#MemberCrushMonday: Cassidy Espinola
Cassidy joined us at the end of August, and today she is our #MemberCrushMonday! If you see her, make sure to ask her how she is doing, because she will suprise you with a creative answer every time!
Let's get to know her:
I come from a small town in Northern California known as Redwood Valley, where I miss the weather and four seasons there dearly, as much as I love a good cactus and constant heat year around. I have two amazing parents, a younger brother that just graduated Basic Military Training for the United States Air Force as dorm chief, and my older sister that keeps herself busy with my awesome little niece and nephew. I am a junior at Grand Canyon University, majoring in Business Management and minoring in Hospitality Management. I supplement my degree with a part-time job at the DoubleTree by Hilton Paradise-Valley Scottsdale Resort.
Something most people don't know about me is my love for heavy metal! My father has taken me to about 9 concerts since I was 12 (we have the Aftershock tour in Sacramento coming up at the end of this month-very excited!!)
My journey with Crossfit began a few months back. I have always heard positive things about this type of fitness and decided to give it a shot after years of little progression attending LA Fitness. I chose this gym because on the website Coach John has a video explaining what Chuckwalla entails- and he emphasizes a "non-intimidating environment," which really spoke to me.
I am beyond thankful I found this gym that holds so much positivity, encouragement, and motivation; 8am-9am with Coach Lauren (can't forget Kyrie), is the highlight of my day. Both John and Lauren have been so welcoming and helpful with technique, I appreciate it so much.
I hope you all have a great week, work hard play hard!"
