JESSICA SLAUGHTER

COACHING CREDENTIALS:

CERTIFIED CROSSFIT LEVEL 1 TRAINER

Favorite CF Workout/type of workout:

I like 15 minute AMRAPS. Cleans, overhead squats, wall balls, walking lunges....these movements make me happy. I also LOVE partner WODS. 

 

Fitness Background:

None! Crossfit was my first foray into fitness and it fit like a glove. 

 

Why you do CrossFit:

I CrossFit for the way it makes me feel in my body and in my head. It's a struggle. It's energizing. It gives me goals and accomplishments. I love the community-- meeting people from all walks of life who are all working to have a more fit and full life. 

 

Greatest CrossFit memory/experience:

Participating in Festivus is a highlight for me. I loved looking around at the girls I was working out with--each of us facing favorite movements AND goats; each of us with bundles of nerves but doing it anyway; each of us with different body types and backgrounds; each of us working hard to succeed; each of us wanting, more than anything, to see each other succeed....it was an amazing CrossFit community experience.
