Name: Eden Hutchinson
How long have you been Crossfitting? I’ve been at Tri Q since April of this year. I’ve done crossfit previously at another box though, so I wasn’t a regular newbie
What is you favorite movement? And workout? Why?
My favorite movement, well it’s a tie between deadlifts and back squats. I don’t know many other things that can make you feel more powerful than pulling a heavy bar or bursting up with it on your back!
My favorite work out would have to be Linda, with Grace and Isabel very close behind! I just love moving heavy weight!
What inspired you to start Crossfit?
I originally eased in to crossfit from a bootcamp program. Even though I fell in to a very serious asthma attack after my first workout, which was Fran, I loved it. I had never experienced a rush like that, or the near death feeling either!
What do you Crossfit for?
I want to be a better me. I want to be healthy, be strong and be an example. I’ve spent my whole life being a big girl, I own it, but I don’t let it stop me. I want to be strong, fit, and look good naked.
What would you say to someone who is new to crossfit?
All of your negativity and self doubt, take it and ball it up then chuck it in the f!@# it bucket. It’s that simple. You can do anything you put your mind too. You don’t have to be the fastest or the strongest, you can start by just showing up! Give it time, learn, be a part of the community. You will get faster and stronger than you ever imagine!
What is you favorite thing about being a member at Tri Q?
I have been really excited about Tri Q from the beginning! I was so thankful to have found a place to just be able to show up and not have to put on a show or act and just do the damn thing! Everyone has been so amazing and inclusive, and that makes such a difference!
Time for your acceptance speech… we wont play you off with music.
I am really surprised and extremely grateful for this acknowledgement! I never thought I would be chosen because we have some of the most awesome people at Tri Q! But I am going to use this opportunity to make my pledge to be the biggest and baddest I can be!
