Caffeinated CrossFit, Smyrna, GA

Francheska is one dedicated mama. She has been staying active and keeping a positive attitude throughout her pregnancy at Caffeinated CrossFit. Even before she was expecting, Francheska has been a staple of the 6:30 PM class. We love having her smiling face in class and as part of our gym outings (boat day, obstacle course races, competitions, oh my!). Congrats to our April Member of the month!

Let’s learn a little more about Fran:

Occupation: Oncology Data Analyst

How long have you been at Caffeinated CrossFit? 1 year and 4 months

What do you enjoy doing outside of CrossFit? I enjoy taking my dogs to different trails and spend time with family and friends

What is your biggest achievement so far? Every time I hit a PR is a big achievement for me but one that I can say is the biggest is finally doing handstand push-ups. Also, representing Caffeinated on my first Crossfit competition.  

What are your future goals? Try to stay healthy and fit during all my pregnancy with Crossfit  and come back after to get fit again :) 

Any advice for anyone just starting their CrossFit journey? Don’t be afraid to try. Is not about always lifting heavy stuff. Is a variety of intensity movements that with time you will see results even if you think you are dying or sore every time, that means you are working hard. Crossfit is a lifestyle and the community always encourage you to be great. 

Favorite Cheat Meal: Everything with chocolate and carrot cake

CrossFit Secret: Don’t get frustrated, be patient, work extra and you will get there. 

On Rest Days: Now that I’m pregnant I have to rest but before I’ll go run or play tennis :)

What you can't live without: My family, my dogs and the beach (I miss the beach so much) 

Who is your box buddy? My 6:30pm crew

Coach Jess says, “Francheska is an incredible athlete! She always pushes herself and is willing to put in the extra effort to reach her goals. On top of that, she is one of the members that you know will be the first to walk up and introduce herself to a new member, or encourage someone to join her for some time on the assault bike. ¡Te amo, Fran! “

Coach Mary comments, “We love having Francheska as part of the Caffeinated family! She always has a smile on her face and is always ready to work hard toward her goals! She encourages those around her and keeps a positive attitude!”
