Rachael is ultra consistent and is always willing to try new movements and push herself to new heights (literally with box jumps!). She does EXTRA mile runs simply because she wants to get better. Pretty much, she's a badass. Meet our April athlete to watch, Rachael Field!
8 months, 4days, and 10ish hours depending on if I can get out of work in the next 20 minutes! =)
I annoy all my co-workers by talking about CrossFit at least 2x a day. Since moving to LA (5 years ago) I have steadily incorporated working out into my daily routine so inevitably joining Crossfit was just the next logical step. I was pretty intimidated by it at first, but now am completely hooked and enjoy being part of the Cave community.
Typical East Coast/Jewish - Golf, tennis, spinning, wake-boarding and mah jong.
Anything with jump rope or kettlebell swings.
Box Jump (when I make it)
Anything with Burpee Box Jumps
Overhead squat and/or burpees.
It’s a combo really. The first time I completed a box jump without any assistance after 4 months of jumping from plates and when I ran a mile in just over 9 minutes thanks to my friend/life coach Allison Kirksey Lombardo.
Running a mile in less than 9 minutes while staying conscious.
Just try it! It’s hard and intimidating but just take it one step at a time until it isn’t quite so hard and intimidating. Also slow and steady wins the race (actually not in CrossFit) but it helps get me through the workouts which are called WODs (you'll learn that when you join!)
