We are excited to highlight Michelle Baca! She has been a member for 15 months and is an awesome part of our community…
Coach Calvin says….
- She always comes into the box so positive, smilin’, and stylin’!
- She has all the good gear! The knee wraps, weight belts, Lift Like Lindsey shirt, oly shoes.
- She has an excellent rack position for her jerk!
- She is very consistent.
1. When is your favorite time to WOD? What is the difference between those classes?
Because of the weather…..9:00 a.m. in the summer & 3:30 p.m. in the winter.
The difference between the classes is that 9:00 a.m. is very social and 3:30 p.m. means business
2. What are some of your favorite movements?
Dead hang pull-ups.
When I first started my max front squat was 42 pounds. On Tuesday I did 125 pound front squat X 2!

Not endurance day…..no running!

Always making new friends & I really like holiday workouts.
5. What keeps you coming back to CDR?
I am a glutton for pain!
6. Why CDR?
When I was thinking about joining CrossFit Josh Delgado told me, “If you’re going to go to a CrossFit, you better go to the best.”
6. How has your commitment to CDR affected your life outside of the box?
Coming to CDR has increased my confidence, I don’t drink as much anymore, and it has helped me believe that I can do anything!!

8. What do you do for work?
I’m an RN in ICU/Trauma.
