December Member of the Month

December 30, 2016

The finals days of 2016 and our final Member of the month for the year! We hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and are looking forward to kick starting 2017 with you! 
Our December member of the month was undeniably a top pick between us coaches, everyone has noticed her dedication and the improvements that have come hand in hand with that. 
Nicole Margolius, congratulations! Lets see what more you can achieve in 2017.
A few questions and answers from Nicole below: 

How long have you been CrossFitting and Why do you CrossFit? 
I’ve been CrossFitting since around June of this year (6 months) and I keep coming back because I love surprising myself with what I’m actually capable of doing. There are also so many different movements that it doesn’t get monotonous and your levels of skill is different for each that there is always something to improve.

What do you love about CrossFit/Health101? 
The CrossFit/Health101 community is UNBELIEVABLE! From the coaches to the members, no matter how hard the workout or how much I’m struggling I have a team of supporters behind me, encouraging me to push to my limits! There are no half efforts, everyone gives their everything with each WOD and we share each other’s pride in our achievements! 

What’s your favorite movement?
 For Barbell work I enjoy the Clean and also quite enjoy Kettle Bell Clean and Jerk.

What’s your favorite WOD?
 No specific WOD that I can think of as my best – Can exclude anything with burpees! I do enjoy partner WOD’s … I love not only working hard for myself but also working hard for someone else. It really motivates me.

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
Surprisingly, although you’re physically pushing yourself, I have more energy now than I’ve ever had before. My family are seeing me at my best, motivated, engaged and more importantly healthy. Getting to the box in the mornings has gone from being a time-luxury I afforded myself to an absolute necessity to keep me balanced.

 What is something that we don’t know about you?  (Interesting fact, accomplishment you are proud of, obscure/unique talent, funny story, etc.). 
When I was around 14/15, I used to do martial arts and received provincial colours for Kung Fu in South Africa. Needless to say most of those skills are dead and gone =)
