What’s your favorite workout?

Well if you consider “sleep” a Workout, I would win every WOD, but my favorites are usually heavy weights! Go Big or Go home! I would have to say Grace!

 

When you’re not CrossFitting, you’re…

Playing video games!! But I love to go Snowboarding, surfing, watching football, riding my motorcycle or play sports with friends.
