My awesome 6 am client Vivian....

This is me and my 6 am client V....she has changed by leaps and bounds since starting CrossFit back in June. She's lost around 30 pounds, gotten incredibly stronger than before and she inspires all around her. I started training her back at the end of December and since that time she has gotten faster on her timed runs, and we've increased the weight on several of the workout. I am beyond proud of her and what she has accomplished at CrossFit. Way to go Vivian!!!

On Wednesday this is the workout I gave her :

run for warm up (not timed)
stick stretches - practice deadlift and correct movement.

21 - 15 - 9
deadlift at 135 pounds
box jump
jumping ring dipps

x3 rounds
Her time was 15:42 and she kicked ASS!!! Brendan and I cheered her on when we noticed that she was close to beating a friends time....she pushed hard and managed to beat his time - cutting it close!!

Afterwards we worked on static hold handstands. She held it for 1:07. Getting into a handstand has been a skill that she was not able to do before being heavier. I -am -proud of you - say I am proud of you!!! Can't wait for tomorrow to train her again!!!

Fantastic! I am always inspired by people who are able to take control of their lives and improve themselves through fitness. It must be a wonderful feeling to be able to directly affect someone that way. Great job, Shari!!
