Congratulations to January Member of the Month, Lynn Connor!
1. When and how did you get started with us?
I had to give up horseback riding competitively due to back issues and Dr. Chad Messina starting recommending CrossFit during my chiropractic appointments. Eventually he stopped just suggesting and told me that I should go to a bring a friend class with his wife (who I had never met). I showed up, introduced myself to Liz, and was hooked from the moment Whitney yelled out that we were going to look better naked!
2. Favorite workout?/Least favorite workout?
Favorite is anything with the bike, especially if it’s a partner wod so I can team up with my favorite bike buddy, Noreen! I know I’m probably the only person to ever announce their love for the bike but it’s true! Least favorite: I try to keep a positive outlook on all the workouts, but always cringe a little when I see burpees just because I’m so slow…
3. What’s the wallpaper on your phone right now?
It’s a sunset picture of the creek near my family’s beach house in Maine. Brings me back to my happy place every time I see it.
4. What’s in your most frequently used emoji tab?
Bet you didn’t even know there was a squid emoji, but now will use it more often than you ever imagined!!!
5. What’s your favorite CFNE tradition?
Not sure if this counts, but I love how Conor always finished every class with a group clap. I love having a routine to wrap up our time together each day.
6. What genre of music would you be?
Christmas music! I would listen to it year round if it was socially acceptable!
7. What’s the last thing you searched for on Google?
“When does Scandal come back?” Yes, I’ll admit that I’m still committed to Olivia Pope. (FYI- January 18th for anyone else who is missing their Shondaland dramas.)
8. What’s your favorite cheat food?
I don’t think there is a better cheat food combination than pizza and beer!
9. What superpower would you want to possess?
I would love to be able to speak every language. I’ve always struggled to learn languages and think being able to communicate to everyone if their first language would be a really cool way to get to know new people!
10. If you could travel anywhere outside of this planet, where would you go and why?
Jupiter because yesterday a commercial said it rains diamonds there. Collecting diamonds on Jupiter is the only way I would be able to fund the trip!
