Robyn getting ready for “The Gun Show”.

Here’s the 411 on Verve trainer Robyn, a.k.a. RKB, a.k.a. RoRo, a.k.a. Dancey Pants (not really, I just made that one up)

How did you get introduced to Crossfit?

I was introduced to CrossFit by my aunt Leila, she is a former body builder and work out nut and when she fell in love with crossfit she said I had to try it. Of course I did, and loved it, immediately after trying my first wod in Bismarck, ND I found the closest box to me in Fort Collins and have been hooked ever since.

How did you find Crossfit Verve?

I was only about a month in to Crossfit and we were moving to Denver, Verve was closest to our new house and was referred to me by Chris Brown the owner of the crossfit that I started at in Fort Collins.
You are a part time trainer here, what is it you are doing the other hours of the day you are not in the gym?

Well I’m an 8th grade math teacher during most of the other hours of the day, but you will also see me and the hubby hiking, camping, and just chilling with our dogs when not at the gym.
This question is from Clancy, “What does she see in Aaron?” (We love you Aaron, so seriously we want to know why Robyn loves you too)

Oh man where do I start. First off he has a sexy ass. I love his sense of humor and his ability to calm me the f*** down when I get a little crazy. He makes me laugh daily. He is the most unselfish person I know, always puts me first and will do the same for any friend or family member. How he takes everything lightly and doesn’t get worked up very easily is one of his best characteristics, and he’s a drummer and who doesn’t love a musician! I could keep going but don’t want to give all the secrets away.
We hear (and see) that you have some wicked dance moves, do you practice at home? In front of a mirror?

Of course… practice makes you better at anything, why would dancing be any different:) As far as the mirror goes I gotta work with what I got and I don’t have a full length mirror so I have to use the one I got, how else do you know how awesome you move if you can’t see yourself in a mirror. haha!
If you could challenge anyone to a dance off who would it be? Who would win?

Ellen DeGeneres and of course I would win! Also Justin Timberlake, but purely to get dance lessons not a challenge because I would lose that one big time.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

If I could live anywhere in the world it would probably be somewhere in Europe, but if I could vacation anywhere I would love to go to New Zealand and Fiji!
If you could be any animal which animal would it be?

A cheetah, a butterfly, or a snake!
What is your favorite Crossfit WOD? (For those of us who already know you well insert our shocked face here)

Of course it’s Karen! I also do love Helen and Randy!
Who is your favorite Crossfit Games athlete? (It’s okay to not say Matt Chan, we won’t judge you)

Well since you said that then I would have to pick Camille L-B because she is so peppy, Val Voboril because she is also a teacher, and Jason Khalipa because he’s pretty funny. And they are all amazing athletes. But my real favorite is Emmalee Teribery because she has the best attitude and smile!
If you could challenge any Games athlete to any WOD, who would it be, what is the WOD, and who would win?

I don’t know that I would want to challenge any games athlete because they would all kick my ass, unless the wod was Karen and I had a head start and it was here in the altitude. There are a lot of them that I would love to WOD with though; all listed above plus Becca Voigt, Stacy Tovar, pretty much any games athlete would be awesome to WOD with!
Robyn, we love seeing your face and your sweet, sweet dance moves in the gym. Please don’t stop the music or the rhythm is going to get you.
