Angie started at Recursive last summer to cross-train for her running. We have seen a lot of strength and personal growth since then!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Angie, and I moved here to get a biology master’s degree at UW-Madison as my first Air Force assignment. I fell in love with marathoning in college, but have always been curious about CrossFit. I took the foundations class in the fall of 2020 and have loved it ever since!
Why did you choose Recursive?
I chose Recursive to meet people and to challenge myself athletically in ways I never have before.
What is your favorite thing about working out at Recursive?
I love the coaches and community. It’s fun to just show up, do the already-planned WOD (no thinking required on my part!), and always leave feeling supported, stronger (and sweaty).
What was the biggest struggle you’ve had the last few months?
The pandemic has been hard on all of us, myself included. CrossFit has really helped me improve my mental health during these trying times.
What is your biggest accomplishment since starting your commitment to a lifestyle change?
I’ve started attending class more regularly and am having fun doing the CrossFit Open! Go Team Blue! 🙂
How has Recursive changed your life?
Recursive has added some much-needed routine to my life while learning how to be an online graduate student.
What advice do you have for people who are nervous to get started?
If a scrawny marathon runner can enjoy CrossFit, anyone can! There’s no shame in scaling (I do all the time).
What is something else fun you’d like to share about yourself?
This year I got engaged on New Year’s Eve and married a week later! My husband, Dylan, is an F-16 pilot at Vance Air Force Base in Oklahoma.
