Check this awesome Q & A with our October 2017 Athlete of the Month Maria Quito!

1. When did you start CrossFit and why?

I started  about  5-6  months ago, and  I always loved sports, and the challenge. I have been running  for more than two years, and I wanted to try  something new.  I like the fact that it makes me do  things that I’m not good at.

2. What time of day you come in?

Monday through Friday – between 6-7 pm  and weekends 9:30 am

3. What is one movement you hate and one you love?

Double-unders   and handstand push ups

4. Any big goal(s) set for the next year?

My  goal is to get unassisted pull-ups and  handstand push ups
5. Tell us one fun fact about you.
My major is international business  and  I love to travel, see new cultures, and learn new languages
6. You were left on a deserted island. What one food and thing (i.e. book, music player, etc…) would you want to be left with?
Apples, watermelon , I pod and a book,
7. How has CrossFit helped you in sports? Life?
    I notice  I have  built  more strength   and my performance   in running has gotten much  better.

8. How have workouts changed for you over the years?

I haven’t been CrossFitting very long, but there were a lot of workouts in the beginning I was afraid  to do or to pick up  a heavy weight, but now I’ve started to figure out which workouts I can really push myself on and which ones to  focus on my form or specific skills.
