Verve Athlete Profile: Lindsey Hodel 

Where are you from? St. Louis, Missouri
How long have you been CrossFitting? Since 2010
What is your favorite workout? I like the hero workouts!
What do you like to do in your spare time? I like to mountain bike, ski, and enjoy time outdoors. I race mountain bikes in the summer. My spirituality is also important to me.
What is one of your best/favorite goals you have accomplished since starting CrossFit? I did my first-ever pull-up at Verve, and hit a 140-lb bench press two weeks ago.
Anything you would like to add? CrossFit for me has significantly changed my fitness level. I used to always have back pain and it hasn’t been back since I started at Verve. My biking, skiing, and running have dramatically improved, and I feel mentally so much tougher. I am proud to be a female weight lifter…except that it means I always am the first one to get asked to help friends move.
Good-onya’, Lindsey. Proud to have you at Verve!
