ATHLETE IN PROFILE
 

NAME: Jen Dickenson

JOB: Project Coordinator

FAVORITE MUSIC TYPE / GROUPThe Avett Brothers

CHILDREN / PETS ?: We have a three-year daughter (Zuzu) and two dogs (Mika and Zoey) - but most days, it feels more like we have three toddlers. ;)

FAVORITE VACATION SPOT: Montana

HOBBIES: Living room dance parties, going to the playground, and reading the same book five times in a row. :) When I’m not playing with Zuzu, I enjoy doing CrossFit, cooking, eating, yoga, hiking, reading, and writing. 

HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE CROSSFIT AND WHAT MADE YOU TRY IT OUT ? I tried CrossFit for the first time in 2013, shortly after Seth started. The WOD was rowing and burpees. I couldn’t lift my arms above 90-degrees for days afterwards and didn’t go back. :) Then...after listening to Seth talk about it pretty much constantly for the next year, I signed up for Bootcamp and a Paleo Challenge in January 2014, participated in my first Open a couple months later, and was officially hooked. 

WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT CROSSFIT AT FIRST? I wish I would’ve done this sooner.

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT CROSSFIT AND HOW IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE: I love the variety, the challenge, and the community. The workouts are hard, but the process is simple: show up, put forth your best effort (alongside an incredibly supportive and hard-working group of people), and get better every day.

LEAST FAVORITE WORKOUT OR MOVEMENT: Pull-ups

HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE CROSSFIT AND WHAT MADE YOU TRY IT OUT ?  Circa 2013 I was out of shape and looking to lose a few lbs.  I ended up finding a place with great friends, lifestyle and somewhere I can push myself. 

WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT CROSSFIT AT FIRST? This shit is Hard ‘AF’

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT CROSSFIT AND HOW IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE: I find the thing I like the most is it gives me an outlet to get better at something every time I walk through that door. I am also fairly competitive and it allows me to scratch that itch every once and a while(or every time I work out).

LEAST FAVORITE WORKOUT OR MOVEMENT: lighter thrusters and any workout with them in it
