The CrossFit Life...Chat with Beth Gomez

Beth Gomez hits the gym probably every day, and she isn't just into being fit. She's into being CROSSFIT! She loves CrossFit and she's been active in it for two years. She recently obtained her certification level one as a trainer. She has been working out and training and just recently started teaching classes at CrossFit1108 at 205 E. Emery Street in Dalton. I talked to her recently and found out what she loves about it.

What do you love your life right now? 
CrossFit! It really has helped me. I was really depressed and Chris who owns the gym reached out to me and encouraged me to get involved in the gym as a trainer. He said I should come out and be involved in the gym and not stay home. Everyone at CrossFit 1108 encourages everyone to be their best and help you if you have a problem. I just recently started training. I love to train and share my knowledge and share personal records.

When did you receive your certification as a trainer? 
June of this year at CrossFit Mayhem in Cookeville, Tennessee at Rich Froning's gym. He has won in  CrossFit Games for four years in a row.

When do you train?
I teach a women's class on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30PM.

Explain what is CrossFit? 
Constant varying high-intensity movements. You get everything you need in that one workout. You get cardio, weight lifting, and gymnastics.

What does it teach you? 
You are as good as you wanna be. If you put the work in, you can go as far as you want to go.

Tell me three fun facts about you.
Well, for one, I like to watch a lot of documentaries. I get wild when I drink, and I love animals.

What motivates you to do CrossFit? 
I want to be healthy and be strong. I'm getting older. People have to realize as we age and if we are sedentary and not eating well, it's detrimental to your health.

Beth's motto is "Be happy". She says, "Life is too short to hold grudges. If you're not at a gym, get out and do something. Walk or take a run and eat better. Just do something."
