Corinne White

1.     Tell us about yourself: I was born and raised about a ½ an hour east of Pittsburgh in North Huntingdon, PA.   I earned a few degrees from WVU and am now Program Director for a school that (tries to) help kids with social, emotional and behavioral issues.  I live in Washington with my husband and kids ~ Cameron (Baby Corn) who goes to THE Ohio State University and Carson who is a senior in high school.  

2.     How would your best friends describe you? Happy, generally late, loud (especially when laughing), fun-loving, supportive.

3.     What is one thing that people find surprising about you? People have mistaken pictures of Anna Tobias, CrossFit Games Master’s champion, for ME! Granted, the pics have been a little far way and maybe a little blurry, but still!! 

4.     How long have you been doing CrossFit? I started about 6 years ago but have been doing legit CrossFit at T2 for about 3 years.  

5.     What made you start CrossFit? A Groupon and my sister.

6.     What is your favorite thing about CrossFit? The people and the coaches.  I adore my 4 o’clock squad but I know I can come to any class and leave feeling like I just spent an hour with friends.  I also love the variety of the workouts and the fact that I never have to think about what I am going to do when I get there. Brad and the other coaches all decide for me!

7.     What is your favorite movement? BFSU, duh. Just kidding, although I always enjoy the opportunity to lie down during a WOD for a bit.  I love cleans and I really like thrusters, either with a bar or dumbbells.

8.     What is your least favorite movement? Squat snatch or OHS. Blah!

9.     What is your biggest accomplishment to date both CrossFit related and non-CrossFit related?  When I first started at T2, I showed up maybe 2-3 times a week and Brad told me that if I could do at least 4 times a week I would see more improvement.  Shocker, he was right.  So, I think my biggest accomplishment CrossFit-wise has been the cumulative effect of continuing to show up at least 4-5 (sometimes 6!) times a week and still loving it and seeing improvements regardless of how small.  My biggest non-CrossFit accomplishment is raising healthy, intelligent kids who more often than not make good choices in the world.  I am also thrilled that I have been able to impress upon my daughter the importance that Strong is Beautiful! 

10. What is your next goal? Become better/more comfortable at the movements that I dislike (see #8); pull-ups (still!), better dubs, oh, and learn the lyrics to Taki Taki (so hard!)

11. What is your favorite WOD you have done so far? I love a chipper or AMRAP with small #s of reps for just a few movements.  I feel more accomplished when I get through several rounds rather than just one round of something.  I also really like any partner or team WOD – sooo much fun! 

12. Free write: T2 is my happy place, my sanity and my comfort zone. I try to explain to people what the community is like but it really is something that needs to be experienced.  After a hard day at work, I hear some of the staff talking about getting a drink but all I can think is “I can’t wait to get to the gym.” I really can’t say if it is the workout or the people that make me feel better, but it doesn’t really matter, does it?

This week’s food: PAN SEARED MAHI MAHI OVER STICKY COCONUT “RICE” WITH MANGO SALSA  paleomg.com

I made this but had to alter the salsa a little – Paul doesn’t like peppers and I didn’t have enough avocado. I used:

Apple, celery, onion, orange, walnuts, raisins, coconut vinegar, avocado oil, seasoning. Oh and a very small amount of maple syrup. It was all very delicious.
