EACH MONTH WE HIGHLIGHT AN ATHLETE THAT HAS SHOWN GREAT PROGRESS AND/OR DEDICATION...
September 2019 - Eleanor Rivera
Who works out at 6am?? Believe it or not there is a handful of very dedicated fellow-athletes that do it almost every day. One of those long-time 6AMers, and this month’s Athlete of the Month is Eleanor Rivera!
Eleanor is super dedicated to staying fit. A busy, working-mom, 6am is where you’ll find her training. It’s a bit of a different vibe that early, but Eleanor is there to work. She’s always open to coaching, and improving her form.
Recently she's been stepping it up even more, adding in seam personal training, and seeing what else she is capable of. If you’re ever up that early, stop in and say “Hi” to the crew, and congratulations to Eleanor!
Q. TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND HOW YOU GOT STARTED.
A. I’m married and have 5 sons, I love to stay active with my kids. My favorite thing to do with my kids is in-line skating! My youngest loves to work out with me with my dumb bells.
Q. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED WITH CROSSFIT AND AT CROSSFIT COBALT?
A. I started Crossfit because I was looking to work out in a group. I feel more motivated working out with other people. I chose Cobalt because it was close to my house. I stayed at Cobalt because of the community. Everyone at Cobalt makes you feel included and everyone encourages each other. The coaches are all very supportive and give me the push that I really need.
Q. What is your favorite part of Crossfit?
A. My favorite part of Crossfit is the community!
Q. TELL US YOUR MOST MEMORABLE WOD AND WHY…
A. My favorite WODs are ones that have tire flips, rope climbs, and dead lifts. I love the strength part of Crossfit.
Q. What is your biggest CrossFit goal?
A. My biggest goal in Crossfit is to stay healthy as I get older. Yes I would love to do hand stand push ups and double Unders. But my real goal is to be healthy.
