Member Spotlight : the woman who can do it all, Emily Hawkinson! Not only is she a beast in ‘the box’ she’s a beast out doing life. If you don’t find her at Osiris, you’re sure to find her running ragged all over the north metro, on the soccer or lacrosse fields cheering on one of her three kids. Or teaching a combat class. Or maybe a happy hour if she’s lucky. In her day-to-day, she is a “people leader” at a global medical device company, where you often will find her going to bat for someone, thinking bigger than herself, using logic and efficiency, and how to continue to better her skills in being a dynamic leader. Whatever Emily does, she leaves it ALL on the floor. All. We love that she’s a staple of our community, bright and early. Here’s a bit more about her journey.
What are some of your goals, fitness or personal? Gosh…I’d love to become proficient with DUs and T2B. Muscle ups would be amazing! I’d also love to get some focused technique sessions on Olympic lifting. I’d like to think this ole gal still has some new PRs in her. On a personal level, I’d love to be in a place to retire relatively “early”. Minimum of 60. 55 would be even better.
List one or two improvements you have seen in your life since starting CrossFit. Jeans tight, bootie big!
How do you like to spend your free time? I’m a wife, mom to 3 (16,14 and 10 yo) and teach group fitness outside my normal day job. I know not what this “free time” is that you speak of. Just kidding! I’m actually really enjoying the spring and summer sand volleyball league I play in with several other Osiris members.
