A new year, A new member of the Month. We are excited to announce Meg Adanti Is CrossFit Boomtown’s January Member of the month. She comes in ready to work and with a smile on her face day in and day out. Over the past few months Meg has made some major strides in her movement progressions and her fitness level.
*How long have you been a member and how long have you been doing CrossFit?*
I started at Boomtown in August 2016, so just about 16 months thus far 🙂
*What is your favorite thing about the gym?*
My favorite thing about the gym? There are so many things I love about the gym… I guess I’ll narrow it down and say I love the people and the programming!
*What is the biggest challenge you have overcome since joining the gym?*
My biggest challenge was learning all the terminology that comes along with Crossfit – Thruster, Snatch, Clean etc. and then it was learning the right way to do each movement. Taking Zach’s Barbell camp REALLY helped supplement what I was learning in the day-to-day classes.
*What is your favorite moment at the gym so far?*
The first thing that came to my mind when I think of favorite moments in the gym are the partner workouts my husband Seth and I have done together. He really pushes me and inspires me to do the best I can when we partner up for WOD’s. I remember doing this crazy WOD with him where we had to row and he really motivated me to go faster and farther on the rower than I would have been able to do without him 🙂
*What’s your favorite “cheat” food? *
I love pizza. I also love cookies and cookie dough. Oh and I LOVE peanut butter (like I probably need therapy to deal with my LOVE of peanut butter!).
*What’s your Favorite activity outside the gym?*
I love running in the woods in the fall and winter. I still like it in the spring/summer, but the damn bees really put a damper on things in the warmer weather. I do run faster when I see other people get stung though!
*What would you say to someone who is thinking about starting?*
DO IT! My whole life style has changed for the much, much better since I started Crossfit. Step outside of your comfort zone and give it a try. The people at Boomtown really are the best. Everyone is supportive. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made!
*What drives you?*
I want to be the healthiest and fittest version of myself that I can be. I have been a Nutrition client of Melissa’s since December 2016. Working with her has taught me so much about how what I eat impacts not only how I perform in the gym, but also how I feel and what I am able to take on in my day to day life. I am learning new things about nutrition and exercise every day. I now look at my life as a journey. On that journey I hope to keep improving myself and inspiring other people to do the same, especially my children, family and friends.
*Which coach do you like to beat in workouts?*
Beat? That would mean I need to keep an accurate count of reps and rounds in WOD…LOL! No, but for real, I’m not there to compete with anyone else but myself. The coaches motivate the hell out me, though. I want to be more like them when I grow up 🙂
*What is your biggest fitness goal right now?
My biggest fitness goal right now is to continue to get stronger and leaner (is leaner a word?). I want to feel stronger all the time whether that be during a WOD at Crossfit, carrying my 5 year old son on my shoulders through the zoo, or running up an insanely steep hill in the woods. Just in general, I want to the strongest and fittest version of myself that I can be!
