Member of the Month 1/2 February 2020 - Barbara Carey

When, how and why did you get started with us? Never thought of doing CrossFit until Brad got me the Foundations class + lifetime membership for Mother's Day in 2017. I had no option! 

But I'm glad I started, I love the workouts and the people at CrossFit Claremont. What would be your dream workout? I love workouts with rests and a barbell

5 rounds Every 4:00 

15 Cal Row 

10 Hang Power Cleans 

10 Box Jumps  What workout would you want to avoid? Rope climbs, not worth the scars on my legs  Favourite Crossfit Athlete? Jes Bowen - not sure she competes professionally though. What's the best thing you own that cost under $100? My waterproof mascara  Biggest fashion mistake you’ve ever made? When I was 10 I let my mum dress me for school in a blue wool jumpsuit that looked like I was from the 50's. Even my best friends laughed at me. I got traumatized and never let my mum dress me ever again. Favourite quote? "The Sweet is never as sweet without the sour, and I know sour, which allows me to appreciate the sweet"  What's your fav 90s jam? I'm an 80's kind of girl so I would say the hard rock bands from late 80's, early 90's. (Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Whitesnake, Guns n Roses, Poison, you get the idea)  Last thing you watched on TV? Currently, binge-watching Mad Men on Netflix (I know, I'm a little behind in times) Funniest thing that happened to you recently? I recently had to attend a work conference from home and I naively asked my 2yrs old daughter Lilly to watch Lachy while I was on a call. I just said "Lilly, mommy has a very important call that I need to take, please take care of baby brother" She said "of course mommy!" Needless to say, it was a disaster, Lachy started screaming in the middle of the call and Lilly was yelling even harder trying to make him be quiet. I muted myself from the call and ran into the living room to check if he was alive, stuck a dummy in his mouth and went back to the room where I was taking the call. Two seconds later, Lilly smashes the door open asking me what I was doing and who I was talking to right when it was my time to speak in the call. It was so stressful but kind of funny at the same time. Thankfully everyone understood as I'm still on maternity leave but not sure I will be able to handle them both at home when I'm officially back at work next month!  Most used emoji? 🍾🎉🎈 If you could have one other CrossFit Claremont members body part, what would it be? Coach Kat's abs and legs.
