This week we catch up with another hard working Med student, Johanna (Jo) Sehloff — Crossfitting since: October 2015 — A little about yourself: I grew up and went to college all within a one-mile radius in Mankato, MN. After spending a year teaching in the Dominican Republic, I ended up back in the Midwest here in Wauwatosa. I am currently a third-year medical student at the Medical College of Wisconsin with hopes and dreams of going into Pediatrics come graduation next May. The majority of my time is filled with studying and working for no pay, but I also spend a lot of time with Hobbes the puppy, who comes with to the gym most days. I love Ultimate Frisbee, making puzzles, the mountains, peanut butter, morning runs, Harry Potter, coffee, card games, the Packers, and donuts — How did you get into CrossFit? My older brother had joined a box back in the Twin Cities and had spent months telling me how great it was before I finally decided to give it a try. I looked up CrossFit gyms in the Milwaukee area, found Badger because it was the closest one to bike to and headed over. I actually biked past our gym a couple of times before I finally found it – the sign wasn’t up on the exterior yet – and the rest is history — How has CrossFit changed you outside the gym? I feel better and believe I have greater self-confidence than ever before. The biggest positive is probably that the numbers I am lifting in the gym now matter more than a number on a scale — What makes Badger CrossFit unique? I look forward to coming to the gym not only because of the workouts but also because I love the people I get to see when I’m here — Advice for people just getting started: Please, please don’t be afraid of failing, possibly looking stupid, or asking too many questions. Prior to showing up at Badger, I had never sat on a rower or snatched in my life, and quickly learned I couldn’t do a proper push-up. I believe you just have to start and you just have to try. The coaching staff and supportive community at this gym is second to none and with a bit of hard work you will be well on your way #membermonday #motivation #motivationmonday #badgerbuilt #badgercrossfit #wauwatosafitness
