Member of the Month: Allie Olson

Allie started CrossFit a bit over a year ago in July of 2019 so that she could give something other than being stuck in her basement, or running circles around the lake, a try. Allie is a regular at noon class where it can get off the rails a bit, but she likes having a light atmosphere and laughing before getting a solid workout in. She also finally convinced her husband Sam to hop on the bandwagon also, so now they’ve got something else to spend time together doing. 

Allie is a fan of the simpler barbell movements; squats and cleans, but since she’s had to stay away from running for a while she claims she’s starting to enjoy the Assault Bike (I find this mildly concerning)!  She also has been putting in the extra work in chasing her first pull up that just keeps slipping around the corner. 

Because of CrossFit Allie feels just more confident outside the gym in general, and when it comes to chasing her 2 kids around. She hasn’t tried many new things this year, but I have to say touché cause she did point out it hasn’t been a great year to get around try new things. When it comes to getting into the gym each day Allie just likes coming in to work. She has some goals she wants to hit, doesn’t check the workout ahead of time, and believes she gets back what she puts in.
