November Athlete of Month – Cassie McClure

Congratulations to our November Athlete of the Month, Cassie McClure. If you know Cassie, then you know that she is the definition of consistency and determination. Starting at CFRR last year, she’s been coming to the 6:15am class every MWF like clockwork, emphasis on the WORK.

Cassie pushes herself everyday and I’m consistently impressed with her work ethic and drive to get better no matter what the movement. She has improved many aspects including her Olympic lifting, overall strength and continues to crush running like she has since she began. She is absolutely deserving of being named ATOM and we can’t wait to see what progress she makes in the years to come!

1) What is your biggest motivation?

My sister and I are very competitive. So being able to beat her in all life things has been a big motivation. 🙂

2) Your favorite quote or words to live by?

I’ll leave tomorrow’s problem to tomorrow me -Saitama

3) What is your current training goals/PRs?

Be able to lift more weight

4) Take us back to your first day of CrossFit… How did you feel? How do you compare it to workouts today?

The first day I wasn’t sure what weight to go with for the actual work out part but once I figured out using the L2 and L3 weights it’s pretty easy to find a weight that’ll work.

5) What advice do you have for new athletes just starting out in CrossFit?

Chill, you’ll make it.

6) Tell us about a moment you felt most proud of yourself during a workout?

I don’t have a moment in particular but because I work in the morning any day I feel like I’ve had a good work out it sets a good tone for the rest of the day

7) What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?

I draw kinda often paint rarely and I work of random projects.

8) What’s your favorite part of CrossFit Round Rock?

I haven’t actually been to another CrossFit gym so I have nothing to compare it to but I like having my own little box in the gym.

9) If you could create a WOD and name it for yourself, what would it be?

A WOD with limited cardio and it is more low rep than high reps I would call it I hate cardio.

10) How has your diet changed since starting CrossFit (if it has), and what foods do you rely on most?

Not anything major just try to get protein with every meal.
