Besides gaining 4,500 square feet of open space and light, by far the best part of opening CrossFit DC Northeast has been welcoming awesome new members to our community — two-legged and four.
Katelyn: I am also known as KT by my family and friends..Andrew: Simply Andy.
Katelyn: I’ve been doing CF a little less than a year now. I was at one box for about 4 months then I stopped and waited for CFDC to open on H St and been steady since they opened! LOVE IT. I thought Andrew was crazy for doing it at first but hey, it fits his personality….Andrew: I CF on/off for almost 3 years until I finally stayed steady for the last year and half. My wife thinks it fits me well because it keeps me sane..
Katelyn: I would say I’m a C. When I’m in the zone, I’m in the zone and when I’m teaming with someone, I’m a good supporter and help/encourage them get through..Andrew: I am definitely an A because I have a competitive streak. I don’t mind to do an individual throw down someday……
Katelyn: Example from the old workout a couple months ago, he hates anything that’s endurance and long… PS I crushed him in this workout. 🙂30 mins EMOM1) 15 DU + 5 Burpees2) 10 Box Jumps + 5 Push Ups3) 5 DB Thrusters + 5 Toe to Bar.Andrew: Triple Crossfit Girls:1) Isabel (30 Snatches for time 135/95 lbs)2) Annie (50-40-30-20-10 Double Unders and Situps)3) Fran 21-15-9 Thrusters and Pullups
Katelyn: I love to bake, non-paleo goodies 🙂 Other than that, you can find us hanging around town with our dog..Andrew: I love to drink craft beers, explore new restaurants, and watch football. Other than that, try to go outdoors as much as possible with our dog Scout.
Best out of 3 – Katelyn won. Damn girl got longer thumb than me. Andrew tried to pull a smooth move and Katelyn just squashed it. Katelyn has the patience and I don’t….
Tell us about a goal you’re working toward (in the gym or beyond)
Katelyn: Trying to master at least one of the gymnastic move. I have such long limbs, it can be difficult for me. I would say kipping pull ups because I am almost there, I can only do singles now..Andrew: My goal is to qualify for CrossFit Regionals as an individual/team competitor. However, I set an ambitious goal of hitting top 5 in any SuperFit competitions..
Katelyn: I guess because Andrew told me to do it. He had been trying to make me to it when he first started it. It just took me a couple years to finally join because I’ve always been traveling either for my old job or for volleyball..Andrew: When I saw the 2009/2010 Crossfit Games on youtube videos, I knew I should try crossfit because it was fun to watch and looks challenging. Since then, it changed my life and I never looked back.
