Congratulations to Vani for earning our August 2018 Athlete of the Month title!!  Anyone who knows Vani, knows that she is bound to make you smile from her infectious smile and laughter at least 5 times in a single class!  Vani was kind enough do to a little Q&A session with us, check it out below!!

  1. How did you start CrossFit? Did you start at Firewall or did you have past experience?
I’ve known one of the CrossFit Framingham owners for a long time (where I started).  As soon as she became a co-owner there, she always asked me to try it… “Let’s go Vani, you should try it! As far as I know you’ll like it.”
And I always said: “I believe so, but I do not want to start and have to stop, because I won’t be able to find the time to go consistently,” since my daughter, Olivia, was not going to School yet.

They only offered the 9 a.m. class with babysitting. I knew it would not always be possible for me to go to the 9 class.  But finally I decided to try it.  I knew it would not be easy for several reasons. One of them was that it had been almost 10 years since I had been doing any kind of physical activity.  And the rest of the story you already know… I FELL IN LOVE!

2. What is your favorite part about CrossFit?

One of the things that impresses the most, is the fact Firewall owners are two “mere children” hahaha … and how they can be so young and so competent to manage a business so well.

3. What is your favorite part about CrossFit Firewall specifically?

There are so many things to love about CrossFit.  Many of them have been physical progress, community, the constant challenges, and workout versatility.

4. Which movement do you look forward to seeing in workouts the most? The least?

I bet you’ll be surprised by the answer: Deadlift! Did you expect the answer was Toes-To-Bar , Am I right ? ?

The least – I have a big list ? I’ll name one: WALL BALLS!

5. Have you gotten any friends or family involved with CrossFit? What have they thought of it?

YES. They are in love just like me.

6. Tell us the funniest moment you’ve experienced at Firewall!

No doubt the funniest day for me, that I could not stop laughing was the day that Damon was lifting weight and farting ?? Laughing so hard now just remembering it ?

7. What would you tell to someone who’s hesitant about trying out CrossFit?

Give yourself a chance to try it, and I guarantee that you will not regret it. Especially if you choose to go to Firewall.

8. What’s the funniest joke you know?

“What do you do for exercise?”
“I lift weights. ??‍♀️ “
“What do you do for cardio”
“I lift weights faster”

? ?

9. What would you do if you won $10,000,000?

I would travel the world ? ?
