June Member Highlight: Rhiannon
How long have you been at Vic City?
I did On-ramp in November so this is month 6 for me, as I was sick for an entire month and had to stay out of the gym (I lost all my callouses!).
What is your favourite movement you have worked on so far?
I don’t want to say I have a least or most fav but I am really enjoying that I recently started doing kipping pull ups and a few RX workouts. Also, my back injuries dislike deadlifts and I struggle with Olympic lifting, but I won’t stop trying to work on it!
What are some of your goals?
I am working towards my kipping handstand push and hope to ditch the blocks one day. I just hope to keep attending as many classes as possible so I can get better at technique, lift heavier, and be the best version of myself ☺
What have you enjoyed most about starting CrossFit?
I love CFVC for so many reasons; constant learning and improvement, great coaches, and a community feel with like-minded and supportive people. If it wasn’t for Carla at bootcamp I may not have tried pull ups without a band yet! I love that there are no mirrors, no ego; we are all just doing our personal best on our own journey for strength and health. Coming to class is something I look forward to as my happy place and completing a WOD (even when I’m last or have the lowest score) is an amazing feeling every time.
