Athlete Profile – Stacey Clark
How where you introduced to CrossFit? DUH… the one and ONLY CP AKA Christina Palmer.. Man I love that women!
What’s your favorite WOD or Lift? Can’t think of a favorite! If you asked me what I hated.. Heck I would have a LONG list.. I like to run, so I am happy to see running during a WOD. Filthy 50 was my VERY first RX and DANG was that an exciting day!
What is your favorite skill/movement that you have learned at CrossFit IoTA? Who doesn’t love getting there pull ups and double unders! Of course mine aren’t perfect, and they come and go a LOT. But it’s just exciting to improve and FINISH! There is always something to work on, I have to be careful not to worry about the “white” board. Focus on the movements and in time the weight will come!
How has CrossFit changed your life? I love the accomplishment of finishing a super hard WOD. I love it when you finished the workout and in the middle you thought and told yourself I “can’t”, I’m not going to be able to finish! And you DO!! You Finish! That has helped me outside of crossfit to push past that TUFF times. You CAN do it… YES you Can just don’t give up! Just keep moving!
What keeps you motivated and coming back for more? The people! The people. THE PEOPLE.. It’s so amazing! It doesn’t matter what class I hit, SOMEONE knows me and cheers me on! I love that! I love the encouragement. So I love to encourage! My favorite is to come on Friday’s when I don’t work and stay for hours.. just watching and cheering everyone on! It’s good times and I’m good and loud! Everyone knows the “rush” you get when your done! It’s hard to explain. You can’t explain it to anyone that hasn’t experienced it. And I’ll be honest I didn’t “love” it the first few weeks. It wasn’t until I actually started meeting people that I started loving it! Guess it’s just me! But crossfit is hard work. It’s not easy, takes dedication and motivation, but it’s very rewarding!
What’s something you know now that you wish someone would have said to you when you started CrossFit?
Your gonna have man hands! Bruises all the time. AND It NEVER get’s easy and your always sore!
