COMO AMBASSADORS

MELISSA DANIELS

Where’s your hometown? Who are you outside of CrossFit COMO?

Mendon, Missouri
I work at the University of Missouri as the Retail Manager for Tiger Garden (student run floral shop on campus). I also own my own business as a Mary Kay consultant!

When did you first start training at CrossFit COMO?

October 2013

 

What is your sports & fitness background?

I played competitive fast pitch softball as a pitcher starting at the age of 14. I had the opportunity to play in college, but decided it was time to move on to other things and attend the University of Missouri. After I hung up my cleats I had the opportunity to coach a competitive softball team for the past few years and absolutely loved it. Because of my softball background, I’ve always been competitive and I think that’s one of the main reasons I love CrossFit so much. It’s not about beating others in a wod…it’s all about challenging and beating yourself!

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CrossFit COMO?

Well I’ve definitely seen a positive change in my muscle tone! I also have seen a distinct change in my eating habits. Before I took one of our nutrition challenges, I hardly ever ate vegetables…but now I try not to go a meal without them!!

What’s your favorite CrossFit COMO memory?

Unfortunately one of my friends that I started CrossFit COMO with has since had to move away, but I think some of my best memories were made with her and when she’s able to come back and visit!

What goal are you currently working towards?

I’m working on shedding a few pounds and getting to wear I don’t need to scale my pullups!

Any advice for people just getting started or new to CrossFit?

Slow and steady wins the race. Don’t try to push yourself too hard at the beginning. Piling on a bunch of weight at the beginning isn’t going to help you prove yourself. Work on your technique and form first! Take the advice the coaches give you and work on it every time. You’ll get there!
