Athlete of the Month, July 2017


Monique Goodman, 26, Nursing Assistant and Student, Saginaw

When did you start at Crossfit Reviver: 04/12/2016

What is your athletic background: I usually workout on my own, go for a light run.

What is your favorite and least favorite WOD / movement: My favorite movement is the Back Squat because I feel like I can really handle the weight. My least favorite..its hard to choose! I would say the Boat Pose because I can never stay still, and the BIKE!!

What is your greatest accomplishment? Personal, professional and fitness related: My greatest accomplishment is getting into nursing school, and now preparing to graduate in December. On the fitness side it would be committing to Reviver, and actually getting up to come.

Has CFR made you better? If yes, how so: CFR has definitely made me better. I have learned so much about myself over this last year. I believe the most valuable way CFR has helped me is reminding me to focus on staying in my own lane. For me it became not only a rule for working out but in other areas of my life as well.

What are your hobbies: I love to read sad love stories, write, and YouTube DIY projects that I’ll never start.

What are your Top 5 favorite movies: The Prince of Egypt, Love and Basketball, The Longest Ride, Mulan, & Just Wright.

What is one thing we don’t know about you: I have a blog. It’s an inspirational blog.

What are your goals in life? Personal, professional and fitness related: My personal goal is to be an amazing wife, mother and nurse one day :). My professional goal is to be great at what I do, and not to become too familiar. My fitness related goal would be to become stronger. I would love to do strict pull ups.
