March 2017 Athlete of the Month

Check this awesome Q & A with our March Athlete of the Month Regina Salemo!

1. When did you start CrossFit and why?

I was going to another gym and was not motivated by the classes that were offered. I had several friends who were in CrossFit and told me I should try it.  I was worried it would be too hard but I finally tried a class in July and I have been hooked ever since.

2. What time of day you come in?

I come to Burn at 9:30.  I also just started going to Saturday at 8:30 whenever I can.

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

I like to row and really hate burpees. 

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

My goal is to try to increase my upper body  strength so I can get better at pull-ups and push-ups.

5. Tell us one fun fact about you.

I love to sing karaoke although I have been told I am not very good!

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?

I would definitely want my iPad and my husband’s grilled pizza!

7. How has CrossFit helped you in sports? Life?

I don’t play many sports but I feel better when I come to the gym regularly. CrossFit has also given me time that is just for me.

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

Before kids I could workout whenever I had time.  Now I have found that I have to really schedule time to workout or else it wouldn’t happen.  I try to block off the hour for Burn as often as I can so I can get my workout in.
