#MemberCrushMonday: Megan Agliano
Here is her story:
What do you do outside of CrossFit?
I am in my 9th year of teaching Religious Studies at Brophy College Prep so I have the unique privilege of teaching ethics to a bunch of high school boys, which is rarely dull. My husband also teaches (and coaches) there, even in the same department, so Brophy is a big part of our life. We have a spunky little 3 year old named Abby, who is awesome.
What is something about you that would surprise us?
It’s possible I am one of the least competitive people who does CrossFit. I even played tennis in college and have just never gotten too worked up over winning or losing (Which is probably why I didn’t win all that much - but I just thought it was fun to play!)
What do you enjoy?
I love walking, running and hiking outside when it’s nice, but don’t get to do it as much as I want now that Abby is less excited about stroller rides. I also enjoy doing little home projects. Home improvements is one thing I love to day dream about. I even enjoy painting.
Why do you CrossFit?
I was introduced to CrossFit by my sister -in-law and father-in-law who are pretty awesome at CrossFit. I only went because they invited me to their gym in Chandler and ended up really enjoying it. It is something that I never get bored with and really see results when I am consistent. It’s a workout I would probably never push myself to do by myself so I like the structure and accountability. I also love how supportive CrossFit is by having childcare and having lots of kids around. This makes working out consistently so much easier.
What is your favorite CrossFit lift/workout?
At heart I am a cardio lover so I always like the running, rowing and jump roping (is that cardio?) intervals. Otherwise I like any lift that does not include a squat 😉
