#MemberCrushMonday: Lindsay Ballew
Here is her story:
Why do I choose Chuckwalla?
I have been doing CrossFit since 2017 and love the community aspect of it. When I tried Chuckwalla for the first time I saw that there was a good community here. People asked my name and have offered encouragement. I like the focus on strength as well as wods. I love the childcare too being a solo parent!
How do you make a difference in the community?
I am a nurse for my profession and work at Banner downtown and have many patients that have special socioeconomic and health needs combined and I usually try to volunteer at shelters or cancer centers. I try to be environmentally conscious with small things I can control and shop local at farmers markets. I have also marched in woman’s rights parades a few times!
What do you do with your time, for work, play, etc?
When I have a little bit of free time I love going to concerts and trying new restaurants. I also like to be outside and hike or bike. My family and friends are super important to me too so anything with them I love!
What is your favorite lift/workout?
My favorite lift is the deadlift or clean. My least is my squat right now but I’m working on it! I do like long chippers and partner wods because you die together! Right now with life and parenting I can only make it in twice a week but know I will be able to come more soon!
What is something about you that would surprise us?
I have been to Coachella five times and even have a tattoo on my foot to commemorate it!
