MOTQ: Kris DelValle
Q: When did you first hear about CrossFit and how did you get started?
I first heard about Bell City from one of our coaches about 3 years ago. She had been trying to get me to come in and give it a try for quite a while until I finally decided to give it a shot and I was immediately hooked. Fell in love with CrossFit on the first visit. Hands down the best decision I have ever made.
Q: Why did you stick with it?
I stuck with it because of the constant challenge I get every single time I am there and the results that I see myself getting which makes me want to keep going.
Q: What do you enjoy most about Bell City CrossFit?
I honestly enjoy the people the most. Don't get me wrong, the workouts are great but having the support and family feeling while you are there is so motivating. I have met so many great people and made so many new friendships which I think makes Bell City stand out.
Q: Most and least favorite lift?
My favorite lift has to be the cleans. I am getting comfortable and more confident with them. I find them to challenge me the most and I get the most out of them. My least however, is a love/late relationship with snatches. I am slowly getting better at them but I just can't seem to like them all that much.
Q. What do you train for?
I train for myself. I train to keep my body healthy, muscles strong to support my bones, and to keep myself strong.
Q: What is your greatest CrossFit success story?
I have to say the Opens were my most memorable accomplishment. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could do a wall walk (not to mention a bunch of them), get my first toes to bar, or do as well as I ended up doing. Not to mention it was so much fun! Cannot wait for next year!
Q: What do you do for work?
I am a custodian at a high school so I manage to stay pretty busy during my day.
Q: What do you do for fun with you’re not at the gym?
What do I do for fun? I really enjoy going on hikes when the weather is nice, getting together with friends (which I haven't done much with Covid). I love summer, so going to the beach whenever I can is a definite.
Q: What advice would you give to someone interested in CrossFit, but not sure it’s the right fit for them?
My best advice for someone is just to give it a shot, what do you have to lose? You will never know unless you try. I know that was my story and I took the leap and I can't be happier with my decision.
Q: Favorite breakfast meal?
My favorite breakfast meal is an avocado toast with an egg on top with a little hot sauce. It is the bomb!!!
Congratulations Kris, and thank you for sharing your story!
When you see Kris at Bell City, be sure to give her a high-five and congratulate her!!!
