EACH MONTH WE HIGHLIGHT AN ATHLETE THAT HAS SHOWN GREAT PROGRESS AND/OR DEDICATION...
January 2019 - Sue Brunjess
Congratulations to Sue!
She’s 2019’s first Athlete of the Month. Sue has been with us for some time, but hasn’t always been such a regular. It took her a little while to find the time to spend with us 3 times a week, but since then she’s improved more and more every day. She consistently works hard at refining her skills and developing new ones. A Personal Trainer by trade, Sue is never satisfied and pushes her body to new levels each time she trains. As a new masters athlete, she is also an amazing role model to many other athletes. Her most influential follower however, is her daughter. Sue is an amazing example of what a woman and mom is capable of. Keep it up Sue, you have many more achievements ahead of you!
Q. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF.
A. I’m a 41 yrs old Exercise Physiologist/Personal Trainer. I have been in the health/wellness/fitness industry for about 19 yrs. I’ve been married for 15 years and have a fantastic 9 yr old daughter. I love spending time with my family, cooking, and anything outdoors.
Q. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH CROSSFIT AND AT CROSSFIT COBALT?
A. I have always been involved in some type of sport or activity since I was 12/13 yrs old. Played sports in jr/sr high school then recreational running and intramurals in college and then finally obtained my degree in Exercise Physiology in adulthood, where I truly found my passion. Loved training myself as well as my clients. After many years with “traditional” workouts , I got bored. I wanted a new challenge, that’s when I found Crossfit. I started at a box in my village and after about 1 yr stopped going for various reasons. Then about 2 years later my husband bought me a punchcard to Cobalt. I kept talking to him about how I wanted to join another box....I guess he was listening. I did some research and read Beth’s Bio and experience and knew she’d be an excellent coach and teacher.
Q. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF CROSSFIT?
A. My favorite part of Crossfit is the challenge of learning and hopefully mastering a new skill,exercise,method,etc... My mind and body never get bored or too comfortable.
Q. TELL US YOUR MOST MEMORABLE WOD AND WHY…
A. My most memorable WOD, tough to name just one! There are many!! Which is what I enjoy! I guess Kalsu is up there. Perfect combo of mental and physical stamina and fortitude.
Q. What is your biggest CrossFit goal?
A. My biggest Crossfit goal now is a ring muscle up. (I’m glad my daughter comes with me and is able to see me struggle with this skill and then hopefully master it.)
Q. IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE WORKOUT NAMED AFTER YOU WHAT WOULD IT BE?
A. I think it would be an AMRAP of about 20-25 min which would include running, a barbell complex and pull ups.
