Hello Shelley!

June 21, 2016


Shelley R. is CFO’s spotlight athlete. Shelley is a treat to coach. She is a sponge….soaking up all she can and trying to get better. Shelley is unassuming and getting strong. Here’s a a little bit more about Shelley.

How were you introduced to CFO? When did you realize CrossFit was for you?

Amanda Hensley introduced me to CFO. I told her I wanted to get back into shape after

having 3 babies and not doing any kind of real workout regiment in over 5 and 1/2 years.

I realized it was for me after the first introductory workout. I loved the intensity, the people,

the environment, and that it was very different than anything I had ever done before. I was


What is your first impression?

My first impression was “this is hard but awesome!” It felt like a community, one that I

wanted to be a part of.

What do like best about going to CrossFit Oakdale?

I like it all. The staff and other members are all friendly, helpful, and motivating. They

made me feel comfortable and inspired to want to get back in shape. I love that my kids

go, and love to watch. It is a healthy environment.

I have always wanted to…..

I have always wanted to go to Maine and stay in a house on the coast.

One word people use to describe me:


Outside of the gym I like to…..

Outside of the gym I like to be with my family. They are my world and life is short.

Three things in my fridge:

Watermelon, chicken, cookies and much much more! lol

The last thing you ate:

Almonds (salt & vinegar flavor)

Something know one knows about me or would be surprised to know:

That is hard to say. I was in the US Air Force for four years. I think that usually surprises

people if the topic comes up.

Favorite physical activity outside of CrossFit Oakdale:

Probably jogging. I am not quick, but it is like meditation for me.

Favorite place to eat:

Given the limited choices in our area and having four kids, I would have to say Outback

Steak House.

Proudest accomplishment:

Being the mother of four boys! And, being the first in my family to complete college with

a Masters degree in Education.

If you could invite anybody to dinner:

Good question! This is hard. Right now in my life, I would have to say President Obama.

Favorite workout attire:

Yoga pants, and a tank top.
