Karin, October 2012
The October Rogue of the Month is Karin!
I’ve lived in the Rogue Valley for very close to my entire life. I recently received my MBA from Southern Oregon University and currently work as an Accountant for Asante Health System. I have been married to my amazing husband Chris for 5 years and I look forward to many more with him.
How long have you been CrossFitting? How did you hear about RVCF?
My sister started dragging me with her last October but I didn’t seriously start coming until January.
What training did you do before CrossFit?
I was on the swim team, water polo team and crew team in high school, but not a lot in between then and CrossFit.
How has CrossFit impacted your life?
I feel better in every aspect of my life. I have more energy and generally feel more positive at work and at home. I am totally addicted to CrossFit and all of the wonderful people there. I have seen such incredible results and I have been able to do things that I never thought were possible, I love it!
What has been your most memorable experience at the gym?
Conquering double unders! They’re tricky little bastards.
What’s your favorite WOD or exercise?
Any WOD that includes kettle bell swings is awesome, they’re my favorite!
Do you have any advice for new CrossFit members?
Stick with it. The workouts may seem crazy at first, but the results are unbelievable and you’ll be amazed by what you’re capable of!
Keep track of your workouts, seeing where you started and how far you’ve come is extremely rewarding and motivating!
