This week we check in with our 5am Ring Leader, Beckie Beach! (Or Becks, Rebecca, Becka, Beach… it all depends on when/where you met me or how much trouble I'm in…) — Crossfitting since: So, it’s been just over three years since I joined Badger, but who really knows exactly what I was doing in class those first two years… I was definitely scaling the scales movements when I first started. 👍🏽 — A little about yourself: As the self appointed leader of the 5am class… kidding, although, I am an extreme extrovert, so I do a lot of the chatting at that ridiculous hour, therefore you get to know me real quick if you come to that class! My husband and I have two hilarious children and a miniature schnauzer named Mister that wears a bow tie. I’m the Director of Marketing (my background is in graphic design) but ideally I’d like to change that to Fun Meister/Corporate Mom because it seems more fitting. I’m very proficient at sarcasm AND swearing. I love fishing, building/fixing things (especially when it involves power tools), inappropriate jokes, gardening and I’m getting into golf – holy crap… I think I might actually be a dirty old man. 😳 — How did you get into CrossFit? I have a “don’t knock it until you try it” personality, so when I saw a couple friends post things on the interwebs about it and saw some people in Badger t-shirts at a run, I figured I’d check it out. So, I took a free class… Couldn’t walk for a week… Made the ‘obvious’ choice to sign up for more! Luckily, after two weeks of getting my happy-ass handed to me, my husband knew that this battle wasn’t going to end there so he actually signed me up for a membership as a gift. So y’all can thank him when I grace you with my presence. 😊 — How has CrossFit changed you outside the gym? It’s funny because people’s perception of me is SO different now. I’m typically introduced like this: “she does CrossFit, so don’t mess with her!” I’m definitely a better person the days that I WOD – it might be because I get to spend an hour with a gaggle of my buddies or it might be some weird science-y health reason, but either way, it definitely gets me ready to conquer the day. 👍🏽
