Member of The Month WOD “Ali”

From an early age, Ali had always been interested in sports. Having moved around a lot throughout her childhood, soccer had proved a great way to meet new people and make new friends. She played competitively throughout grade school, high school and college.
After graduation, Ali continued on to graduate school for Speech-Language Pathology. With school and work taking up most of her time, working out was no longer a priority.
Once graduating, she tried to get back into shape going to the Y and hot yoga. However, nothing seemed to keep her interest. Her husband Ron, already an avid crossfitter, finally convinced her to try Crossfit. She joined a local box in Ohio in January of 2014 and was hooked.
Fast forward to early 2015. Ali and Ron were moving to Conshy and were in town house hunting and, of course, scouting out a new box. The first (and last) one they came across was Crossfit Thermal. They happened to walk in during the one year anniversary party. After talking to some of the coaches and athletes, the decision was easily made.
Since being a Thermal member, Ali has made many PRs and gains in strength and technique thanks to the great coaching and supportive community. Hopefully there will be more to come!
