My first elite client - MCCF's Carey F.

We opened the new box about a year ago - right about then is when I saw Carey for the first time in a long time. I'd known her from the past but we were more acquaintences than anything else so we really didn't stay in touch. I think we were at a Poison concert or something...Anyway - She noticed I had lost a bit of weight and asked how I did it and when I told her, she was hooked. (She'd already heard of CF but hadn't tried it yet)

Fast forward about 1 year and during today's CrossFit Total WOD, Carey ended up with a total of 520 (537 is elite @114 so I'm jumping the gun a bit)at a bodyweight of roughly 112. (She's about 5 feet tall)

Backsquat - 185
SP - 90
Deadlift - 245

She also sports a 20+ round 'Cindy' and a sub 5 min 95# Grace.

I would like to take the credit but unfortunately I can't. She busts her butt and eats well. She had always worked out as far as I know but never realized her full potential until now.

During the spring, Carey was toying with the idea of going to the regionals but decided against it. When the WOD's came out I think she was a bit relieved because she wouldn't have been able to do the first workout as RX'd which, right or wrong, is a big deal for her. At the time, Her 1RM Deadlift was roughly 185. Look at her now!

So...Although I can't officially call her elite just yet, I'm pretty sure her next total will solidify her place as MCCF's first elite athlete...

We're all proud of you Carey - Keep it up!

I've attached a few pics - Not sure if she'll chime in here or not but I just wanted to let people know.

Oh yeah...Carey is probably the fittest chick I've seen. We call her Mighty Mouse....for good reason.
