Lydia Parra shares her thoughts on CrossFit For Glory – "People I want to have my family around!"

What brought you to CrossFit For Glory?
The purchase of a new family home brought us to the Fishhawk area which subsequently had us searching for a new box! It was literally the first thing we searched for before looking for doctors, schools, etc… lol. Our one year anniversary is coming up this May 2017.17522666 10210009231042264 8934760377180796664 n
 What was your first impression? How has that changed?
My first impression will probably make you laugh, but from a visual point (logo) I thought this was a legit church group affiliated box! No joke! Haha… My impression has changed because … Well, it’s not a church group! Lol At least not in the way I envisioned it. I do however get a great sense of an incredible group of really genuine people that I want to have my family around.

What are you most proud of? What have you achieved?
I am most proud of my family! (Surprise, surprise!) I bet most people feel that way. But I truly am. I’ve been able to implement, within my own family, the importance of being a healthy person and we’ve set a precedent that exercise is second nature to us; something we do because it’s fun!
What’s your next goal to hit?
My next goal is based off of my Olympic weightlifting movements (both the snatch & clean and jerk). I not only want to PR on both of those lifts but I want to improve technically. After getting a taste of my first weightlifting meet, I want to do another meet in which I’m able to place first and be proud of my lifts!

What’s your favorite memory at CrossFit For Glory?
My favorite CFG memory has to be this Intramural Open 2017 & being a part of all the shenanigans that go with it as Team Captain of Shrug Life! Specifically, the theme weeks! Winning Team Spirit several times – tops it too! I love having the opportunity to interact with other people that I normally would not get a chance to & watching them achieve so many firsts!
