Name: Jenn Fox
Tell us a little about yourself:
I'm married to Jonathan Fox, I'm a mom to 3 very rambunctious kids and I work as a legal assistant for a lawfirm in B'ham.What made you start CrossFit Gardendale?
My husband asked me to watch him participate in the 2016 Open, after the first Friday Night Lights I was hooked and knew that I wanted to become a member of that kind of community. Everyone was so encouraging and the atmosphere was electric! I was 100% apprehensive though, up until On-Ramp I had never touched a barbell! That was well over a year ago and I've never looked back!Describe your first workout?
My first official WOD was an open gym WOD. I don't remember all the other movements, I just remember it included 25 burpees at the end of the it and I literally thought my lungs were going to give out before it was over. My most memorable was participating in Murph (I completed 1/2 Murph) last year & this year. My 2018 goal is complete the full Murph.What goals have you accomplished so far?
Well, I've ran a mile without stopping, I participated in the 2017 Open, I've RX'd a couple of WODs, and set some barbell PR's that really surprised me, haha.What goals do you plan to accomplish?
I would love to get better at running, be able to do a kipping pull-up/toe to bar & get better at snatches/overhead squats.What advice would you give to any new members?
Go all in!! Throw caution to the wind and sign up for On-Ramp. I promise you won't regret it. My physical health is not the only thing that has benefited from being a member of CFG, my mentality of what my body is capable of has changed and wow the family/friends I've made at the box!! You can have that experience too.
