Mary is a veteran, both of CrossFit Winnipeg WODs, and of our Annual Spring Leaning Challenge. It is a little known fact that Mary’s sister Kathy was my team mate for my very first CrossFit Team workout in 2008! Mary’s consistency in the gym and in the kitchen is paying off, with regular personal records, and some remarkable results every time she participates in one of our challenges. Mary’s work ethic, attitude and kindness make her the perfect workout partner, and she sets a great example for anyone who wants to use CrossFit to get better at sports and at life. Here’s Mary’s CrossFit story in her own words…
— Coach Tania
I’d rather participate in a sport than watch it. Love playing ball hockey, soccer and do CrossFit. I play on a women’s 35+ rec league soccer and run a women’s ball hockey night for my churches sports program. I enjoy being a part of a church that helps people make there lives better spiritually, mentally and physically.
Crossfit has helped me see I can do anything I set my mind to.
Doing barbell weights was and still is a learning experience for me. Keeping all the different positions right is a struggle, like hang clean, power clean and others. Taking a class with Adrian intimidates me but also pushes me to do better. I like dead lifts because it’s just one movement I guess thats why my last one was a big PR-255.
Now when we do workouts like that i push my because i know I can do better. I love the groups I workout with and how they are all so encouraging and helpful.
