Member of the Month – Hillary Hauguel

Why did you choose to train with us instead of another gym?

I knew some really great people (a.k.a. Jeff Bushey J) who encouraged me to come to CrossFit Fort Wayne and I was interested in the 101 course.

Was there anything that made you hesitate about becoming a member with us initially? If so, what was it? And how did we help you overcome them?

I was concerned that I would not have the physical capability to participate or keep up in the workouts, but the coaches advised different ways in which I could modify the workout, and still work targeted muscle groups.

How would you describe the coaching you receive?

The coaches at CrossFit Fort Wayne are there for me every step of the way.  They know what I am capable of and encourage me to push myself.

How would you describe the community?

The people at CrossFit Fort Wayne are what keeps me coming back.  They are a community and a support group.  They remind me that I’m stronger than I think, they’re the ones cheering me on when I’m the last one done, and they’re great friends.

If you were to refer a friend to us, what would you tell them? 

CFFW is a great place to improve your fitness, improve yourself, and make new friends.

Thursday – Purpose / Achievement


– Strength: Week 1 of Front Box Squats. These should not be terribly heavy and sets should be perfect in terms of technique. Make sure you keep your core tight/engaged. We will perform these for the next two weeks.

– Metcon: For Purpose and Achievement – squat cleans are intended to be heavier today. Pull-ups are not intended to be done UB so challenge yourself today. This workout is intended to be more of a “grind.”
