Bobby B: Member Profile
This month’s athlete spotlight is Bobbi Buchholz. She quietly has become stronger and faster since starting CrossFit in June 2014 and faithfully comes in the mornings at 5:30. Some of her recent PR’s are 105 lb back squat, 110 clean and jerk, and 165 lb deadlift.
Bobbi told us a little about her CrossFit journey:
- What life changes have you made since starting CFGU?
Making exercise a priority and making time to work out 4 times a week.
- What is your favorite part about CFGU?
One of my favorite parts is the variety CrossFit offers. Every day is something different! I also like how everything is measured and you can see how much you improve. It gives you such a sense of accomplishment and thus a confidence in yourself.
- What would you tell people about GFGU if you met them on the street?
CrossFit is a place where you can find a group of people who are willing to challenge you and support you in your journey toward fitness. With each step you make in your journey you gain more self-confidence.
- What is your favorite movement and why?
I love doing handstands, handstand walks, and handstand push-ups! Being a former gymnast I’ve always enjoyed being upside down.
- Tell us a little about your life outside of CrossFit.
I’m married and have three girls (ages 3, 6, and 8). I also work full-time as a math professor at Hastings College. Most of my time outside of work is spent keeping up with my kids’ activities and being involved in church activities.
She tries hard, has good form on the movements and never gives up. -Doug
I remember when I coached mornings, I always pushed Bobbi to get PRs in her lifts. She always had this humble attitude and wasn’t always sure about what I knew she was capable of, but she listened to me and believed in herself, and she set quite a few PRs in that time. She is a mom, a wif
e and a professor, and she dominates WODs on a daily basis. -Logan
Bobbi is one of our most consistent athletes both in showing up at the gym and improving her performance. She’s a testament to what can be accomplished if you just show up everyday and work hard. -Abigail
