Shellie EdingtonDream Job: a crossfit gym and home for tumblin4kids What is your favorite workout or movement? Why? Bar muscle ups - because I can do them and most women my age cannot. What do your most dreaded workout or movement? Why? Running because most women my age can do it and I can not. CrossFitters tend to gravitate toward a Paleo diet. What about you, are you super-strict with your diet? Not anymore. I eat clean and often. What's the biggest change you've seen in yourself since beginning CrossFit? I have developed muscles I never knew existed. You'll be competing (for the second year in a row!) in the Masters Division of the CrossFit Games in California. What is it like to be among the fittest on the planet? Surreal and daunting. Those women are really beastly. Shellie EdingtonWhat has Fit Club/CrossFit taught you about yourself? Many small efforts will end up in success. Never stop pushing, never stop trying, never give up. What motivates you to push yourself further? To stand on the podium at the Crossfit Master Games one day. What advice would you give a person new to CrossFit, or who is still unsure about getting started? Commit to minimum of 6 months, 3-4 times a week, listen to your coaches, perfect technique before adding weight or speed and eat clean. Tell us something cool that we might not know about you Mary Lou Retton and I were on the same gymnastics team in Fairmont WV.
