This week we check in with one of our 9:15am regulars, Meghann Badger! Yes my last name is Badger – I’m not a weirdo that changed it to Badger because I love Badger Crossfit. (Few people have asked if it’s legit my last name). — Crossfitting since: January of 2012. — A little about yourself: Hey Yo! Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. No I’m not Mormon, it’s a common question, and no my husband doesn’t have more than 1 wife. We have two boys and have fallen in love with what the Midwest has to offer. We have lived in several different areas all over the U.S., by far the Midwest has been the friendliest place we have lived. It will be a very sad when we are told we have to move. — How did you get into CrossFit? I got into CrossFit 6 years ago after I had my first son. We had just moved to New Hampshire from Charleston, SC. I had packed on some LBS! I enjoyed the Southern Food at it’s finest and also got pregnant. I knew something needed to change! I walked in to a CrossFit in Portsmouth for the typical New Years Day special and signed up for the 3 month elements class and loved every moment of it. Joining 3 months post partum was so difficult, sleepless nights, not having much self esteem after having a baby but CrossFit literally changed that all. — How has CrossFit changed you outside the gym? One area that I think has changed the most is my diet, I walked in naïve and just thought I could work out really hard and still eat what I wanted. Joining CrossFit has changed my view on my nutrition completely. We eat better than I ever have in my whole life, yes I still indulge and go to Cranky Als, just not as often as I once did. I wanted to be able to keep up with my kids, run, play, not feel warn down, it has helped me live a well-balanced life overall. — What makes Badger CrossFit unique? Oh the people! Again Midwesterners are so nice! Badger is our third crossfit gym. We were apart of very small gym in Portsmouth where our “big” class was 12-15 people so walking into Badger was a bit overwhelming. I remember meeting with Tyler, then the next week we started classes and he introduced us to Adam and remembered our names.
