Justine, Justine, Justine she’s amazing, she’s phenomenal, she’s SUPER WOMAN! You know it is going to be a great day when you are taking class with Justine, her positive energy and motivating spirit makes her the one you want to see working next to you in the WOD.
In March 2012 Justine came know Brooks Garrett and Crossfit as she began personal training with Brooks. She had a friend that would…not…stop…talking about Crossfit and how much she would like it, so she signed up and has never looked back while her friend has never been back; his loss! We are so thankful that Justine found Brooks in that random building, in the middle of a field, down an old country road, that is our original location Mount Olive, NC (for you Goldsboro city folks). She did not let a couple cob webs scare her off, she stuck it out and has become an AWESOME CROSSFITTER!
There is a gravity defining moment when you go to do a pull-up WITHOUT A BAND for the first time and you actually get to see the top of that bar! You get up there and come back down without getting slapped in the face with a sweaty rubber band and you’re like “YESSSS” I just did that! This was Justine’s proudest moments at CFGB!! And now she dominates them on a regular basis like a champ! Another very proud moment for her was when her and Melissa Lee, another superstar CFGB member, entered and tackled their first competition!
So, if you didn’t know Justine is strong and you can watch a girl clean a barbell the right way when you see her perform her favorite lift! She good certainly teach the Merry Maids a thing or two! GRACE on the board and a barbell in her hand, she is a happy girl! 30 Ground-to-Overheads later it been a good day for Justine! With the things we love there are always the things we want to be better at; working on her snatch and strict pull-ups will be her goals that will be reached in 2014!
Justine is such a pleasure to workout with, all of us at CFGB enjoy her enthusiasm! In return she would like to say “I love the people of CF, the new people she has met and the friends she has made!” Along with the people Justine appreciates the challenge presented to her day-to-day, and the opportunity to work on something else. This is the attitude that Crossfitters unitedly encompass, yea this is tough, but Im going to do it and I am going to like it, sooner or later.
And to leave you with a little advice from one of our mighty women of CFGB, “Just enjoy it. This is a time to push yourself and you will be surprised by what your body can do, but in the end it is about being healthy and happy. It should be a fun part of your day that you get to spend with great people.” Thank you Justine, for the bringing your positive attitude to CFGB each day! We appreciate you and are very thankful you stuck with us! Congratulations on your accomplishments and your ability to keep pushing (and pulling) to new heights!
