Weekly Dose of Awesome

I wanted to start 2017 highlighting an athlete who always gives 100%, strives to be better everyday, and has a wicked sneaky sense of humor.  I have truly enjoyed coaching Ester and getting to know her over the past year.  She is the kind of lady you want on your team and we are so honored that she has made UB her home.  Thanks for being a crazy aunt in the UB family, Ester!  You're 100% our brand of misfit.

One of these things is not like the other.........

When did you first start CrossFitting? May 2015

When did you first start CrossFitting at UB?: January 2016

Favorite WOD: Anything that pushes me to my limits. The harder, heavier & sweatier (is that an actual word?!) the better... the more I hate it, the better the feeling after survival ;).

Least favorite WOD: Well, the ones that make me add another workout after WOD completed ;)

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? A friend told me that its hard and brutal so I assumed I'll love it...

What is an unexpected way CrossFit has affected your life? It made me want to become a healthier person, a stronger athlete and most importantly it gave me a community I call my family away from home.

You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be? Pink... paleeeease...

What inspires you? People who take their fate into their own hands. Fight for what they want and are not afraid to leave their comfort zone in order to reach their goals.
