12 Oct Featured Athlete: George-Anne Garg
George-Ann came to us over a year ago and has recently had to take some time off to welcome the newest member of their family! George-Ann is the mother of now three beautiful girls with her newest, Priya Garg being born on 8/23/14 and weighing in at a whopping 6lbs. 5 oz. We are so proud of her continued dedication to not just her health and wellness but that of her new beautiful bundle of joy! We can’t wait till she’s back in action with us after her maternity leave!!!
Here is George-Anne’s story.
I started at Crossfit at CrossFit Assateague in August of 2013. I was looking for a structured way to work out and have accountability. I had attended a class with a friend and thought to myself, “this is the structure that I need”. The first workout was the initial assessment and I was shocked by the warm up alone. The biggest surprise for me was my lack of endurance, a box jump was even difficult! I was determined to make this a lifetime commitment. At first, my goal was to finish and keep up with the workouts, and after a few months, this became possible. Then, I became pregnant. What a surprise blessing, and this motivated me to make fitness a priority for the health of the baby. The fact that this pregnancy was going so well, kept me coming back. I felt more fit, than I had felt in a long time.
My favorite lift is the push press, and my favorite WOD includes any with squats and pull ups.
If someone asked me about crossfit, and wanted to know if it might be the right choice for them, I would ask them if they needed structure to work out, and enjoy a constant variation at every workout.
Having a committed coach, watching over and training me to fit where I am in life has made this an incredible year for me. I can’t thank Betsy Meyers enough for encouraging me and supporting me through the happiest, yet challenging time in my life. I am looking forward to getting back!
