Meet CrossFit Elkhart’s yoga instructor and calisthenic’s group leader, Sami!
When did you start CrossFit?
I started in January of 2015.
How long have you been coaching/instructing?
I’ve taught yoga at our box for the past year. I also taught while I was in college.
What’s your favorite WOD or movement?
It’s really tough for me to just isolate one as a favorite as I have many! I love deadlifts and cleans but if I had to pick one I would probably say burpees (I know I’m weird but you can’t pick what you are good at!), or Turkish get-ups depending on the day.
Outside of working out, what is your favorite hobby/interest?
Reading, exploring new places/things and cooking/baking.
Favorite sports team:
Chicago Cubs (and yes I was a fan long before they won!)
Tell us one interesting thing about yourself:
I spent three weeks in Japan while my ex-husband lived there for his externship.
