Brenna is relatively new to the Inside Out family, but she has been really crushing it lately!
When she started doing CrossFit, she started meeting with our Nutrition coach once a month to run measurements and tweak her nutrition habits. In just 4 short months, her entire body composition and fitness level are completely different since she focused 100% on nutrition and working out. We cannot be prouder!
We asked her a few questions about why she continues to choose CFIO:
How has CrossFit Inside Out changed your lifestyle?
CrossFit Inside Out has created a space that allows me to pursue practices that support a healthy mind and body. The transition from Raleigh to Wilmington for school last year shifted my priorities. Unfortunately, physical fitness and nutrition took a back burner to other aspects of life. With coaches that enforce consistency and a community that is welcoming, CrossFit Inside Out has become an outlet to prioritize fitness, while learning to find a sustainable life balance.
What was your first impression of CFIO?
After going through the Start-Up program with Coach Taylor and Coach Brian I was extremely excited to work my way into classes. There was definitely an intimidation factor at first, but I quickly felt a warm welcome from all the members and coaches. The intensity, accountability, and humor that is brought to every workout are refreshing and something I look forward to!
What’s been the biggest change you’ve seen since starting CrossFit Inside Out?
Aside from tangible improvements throughout workouts, I’ve seen the greatest change in my mentality. I have noticed that I am more confident in day to day life, and am less concerned with reaching unattainable self-expectations. I have also embraced failure as an opportunity to grow and readdress a situation, both in and out of the gym. This mindset has improved my mental health and fitness performance immensely.
What are you working on right now?
I am currently trying to test the limits of my physical fitness. Now that I have a few skills under my belt I want to start pushing the pace and weight in classes; all while staying consistent with good practices. Maintaining good nutrition is a top priority as well!
What’s your favorite CFIO memory?
My favorite CFIO memory is the first workout I completed with my roommate McKenzie. It was a partner workout that we got to complete together (I remember a lot of rowing, lunges, and kettlebell swings), both struggling and smiling the whole way. Now we look forward to 8 pm every night when we can discuss and or mentally prepare for the newly posted workout.
