We’re so excited to introduce our Spotlight Athlete of the month of August is Mary! Mary always shows up to the gym with a big smile on her face and gives it her best every time and then gives a little more. She is hungry to learn and always ready to get to work. Mary is also very supportive of her fellow athletes in class and encourages them to reach their goals. Mary embodies what the CrossFit 3 Strands Community is all about! We asked Mary a few questions about her time here with us. Check out what she said below. 1 - Tell us about you. I'm a true Texas native, grew up in the Austin/Round Rock area. I'm a strong independent and hardworking single mom who has built a successful career over 20 years at Dell Technologies. I try not to take things too serious and enjoy what life has to offer. I enjoy taking care of my daughter, as well as spending time with friends and family. Things I really like are sunny days on a patio, great food and a good wine. And I'm always game for traveling somewhere new and exciting. 2 - What brought you to CrossFit? I was looking for a way to improve my health and some type of fitness that I could get addicted to. #addictedtobeingstrong 3 - What would you tell someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit? Don’t let the fear of other people’s opinions keep you from doing what you want. If you want to lift weights, then lift weights! JUST DO IT!! 😃 4 - What is the one thing that you like about CrossFit 3 Strands? The community of athletes and coaches that support each other. It's about building each other up and working hard. 5 - What are your future Goals/Plans? Stay consistent. Get to the next level and make this a lifestyle. Not going to give up on this CrossFit journey. Oh and continue to hit those PRs! 😊

We’re so excited to introduce our Spotlight Athlete for the month of September is Sarah! Sarah is one of those that comes to the gym in a quiet manner, works incredibly hard not looking for any applause or attention, works out in the morning and all while working a job and taking care of her family. Sarah has been with us for a year and a half now and her transformation is a true testament to what hard work and complete focus and dedication can accomplish. You will never hear her complain and you rarely will see her without her trademark smile. She’s an inspiration for anyone who’s been wondering if the CrossFit methodology is for everyone. We asked Sarah a few questions about her time here with us. Check out what she said below. “1 - I'm an Australian-American dual citizen and have lived in the Austin area for almost 13 years. I'm married to a Texan and we made a Texan who turns 3 on Monday. I love all sports and have been involved in lots of different kinds including tennis, showjumping, dressage, track, soccer, netball (it's a British thing), triathlons, distance running, and now CrossFit! 2 - Several people in my neighborhood running group were already at CF3S with rave reviews. I was ready to try something different so I joined up. Loved it from the first class. 3 - Anybody can do CrossFit, it's for all body types and all fitness levels. It's fun and very much a team spirit atmosphere. 4 - Definitely the coaches! I work with Coach Al and Coach Blyth and have benefited so much from their patient and caring coaching style. 5 - In terms of fitness, I just want to build and maintain muscle mass as I get older (gulp). I want to stay fit and healthy so I can play with my little guy and have enough energy to keep up with him. Oh and obviously I want to be able to rock a bikini, who doesn't?”

We’re so excited to introduce our Spotlight Athlete for July is Dave! Dave one of those guys who comes to the gym in a quiet manner, works incredibly hard not looking for any applause or attention, generally works out at 5am all while working full time and taking care of his family! He is a true testament to what hard work and complete focus and dedication can accomplish. He’s an inspiration for anyone who’s been wondering if the CrossFit methodology is for everyone. We asked Dave a few questions about his time with us. Check out what he said below. “1 - Tell us about you. I’m married with 3 kids 16,13,10 when not at work for a large General Contractor I’m usually running one or more of my kids around to some form of sports. Originally from Kansas but we’ve lived in Austin for 8 years Texas for 17. Love the Round Rock / Pflugerville area. I’ve always been involved in sports. Growing up I was in competitive waterskiing, football, and pole vaulting. I love watching my kids complete and I just try to stay in good enough shape to beat them at most things. We love being outdoors camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and CrossFit helps just staying active. 2 - What brought you to the gym? I actually started CrossFit 10 years ago in Louisiana. After moving to Houston and then to Austin it’s been a on and off love affair with working out, but I keep coming back to CrossFit and really enjoy the workouts. 3 - What would you tell someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit? Try it out for at least a week. Try different times, and remember don’t judge yourself against the other people. We all started on a first day. 4 - What is the one thing that you like about CrossFit 3 Strands? The people. No matter what time I come. The attitude in the gym is the same. It’s amazing how the 5am and the 6:30pm classes have the same energy. 5 - What are your future Goals/Plans? I need to get back to consistently coming. I’ve been able to float for the last couple of months but, 5am is going to become my regular again in the near future. And double unders, I still can’t do more the 5 in a row.”
