#MemberCrushMonday: Ashley Rodrigues
Here is her story...
"Hi guys! My name’s Ashley and I’m new to Chuckwalla (and Crossfit in general) but very excited and quite humbled to be back with the Crossfit/Fitness community. (PSA: never take off 6 months from working out). I was born and raised in Phx and studied elementary ed at the University of Arizona. For the past four years, I’ve been teaching elementary kiddos in Spain, AZ, CO, and CA. But the desert (and my three brothers) have convinced me to return to Phx :)
Outside of teaching, I love hanging out with my doggo, Nino, and my 3 yo nephew, Brooks. Ok the weekends, you can find me hiking, reading, listening to 70s folk music, eating, or (my favorite) napping.
I look forward to working out at Chuckwalla (4:30 gang!!) because of the mental and physical expectations that are met and exceeded daily. I weirdly love burpees (??) but despise wall balls and thrusters 🤢. My relationship with these two movements is so toxic that I can’t look at the WOD the night before anymore because if they are in the workout, I won’t show up.
Thank you Chuckwalla for providing this community and facility. I am eager and happy to becoming stronger alongside you all. Ok, bye! "
