September Member of the Month
Congratulations to Cassie, our Mischief Member of the month for September, 2022. She has had some experience with CrossFit prior to coming to Mischief, but like for many of us, the COVID pandemic forced her to take a pause. She recently joined the gym with her husband, Matthias, and they have already been kicking some butt in the 6:45 am classes. Cassie is always ready to get her day started with a hard workout and continues to push herself to the limit. She receives coaching cues well and is always ready for class. Although just getting back into CrossFit, Cassie was able to push herself through all of the tough workouts of the gym’s in- house competition, and we can’t wait to see what she achieves next!
What motivated you to start CrossFit?
CrossFit had always looked so intriguing to me back before I first started, but I was scared to go until a good friend coaxed me to try a class with her. After that first class I fell in love and joined right away!
How long have you been doing CrossFit?
I did a few years pre-pandemic at CrossFit Turbine in Carol Stream, then took a couple year hiatus and have been at Mischief for just about three months
How has CrossFit improved your daily life?
CrossFit has been the only exercise regimen that has “stuck” for me - I am always excited to go to class, and feel better and stronger after.
How do you stay consistent with your training?
Going to the 6:45am class is great because I love starting my day with a WOD. Also, working out with my husband Matthias is always motivating and helpful!
