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.

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?

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.”

THE RESULTS ARE HERE! I MET MY GOAL! 🏆 COVID HAD ME! I gained a lot of weight during the pandemic and in March I hit 168 pounds. An ALL TIME HIGH! In 15 weeks, I lost FORTY POUNDS, reduced my body fat by SIXTEEN PERCENT and took TEN inches off my waist alone!! 🏋️‍♀️ I NEVER could have accomplished this without the encouragement and support of the CrossFit 3 Strands community! Especially that of Coach Blyth K. Boyer!! ❤️ In addition to pushing me during my CrossFit WODs, she trained me to eat for the best health and performance of my life! No pills or fasting, just eating clean, reducing my portions, and keeping my sugar intake low. I stayed consistent and trusted the progressions. This is where it has landed me.🌟 I also incorporated meditation DAILY which has become a HUGE passion for me. I now start each day by connecting to what I’m feeling in my heart. Then, I set a clear intention and visualize what I want to create.🧘‍♀️ I know this practice set me up for success and kept me on course when the going got tough! Now I’m more motivated than EVER to keep pushing for the greatest version of me. THIS is the version I want my girls to see. 💗 And nothing could be more motivating! Thank you so much Coach Blyth! And thank you to the entire CrossFit 3 Strands community! I am BEYOND grateful for you! 🙏❤️

This is the difference 3 months of consistency can make!! My CrossFit Kid athlete, Amara started in my kids' program as soon as we were allowed to re-open after quarantine in May 2020. During every class, we would spend a portion of class time working on the air squat. In the beginning, Amara would squat on her toes, so I started having her squat to a target (here to the edge of a crate - top picture) while working on her form and positioning while maintaining stability in her body to achieve solid movement. By providing her clear cues and a simpler progression that is understandable to kids, over the course of the last 3 months of consistency, you can see how much stronger her squat is now in the bottom picture. By the end of August in the bottom picture, Amara is squatting with a 5-pound training bar. As much as she was anxious to lift a bar when she first started in May, I told her form first, weight second. Amara stayed so patient and respected the process !! Just look at the progress! Keep it up, Amara! I am so proud of you! #high5 - Coach Blyth 🙌
