Give it up for Sarah Schnieder! She has been a consistent presence in the early morning class for the last year. Sarah shows up every morning with a smile on her face ready to tackle the workout.
Sarah has shown amazing amounts of patience and positivity coming back from her knee injury. Rehab is never simple and it’s easy to lose motivation when injured, but Sarah has really been committed to her recovery. She has turned up to the 5am classes ready to try something new and always asks for scaling opportunities to work around the injury. Great to see her now gaining confidence in the knee and jumping and even sometimes running. She’s been a role model in how she’s dealt with it.
Sarah will be leaving Crossfit Tay Ho (and Hanoi) in June 2020, we will be cherishing the last few months we have with her! Read on to find out what CFTH means to Sarah and some other interesting tidbits about her!
Here is what Crossfit Tay Ho means to Sarah:
“CFTH has helped me to work through knee rehab and regain strength and mobility, as well as confidence in what I can do physically. The coaches are so incredibly supportive and patient, while also holding each of us to a high standard. The community is kind and goofy, and I very much look forward to coming to the box every morning.”
How long have you been doing Crossfit/how long at CFTH?
I started at CFTH (and Crossfit) Spring 2019, so we're coming up to a year!
Favorite movement/WOD and why?
Deadlift - it's a movement I've worked on for quite some time between softball and coaching, and one that I was able to do consistently through all of my knee rehab fun. It makes me feel strong and capable.
Something positive Crossfit has taught you?
Crossfit, particularly CFTH, has helped to remind me to have patience with myself, but also to push myself. The encouraging and supportive community has become a consistently positive part of my life here in Hanoi.
How long have you been in Hanoi?
I have been here a year and a half, and I will be be taking off in June of this year.
Favorite thing to eat in Hanoi?
Anything with passionfruit in it. And fresh spring rolls.
