Congratulations to Hannah our Member of the Month for October! Hannah has been an incredible part of the wider Lifting Room team and we are truly grateful for her cheery smile and positive energy overtime she come into WOD.
When did you join Lifting Room CrossFit?
What brought you to the Lifting Room?
I had just moved to Northampton, I regularly attended the gym when living in Solihull so started to look for a new gym in the area I was living in but just couldn’t find somewhere I liked and got a good vibe from, then I stumbled upon Lifting Room CrossFit!!
What has been your most memorable moment?
There are so many to choose from!!! But I would say when me and Ana teamed up as HannahAna Bananas (!) and came first in the WOD! I think I pushed myself more when teaming up with other members.
What's been your biggest challenge?
Any of the gymnastic movements, I struggle going upside down!
What’s the best part about working out as part of a CrossFit community?
I get on so well with all of the members, everyone is so supportive and friendly and from the moment I walked in, I felt I could be myself without anybody judging me. It isn’t just a place where I ‘work out’, it’s a place to socialise and just get away from the stresses of life. I have made some amazing friends who I think very highly of. One of the other members could be completely out of breath but they will still find the strength to say ‘keep going!’ during a WOD!
If you could describe the Lifting Room in three words, what would they be?
Motivating, energetic, stress-free
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Do you play another sport or are you part of another club?
I am a singer and I am part of an 80s tribute band and a queen tribute band. I love being on the stage!
What's your goal for the rest of 2017?
Crossfit wise, I would love to progress my pull-ups and be able to link my double unders. I also want to lower my body fat %. Outside of the box, I have recently started a side business for Wedding and event planning and want to increase my social media following and website views!
