Aneda Jackson, CrossFit TTG July 2019 Athlete of the Month!
1.What made you start CrossFit?
A high school buddy and his wife started a couple years before me and it looked so fun. After having my third son and working through a shoulder impingement I decided I wanted to be STRONGER, and CrossFit was a natural fit for me.
2.What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
I’m an extreme extrovert. I’m always itching to go out or host a gathering!
3.What is your one favorite and least favorite movement in CrossFit?
Favorite movement: ?
Least favorite: ?
Muscle ups 🤣 But I will make a real pull-up happen by the time we swear in the next president dammit.
4.What is your ultimate cheat meal?
Pizza. Always pizza.
5. Since starting CrossFit, What is your biggest/proudest accomplishment.
At the box—figuring out the technical movements and how to pace *and* push myself through all of the fun AMRAP combinations. Outside of the box—surviving divorce and extreme work insanity, and feeling like a whole, healthy person coming out the other side.
6.What are your top 3 favorite movies of all time?
1-Waterboy (and most Adam Sandler dumb comedies / romcom)
2-Blood Done Sign My Name (really a fan of the book which was exceptional)
3-O Brother Where Art Thou
7.What is your favorite past time outside of the gym?
Watching football, especially my son playing.
