Featured Member Friday: Kellie Hasenfratz
February 16, 2018
It’s Featured Member Friday again! Each week we feature one of our members by asking them why they started CrossFit!
1. When did you start CrossFit?
I started CF in July of 2015 I believe.
2. Why did you start CrossFit?
I joined DD for a variety of reasons. The biggest reason for joining was my grandmother had recently fallen (for the 8th or 9th time) and broken 3 bones in her leg. Yes she was in her 90s, but I made a decision right there. Right in that very moment that I received the phone call that I refused to be a statistic as I age. Now I realize that I am far from that age. But I also realize that if you dont “use it, you lose it”. I watched as this life altering fall also impacted my mom as she became a crucial part of my grandmothers routine in her daily life. She literally had no time for anything else. I absolutely refuse to do that to my daughter. So I began. It was incredibly difficult. I was incredibly sore. But I continued to push. I came regularly every week. I have managed to maintain that for about 2 1/2 years. The impact it has had and continues to have far exceeds any and all expectations i had initially. One of the other obvious reasons for joining was I simply was not happy with my body, I still have quite a way to go…..but I am loving the journey. Its about the journey not the finish line!
