Today's Femme Fatale is one of Coach Leslie's favorite workouts and it's been two years since she visited us for Femme Fatale Week.
She debuted on the CrossFit Mainsite on Sunday, May 25, 2003.
She acquired her name on Monday, September 22, 2003 after she had been programmed 4 times.
She is particularly spicy because you must hold on to the bar for each set. You must do this as touch and go at floor only. Even a re-grip off the floor is a foul. No dumping. Use same load for each set. Rest as needed between sets. Good luck!
Margo, Why do you do CrossFit?
What was your fitness, CrossFit, or yoga "life" like before you started training with True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga.
I would run fairly frequently, try to do yoga classes, and spend as much time as I could outside hiking, backpacking, etc... but was not very consistent with my activity.
What brought you to True Spirit CrossFit & Yoga in the first place?
My step-mom had a discount as a teacher, and we were both excited to have a workout routine that would hold us responsible and keep us going consistently!
What was your first impression? Has that changed?
I was definitely intimidated at first, as I never attended a gym before this, but I have become much less intimidated since, and feel I can work at whatever level I need to on a given day.
What was the first thing fun or positive thing you experienced while training with us?
One big accomplishment was realizing that I could touch my toes for the first time ever! I didn't think that my flexibility would increase much but it really has!
Are you working on any special CrossFit related skill now?
I am working towards my pull-ups.
How has you life changed since training with TSCF?
I am more confident while doing outdoor activities like skiing, ice skating, and hiking, and I feel like it would be harder for me to get hurt while doing them.
What's your favorite True Spirit CrossFit memory?
During the Veterans' Day week, my mom and I had to body carry each other, and could not stop laughing!
