Name: Renee Womber
Do you have a nickname?
How young are you? 46
Tell us about the day you walked in to CrossFit Inland Valley:
I was very nervous when I first walked into CrossFit I.V.. I contemplated CrossFit for almost a year before I finally scheduled an initial workout. After Coach Charles ran myself and my husband through the initial workout I knew X-Fit was going to challenge me.
What’s your athletic/fitness background?
I have always stayed active with running and lifting weights but I was bored with my gym routine. CrossFit made me come out of my comfort zone with rowing, rope climbs, wall push-ups and the lifts; all exercises that challenge me.
What do you like about CrossFit Inland Valley?
CrossFit Inland Valley has a friendly, inviting atmosphere with coaches that are knowledgeable and motivating.
How did you know you were hooked?
I can't remember my first WOD but after that first class I knew I was hooked!
What is your favorite WOD?
My favorite WOD is one that leaves me depleted of all energy (Thanksgiving workout).
What is your most feared WOD?
Most feared WOD is one that looks easy on the board.
What is your most noted CrossFit accomplishment to date?
I completed 10 strict pull-ups, huge for me.
What is the best advice you have received in regards to CrossFit and what advice would you give to someone who is just starting?
Get the technique down first, then worry about weight and/or speed.
What is in your gym bag?
My weight belt, towel, trail mix and fruit snacks.
What kind of music do you like to listen to while getting a WOD done?
I like rock, metal, and hip hop anything loud.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
All my meals are cheat meals, still working on that part.
What motivates you?
My X-Fit family motivates me, which I'm excited to say includes my husband and kids!!!
And finally, please share something about you that no one knows:
I used to be very flexible, I lost that flexibility in part due to injuries, my goal is to get that flexibility back.
Just like Renee mentioned above she did bring her entire Family to WOD with her. It's amazing to see this beautiful Family working out together.
Renee, you are getting stronger and improving every single day, all your effort is paying off, we can see that. Keep it up and thank you for being part of OUR CrossFit Inland Valley Family!
