Welcome to the team Emily!!

Welcome to the team Emily!!


#1 – What is your HOMETOWN?: Springfield, MO
#2 – What do you do in your free time? Hobbies? I’m a resident physician in Family Medicine at CU – so, I spend a lot of time working at the CU hospital and at Denver Health. Otherwise I’m outside rock climbing, biking, back country exploring. 
#3 – What changes have you seen both physically and mentally since you started CrossFit? It’s definitely helped me with all of the other physical things I like to do – I’m a stronger climber in an absolute sense, but I also have much better body awareness, which has helped on the technique side of climbing. My endurance for high elevation backcountry shenanigans has also definitely improved. 
#4 – What is your favorite workout or movement in CrossFit? Rowing and heavy squats. I also love the olympic lifts because they’re a big challenge for me and I always get a lot out of working out of my comfort zone. 
#5 – Any advice for someone new to CrossFit or Verve? Wait, aren’t I still new to crossfit? I guess I’ve been around for 6 months now so I don’t get to use that excuse anymore 😉
I think it’s rough to be new and faced with a lot of physically and technically complex lifts and gymnastics. I just try to remember to be patient with myself – in crossfit you re-visit movements a lot less frequently due to the varied nature of the programming, which can make your progress feel slow. But your progress isn’t just a single movement, it’s the whole picture! Keep showing up for the WODs that have the scary thing in them. 

#6 – Favorite movie quote  joke: No favorite jokes, just anything/everything related to bothering Paul
