Leigh Carter CrossFit TTG September 2017 Athlete of the Month!
What made you start CrossFit?
It’s all their fault! My beautiful friends Mike and Mackenzie Sottini had been filling my ears for a while. Then my husband joined…I felt left out, and wanted to try. So, I bid on a six month membership at our school auction, and won!
What is one thing most people don’t know about you?
Most people don’t know, I have a love for elderly people (the more age the better). They have beautiful stories of love, history, and how things “once were”. I am quick to engage with them any time!
What is your one favorite and least favorite movement :
Favorite movement: anything ROMWOD! It’s the BEST day of the week!
Least favorite: burpees. I have a 15 point, flop and transition process (I’m working on it…forever).
What is your ultimate cheat meal?
Home cut french fries from the NC State Fair, with vinegar…good eats! Oh, and an elephant ear with hot fudge. I have two! Thankfully the fair only comes once a year!
Since starting CrossFit, What is your biggest/proudest accomplishment?
For me, making the decision to try CrossFit, and getting over my own self, was big. I still struggle with how to improve without “doing too much”, or wanting to do what I see other athletes do. I’m learning to make the process about me, and how to help myself become better (I need lots of help). TTG has been instrumental with that, as well as having a loving support system at home! The TTG community is beautiful! I’m humbled every day I participate in a workout. It all just keeps me coming back for more! Thank you, Juice, Caitie, Chris, Scot, and Sara!!!
