June Athlete of the Month

June Athlete of the Month


Erryn Andersen


Hometown:  La Palma, CA (Southern California)  

Age:  35  

When did you first start training at FOCF?:  May 2012  

Favorite WOD:       

Least Favorite WOD:  Anything with back squats  

Tell us about you sports & fitness background:  I have been an “athlete” my whole life and played various spots growing up.  Softball stuck with me and I had the opportunity to play Division I softball at San Diego State University (you know, the Harvard of the West)  

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit?  My husband purchased me a 3-month membership at an auction for my daughter’s school  

Take us back to your first WOD… what was it, and how did it feel?  I remember being very sore from the introductory workout with Tammy…and I have been sore ever since! 

What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health and fitness since starting CF (before/after)?  Flexibility has become so much more important.  I didn’t realize how rigid I was before.  Stretching was never a friend of mine but now I do it every single day.  I know that this will help maintain my long-term health. 

What sort of changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on something like CrossFit that were totally unexpected?  Please share with us any favorite CrossFit / FOCF moments:   My favorite moments have been the first time that I did an unassisted pull-up and the first time that I did a wall-stand (upside down has never been a strength for me)  

Any advice for people just getting started?   Keep coming! 

What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?   Hanging out with my husband and two little girls.  We enjoy sports, camping and boating.  During the summer we can be found either on the river or in the cul-de-saq riding our bikes, scooters or skateboards!
