Maggie L.

Maggie demonstrates her kindness and welcoming attitude often, but especially when she partners up with newer members for partner workouts.

Even though Maggie has only been with us for just over 9 months, she has progressed at an impressive rate. She has shown us what consistency, commitment, a positive attitude, and hard work can accomplish. She demonstrates impressive mental toughness, grinding through challenging workouts and movements without giving up. We love seeing Maggie succeed and we can’t wait to see what she accomplishes next!
What do you do for a living?
I am an Adult/Geriatric Nurse Practitioner, and I see patients primarily in nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
How do you spend your free time? What are some of your hobbies?
My hubby Jacob and I love to hike, especially in the National Parks. We have 2 cats, Camy and Brie, who are always up to no good. I also enjoy playing piano.
What are some of your dreams or goals?
Professionally, I hope to be a part of changing healthcare for the elderly and advocating for quality healthcare during their later years. Personally, I have a goal to get to all of the National Parks in my lifetime!
What’s your athletic background?
I have very little athletic background. A little dance and JV track sums it up.
If you could write a workout, what would it be?
Anything with a barbell and in the structure of either Fran or DT.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
Pizza and ice cream
How often and which class do you typically attend?
I try to come 3-4 times a week. I bounce around but mostly come in the evenings and Saturday mornings.
What are some of your fitness goals?
I would love to not hate burpees and do a muscle-up and a rope climb.
What keeps you coming back?
I think I’m getting better at things and that is so much fun. I love the challenge of CrossFit and there is always something new to work on.
What are some improvements/progress you have seen while at CrossFit Osiris?
When I started I couldn’t finish a 3-minute workout without needing to rest, and now my endurance and recovery times are both improved. I am also so grateful for how CrossFit has benefited my mental health as well. I am much healthier in mind and body when I come to CrossFit consistently.
What would you say to someone on the fence about starting CrossFit?
Love yourself wherever you are at and just come. Celebrate the little victories and give it a try!
What has your experience been like at CrossFit Osiris?
Since day 1, CrossFit Osiris felt like home, which is wild for me to ever say because that has not been my story. There were days it was difficult to keep coming and struggling through workouts in the beginning, but the coaches are so supportive and able to modifying things to meet you where you are at. The most important thing I’ve learned is to just keep showing up.
