Highlights from this week. Gotta play to win!
She is our current #sporthalleflamingobingo leader and recently we asked her a few questions about her experience with us at Sporthalle.
What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
I was looking for something that would give me a good healthy challenge without all pressure of buying into other products/services, that would still give me the guidance I need.
What were some of your concerns about coming into the gym?
I don’t have any concerns at this point. Any that I had have all been taken care of through the awesome empathetic coaches.
What is the biggest impact that New Braunfels CrossFit has made in your life?
This is not just a gym. It is a community that empowers and motivates everyone. It is awesome at being family oriented.
What’s your favorite New Braunfels CrossFit memory?
The first I did my max on deadlift at 270 lbs.
What advice would you give to someone who is on the fence about joining New Braunfels CrossFit?
Just do it! Try a free workout on Saturday. The environment is the same no matter what day of the Week, or what time you come. There is not another place that will offer what NBCF Sportshalle offers. From the coaches to the members, it is all awesome!
Thanks again Amaya. If you see Amaya around the ‘Halle ask her what her bingo secret is and give her a high five!
