Member Spotlight: Becca Matimba

Becca Matimba makes class time A Time anytime she’s in it, and we wouldn’t want it any other way. When she’s not peeling into the handicapped spot (with a sticker that expired over a year ago) or dancing her way through a metcon, you can find her on Instagram telling 60-frame stories. 

Q: Why did you start CrossFit?

A: Well Coach Mckenz forced me and a couple of friends to attend Wodder to Wine against our will 4 years ago and I just never left.

Q: What is your favorite and least favorite thing about CrossFit? 

A: Favorite part is Sadie’s (formerly Russell’s… RIP) playlist, seeing Becky yell at us in class and of course DEADLIFTS. Least favorite part by a landslide is a weightlifting benchmark PLUS a metcon.

Q: What have you learned about yourself since starting? 

A: How to work smarter, not harder. Just kidding… honestly I’ve learned how much I use functional fitness in my day to day life and that I can run longer than I believe!

Q: What has your favorite Austin memory been since moving here? 

A: ACL and SXSW 2016-2019!

Q: What is your favorite trip you’ve taken and why? 

A: Honestly, my favorite trip is always the next one. But my dream trip is Greece, so once I go there that’ll be my favorite trip.

If you see her in class, introduce yourself and expect a few belly laughs cause she’s full of ‘em. We love you Bex! Never change (except stop parking in the freaking handicapped spot).

Mckenzie Souther

McKenzie is a North Carolina transplant (go Heels) who’s been coaching and attending Renew since 2016. Her favorite benchmark workout is Isabel, ‘cause quick power snatches are her jam. But as a former gymnast, she’ll also settle for any workout that requires her to be upside down. When she’s not coaching or working out, she just wants to be where her friends are -- preferably somewhere on the greenbelt with lots and lots of dogs!
