Occupation: DREAMS Program Supervisor at Terros Health HIV Prevention Department

When did you first start CrossFitting?
I first started Crossfit in October of 2020.
When did you first start training at Papago?
I started training with Papago also in October of 2020. Prior to my current training, high school was the only
other time I worked out.
Favorite CrossFit skill/WOD:
While I haven’t yet mastered this skill, I enjoy learning/developing my hand stand walks. It is very difficult for
sure but, I like knowing that I one day I will be strong enough to accomplish this goal.
Least Favorite skill/WOD:
FRAN is by far my least favorite of the WOD’s. Thrusters seem to be my arch nemesis.
Tell us about your sports & fitness background:
I come from virtually no fitness background. When I first started Crossfit I must admit I was overwhelmed. The
last time I truly worked out so intensely was in my younger years. Though through perseverance I continue to
show up and do the work.
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Take us back to your first WOD… what was it, and how did
it feel?
My friend and co-worker (Cathy Parker) continued to come into the office full of joy, confidence, excitement,
and overall elation. I thought to myself, I want that too. I asked her “what was she doing differently”, she said

Crossfit! I said okay, no thanks. She eventually convinced me to make an appointment with Coach Chris and I
nearly died during the fitness test. But I remember the first thing Coach Chris said to me was listen to your
body. It wasn’t about being the best athlete at Papago. It was about being the best version of myself. I came
back and the first WOD was “The Longest Mile”. Fitting because it seemed to go on forever, but I got through
it. I felt amazing knowing that I pushed myself further than I had in a very long time.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF?
I have definitely lost more than a few inches off of my waist. And I am more conscience of what I eat and drink.
Which ultimately helps me through the workouts and everyday life. In total I have lost 20 lbs since October of
2020.
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit moments:
My interactions with all of the coaches are always a pleasure. There is no judgment, shame, or guilt for where
your skill level is when training. Also, I love the support that I receive from the other members. Cheering each
other on to push through your limits and complete a WOD really helps.
Any advice for people just getting started?
Go for it! Don’t wait or continue to let excuses halt or hinder your decision to experience the best of what you
can do. You don’t know, until you know!
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of the gym?
I love hanging out with friends and family outside of the gym. Relaxing, joking, and laughing in a safe and
judgement free environment is the best medicine for me.

Congratulations Papago CrossFit 2021 January Member of the Month!
Name: Sharon
Age:33
Hometown: Phoenix, AZ

1) Occupation:

I work for the Department of Economic Security as a lead for the Family Assistance Administration but soon will be working for the client liaison/special assistance unit. :)

2)When did you first start taking yoga?

I started yoga around March 2019.

3) When did you first start training at Papago?

Around September of this year.(2020)

4) Favorite Yoga Pose:

There are so many that I find so helpful but lately because I sit a lot at work I find that pigeon pose feels so good afterward for my lower back and hips.

5) Least Favorite yoga pose:
I probably would have to echo what a lot of people say which is boat pose haha.

6) Tell us about your sports & fitness background:

I didn’t play organized sports but I liked the activities in PE. After that I honestly didn’t see the importance of fitness and just had a lot of excuses for not joining a gym and exercising. But then after having health issues related to stress and anxiety, I turned to cardio and then yoga.

7) How did you first get exposed to Papago CrossFit? Take us back to your first class… what was it, and how did it feel?

I started yoga at Ironwood Yoga and my first ever class was with Megan and I regularly took her foundations class. I wanted to keep practicing yoga in person to go along with the virtual yoga environment that Ironwood has now so I came to Papago to keep practicing with her. I think the one thing from the first class was that it was the first time I had practiced in person at a studio in months and seen so many people from Ironwood that I hadn’t seen since March when the shutdowns happened. It was just an amazing feeling to be back on my mat at a studio. I’m sure that at some point in the class Megan told me to relax my trap muscles lol.


8) What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting yoga?

It’s seriously been an amazing journey for me. I found myself in this position around October 2018 where I had zero control over my stress and anxiety, but I also wasn’t paying that much attention to how it was affecting my body, basically shrugging it off. So when I ended up at the doctor and found out that my heart rate was extremely high. It was my cardiologist who told me that I needed to do yoga at my follow up visit after discussing the possibility of two heart surgeries to lower my heart rate. Yoga has seriously helped me reduce my stress and anxiety tremendously and my heart rate is right where my cardiologist was wanting it and rarely goes higher than normal now. On top of that, I feel so much stronger and it’s even helped me to manage inflammation/pain from wrist tendonitis. I feel a huge difference if I don’t practice both mentally and physically.

9) Please share with us any favorite Papago CrossFit moments:

Classes are always so random with the discussions that go on like Saturday’s serial killer discussion lol. I love the humor that Megan and Zara bring to class.


10) Any advice for people just getting started?

Just keep up with your practice because we all come in as a beginner and have to learn poses and yoga’s just too amazing to give up. And Megan and Zara are always nice and patient as you learn and available to assist with modifications.

11) What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of the gym?

I love books and reading. I really enjoy exploring different events and places and have always enjoyed photography. I also spend time with my spoiled dog Snickers (corgi mix). I have been involved in volunteer work for the Homeless ID Project prior to the pandemic which prompted more of an interest in advocacy for the homeless crisis in Arizona.
