November’s Athlete Spotlight is Becca Kwiatkowski

Welcome to our Athlete Spotlight! Each month we highlight a dedicated member of our gym so you can get to know them a little better!

November’s Athlete Spotlight is Becca Kwiatkowski!

If you were stranded on an island and could only bring three things, what would you bring?

I would bring an airplane, an airplane pilot, and jet fuel…and I would leave that little vaca spot before I got sunburn.

What is the last thing you searched for on Google?

The last thing I searched for on google was “last minute Halloween costumes” … Google’s idea of “last minute” is entirely different than mine. I really mean last minute.. Google thinks last minute means you still have a day to gather props and whatnot for your costume…

What is your favorite childhood movie?

Over the Top.

What has been the best part about competing in CrossFit competitions?

The adrenaline rush.  It’s amazing what adrenaline will do for your PR :)… and working with someone who is working just as hard for you, as you are for them.  When in a competition, especially with that awesome partner, (ahem .. Jess) I want nothing more than to give it my all. That drive added to a big adrenaline rush pushes me to a different level. I think of nothing but to, go hard, and finish strong. It’s hard to keep that state of mind on just an average day. 1Corinthians 9:24-27 is a verse that helps me to keep things in perspective, and encourages me always “give it my all”.

What inspired you to walk through our doors for the first time?

I really just wanted a workout that was different and kept me interested. The regular gym/workouts never cut it for me. Kate encouraged me to join and the rest is history! I really never expected for this gym to become such a huge part of my life. I love the friends I have made at this gym, the strengths and confidence I have gained, and the challenges that I continue to face every day simply help to shape my character. Thank you NRCF and all of the coaches for being such an amazing team!

Becca, thank you so much for being such an awesome member! We love having you around our gym. Your smile, laugh, and hard work are contagious! Our gym is a better place because you’re a part of it!
