The Weekly Dose of Awesome

Dedicated morning crew member Lysa Villeneuve who is determined and is always up for a challenge.  Lysa is often one of the only females in the class and competes with all the boys. I'm constantly inspired by Lysa's motivation to never give up and her ability to push the limits in everything she does. In the up coming months it would be nice to see Lysa take her fitness one step forward and try out a competition, but until then I look forward to seeing you every Tue/Thur!

When did you first start CrossFitting?: I started when I moved to Northern California in Oct.2012

When did you first start CrossFitting at UB?: When our Brand offices moved to San Francisco in March 2017

Favorite WOD: Annie (I love the combo of Double unders and Sit ups)

Least favorite WOD: Fran (Thrusters are my nemesis...)

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? We had a Bootcamp class come to our Offices in Petaluma and after a few weeks the Coaches told me to come to the gym and try out their CrossFit programming which would be more HIIT, weight lifting and more challenging than the programming they were doing at our brand office.

What is an unexpected way CrossFit has affected your life? CrossFit has created a lean, badass, strong and confident person that looks at continuing to crush the day at work after crushing a WOD at UB!

Pick a superpower: Teleportation- to be able to go anywhere at anytime within a matter of seconds!
