Q.  What is your proudest CrossFit/training  moment? A.  Every time a coach says that looks good or that is the best I have seen you do that movement. Q.  What was the toughest hurdle when you got started? A.    Not getting discouraged.  Realizing that it is not a competition. Q.  What is the toughest hurdle for you right now? A.    Still not getting discouraged.  Especially when it comes to cleans and snatches. Q.    What keeps you going in a workout when you sometimes want to quit? A.     1) The coaches and other members you can do it.  2) knowing if I finish I really accomplished something. Q. What is your favorite part of Arenal Fitness?
