Athlete Spotlight- Amie G.

March 05, 2017

CrossFit Oakdale is filled with so many cool people who have interesting jobs. Here’s one our fellow cool CFOers, Amie  G.  ALSO – This is Amie’s first Open experience and she did 17.2 twice! just to get some more pull-ups in. She has been a great addition to our CFO family.

 How were you introduced to CFO? When did you realize CrossFit was for you?
 A  friend from CrossFit Sonora started and loved it and suggested it to me, so I found CrossFit Oakdale. I wanted to do something new and different for me, this was perfect. After my first class I was hooked. The hurt so good feeling after- worth it!

What was your first impression ?
 This is hard! But so fun! I knew it was something I could do- not nessecarily easy to do, but that I could do.

 What do you like best about going to CrossFit Oakdale?

I LOVE the people! All the coaches are amazing.  everyone is so nice and supportive no matter what level you are at.  It pushes me to do better and have more confidence.

 I have always wanted to….. Travel- so many interesting places to see or own a bar.

 One word people use to describe me:
 Awesome;)

 Outside of the gym I like to…..
Be with the fam(hubby, Pat, and doggie child, Stewie) And go to the beach!

 Three things in my fridge:
 Yogurt, tortillas &Beer

 The last thing you ate:
 Quesadilla

 Something know one knows about me or would be surprised to know:
 To most people, probably that I do CrossFit! Lol  Maybe more so, that I like to dress up-so many nice, fancy clothes and heels in my closet that I never wear since my daily life around horses and activity requires a slightly different attire.

 Favorite physical activity outside of CrossFit Oakdale:

 Barrel racing jackpots and rodeos/riding horses, hiking
 

Favorite place to eat:
 Tiki tacos- Kauai, Hawaii &  The Tides- Bodega Bay

 Proudest accomplishment:
 Building a successful business (Premier Equine Center) from the ground with my husband and caring for some of the best equine athletes in the world.

 If you could invite anybody to dinner:
 My grandpa- now that I’m a little older than when he passed and I have a greater appreciation for all the stories he had.

 Favorite workout attire:
 Love my reebok  shoes and whatever is cute or comfy.
