This month, get to know Teri! CrossFit has improved Teri's life dramatically. It is very clear how much she loves everything about CrossFit.
Teri arrived in Hanoi in August 2018, but was in touch with us long before that. As soon as she knew she was moving to Vietnam, she immediately contacted us - the only CrossFit box in the city. She wanted to make sure she found a place to live close by, and she wanted to get started with her membership as soon as she arrived in the city. The summer heat and humidity was no match for her Florida roots.
Teri very quickly became an integral part of the community. She sticks to a consistent training schedule, shows up for all community events, and makes sure to check in with members and coaches regularly. We have seen Teri's confidence grow over these last few years; in her CrossFit abilities and herself. Sadly, she leaves us this June for a new adventure - make sure you hit a WOD with Teri before June!
Here is what CFTH means to Teri...
CFTH gives me my mental health as well as my physical health. I don't know what I would do without the sweat, focus, challenge, and camaraderie of CFTH. All of the members I've worked out with---- past, temporary and present, have supported me....just by being there with me. Crossfit has changed my mind, spirit, and body for the better. I feel STRONG in every way because of it. I never felt that until Crossfit.
How long have you been doing CrossFit/how long at CFTH?
I've been at Crossfit Tay Ho for 1 1/2 years and I've been doing CrossFit for 3 1/2 years.
Favorite movement/WOD and why?
My favorite movement is everything cardio --- but I love deadlifts and front squats best. I also love flipping tires and hope our new space will allow this!
Something positive Crossfit has taught you and any advice for someone just starting?
CrossFit has taught me confidence, focus, trust and discipline. My advice for a beginner is to STICK WITH IT and DO YOUR BEST. You will surprise yourself at what you can do and at the power given to you by the people working out with you. There is nothing like it. It will change your life.
Favorite thing to do in Hanoi (outside of Crossfit)?
If you are new to Hanoi --- get to CrossFit Tay Ho NOW! It's what I did --- you will feel at home if you have been doing CrossFit already, and you will make friends and connections right away with people who have a common spirit. Everyone here will understand you immediately ---- even if you don't speak the same language, there is a bond
