NOVEMBER: CARLA PHILLIPS
Tell us about you sports & fitness background:
I was very active in high school, playing basketball, volleyball and being a cheerleader.
After high school my activities definitely declined. Over the years I've spent a large amount of money on gym memberships. Not only were the gyms sometimes intimidating, the various classes offered eventually became boring and monotonous.
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit?
My daughter wanted to try CrossFit and after visiting CrossFit Tyler with her I decided to try it myself
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
I'm addicted!! Starting off my day with CrossFit has increased my energy level, made me more conscious of making healthy choices and has pushed me to not be afraid to try something new and challenging. I'm actually stronger than I thought!
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?
Shopping, gardening, college football and watching a good movie.
