“Bonnie is one of our most consistent members, and she loves a hard metcon! I always enjoy talking to her about what shows we’re watching and how about in her next life she said she’d be covered in tattoos haha!”- Coach Jake

Tell us about you!

I work for Beacon Roofing Supply as an Administrative Senior and have been with the company for 18 years.  I have also moonlighted as a Line Dance instructor for around 15 years.  I currently go to grad school at Framingham State.  My husband and I live in Canton with our two parrots and there is usually a game on the T.V. or radio at our house.  

What was it about CrossFit Torque that made you want to join?

 I visited a total of five ‘boxes’ in the summer of 2013 before joining Torque.  Crossfit Torque had the best schedule, location, price, amenities, and ‘vibe’ so it was a no brainer.

What has kept you coming back to Torque, day after day??

The location!  I have to drive past it after work to get anywhere that I need to go.  That darn sign out front with the motivational sayings keeps me coming back.

First free-standing handstand – It happened sometime in the past year and I was so excited, I screamed like a little girl.

What has been your biggest challenge?

Snatches!  I have been at Crossfit long enough to be in 3 different age categories for the Open.  Each year, I look to see if the snatch weight has dropped down to something that I can do but it annoyingly stays at around 5-10 pounds out of reach, (OK, maybe 10-20 pounds out of reach).

What is your favorite CF movement to do?

Overhead Squats!

What piece of advice would you give to someone who is looking to start CrossFit but hasn’t yet?

Stop whining and go.
