March Purgee(s!) of the Month!
This month it's a double whammy for the Purgee of the Month! We're giving a shout out to the dynamic duo of Joaquin and Jenn Felipe (or Jua-enn, as we like to call them). These guys are awesome. Always willing to jump in and try anything, including a grueling hike on New Years Day, volunteering to compete at WOD on the Loop, and throwing down TWICE during the Thursday Throwdowns for the Open (including a PR for Jenn on 18.2a)! These guys are awesome and badass. We're so lucky to have them as Purgees!
Where are you from? What brought you to Tucson?
Jennifer: South Florida... My husband's career
Joaquin: Raised in South Florida. Moved to Tucson because of a job offer and to further my career.
How long have you been a CrossFitter, and why did you start?
Jennifer: I have been CrossFitting for a little over 3 years. I started cause I wanted to begin a healthier lifestyle and be happier with my appearance!
Joaquin: Have been into Crossfit for almost 4 years. I started to become stronger in lifts and to compete in Crossfit comps.
Which movement is your favorite?
Jennifer: Power cleans and box jumps
How have you improved the most?
Jennifer: I have improved the most by working a pace that it best for me. My breathing played a big part of that and I have learned to control my breathing during my workouts!
Joaquin: Better endurance during workouts and overall healthier lifestyle.
Which MarioKart character would you be?
What do you love about being at CrossFit Purgatory?
Jennifer: I love the coaching, the comradery, the motivation, and the friends I've made since I first started here! you all are awesome!!
Joaquin: The box is full of kickass Purgees (always motivating and friendly). Feels like another home.
What keeps you motivated?
Jennifer: Looking back at where I started from. When I think about that, it keeps me going! I only want to continue to improve
Joaquin: To be an all around better human being, father and husband. Oh and the dream of relaxing on a beach somewhere.
If I'm not at the box, you can probably find me...
Jennifer: at home with my family, eating food or getting ice cream 😂
Joaquin: Looking for new craft beers. Hahaa. Work, home, bar(in that order).
One interesting thing about yourself not related to CrossFit:
Jennifer: I have a big heart and I always try to help someone out even if they don't deserve it!
Joaquin: N/A!! Hahaa (not even true :) - ed.)
