Run 1 mile, 50 OH Squats, 100 GHD, 50 Wall Ball, 50 Box Jump! Oh and for Endurance Run an additional 1 mile :)

 

What is your favorite cheat meal?

My most favorite cheat meal would consist of pepperoni pizza and Reese's ice cream for dessert! I have a bit of a sweet tooth!

 

What is your most memorable or funniest moment at CF4E?

My most memorable moment at CF4E was winning my first ever competition this past

 

December. All my time and hard work at the gym really paid off. I enjoyed the community and watching others compete and cheer them on as well.

 

What advice would you give to someone starting CrossFit?

For someone just starting Crossfit, I would encourage them to NEVER GIVE UP! So many people get discouraged right away when they can't do a WOD or certain technique but with time and effort you can do it! There will be difficult WOD's no doubt but continuously set your goals. Achieve them and set more. You will be amazed at what your body can do when you put your mind to it! But start slow and have fun in what you do! Enjoy the community of CF4E!!!
