EACH MONTH WE HIGHLIGHT AN ATHLETE THAT HAS SHOWN GREAT PROGRESS AND/OR DEDICATION...
November 2017 - Delia Keane
This month we come to a long over-due A of M. Delia has been with us for a few years now, even though most of you haven't trained with her. She's a hard-core 6am-er and has been for a while. I'm sure she'd like to come to a regular class here and there, but as a working Mom of the 2 biggest and best Cobalt cheerleaders, she has to get the WOD in when she can. Delia has been consistently improving since she started with us, but lately has been Rx-ing some of the more difficult WODs, killing it with the gymnastics and pushing herself with the weights. Just this past week she competed in at the WODMother at CrossFit Sanctuary where she showed she can throw down with the best of them. So if you see her one morning, or even around town, tell her Congrats! and Keep up the good work!
Q. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.
A. This should be an easy question, but I always find it hard to talk about me. I live in North Babylon, am the mother of two firery red heads who are my whole life, and I work in the finance department as CHSLI. I consider myself a pretty boring person with a very witty sense of humor.
Q. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH CROSSFIT AND AT CROSSFIT COBALT?
A. I got started with Crossfit about three years ago. I was an on again off again gym goer and the personal trainer I was working with invited me to come check out Crossfit for a week. I was very hesitant to go because I always heard of people getting injured. After a little nudging I decided to go. I got my ass kicked that week, could barely move, and I don't think I finished one wod before the end of the class. I fell in love with it that week. I started at another box. When I heard from another athlete about the coaching at Cobalt, I came over to check it out and ended up staying.
Q. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF CROSSFIT?
A. I have a lot of favorite parts of crossfit. I love the physical and mental challenge of it, the comraderr and encouragement you get from you fellow athletes, and I love the empowering feeling I get from it.
Q. TELL US YOUR MOST MEMORABLE WOD AND WHY…
A. My most memorable WOD was The Seven. I think I may have cried a little bit during this wod the first time I did it. It is still one of my favorites.
Q. WHAT ARE YOUR FUTURE PLANS AND GOALS?
A. This is a tough one.Crossfit wise, my future plan is to get stronger and improve my form.
Q. IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE WORKOUT NAMED AFTER YOU WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A. It would be an AMRAP and involve hang cleans, deadlifts, and handstand push ups.
