Our #MemberCrushMonday, Elizabeth, joined Chuckwalla recently, and never expected to START CrossFit at age 45!!
Elizabeth is an Insurance Account Manager for Enterprise Holdings, overseeing a west coast claims office. She is celebrating 19 years with them!
Together with her fiancée, they are paw-rents to 4 fur babies, Pixi, Brownie, (Red) Sox & Zeus.
Her favorite way to spend time is with her family, great friends and food, saying, "I believe in quality over quantity, life gets us busy and we need to slow down and enjoy what’s in front of us." In fact it was a friendship, with Amanda Pelkey, that brought her to Chuckwalla CrossFit recently! Elizabeth said, "I tried CrossFit on a whim, really to spend some time with my good friend and see what this CrossFit rage was all about. I’ve always had a gym membership, but you only get what you put in with the knowledge you have. I couldn’t move for almost 3 days after my first visit…. I had to come back, it was a personal challenge now! Between the results I saw after 3 weeks and the culture John and Ashley created, I was hooked! The LAST THING I ever imagined is joining CrossFit at 45! Success is starting and never stopping, it’s a mindset. Knowing what will get the job done and doing it. Control the controllable."
Recently she had a set back with a (2 yr old) shoulder issue that has finally been identified. Her new love of CrossFit and motivation to learn how to lift and be strong and fit is "forcing" her to get the injury resolved! Thankfully she is working with our in-house chiropractor Vince Chavira to be able to continue her CrossFit journey injury free.
