Member Spotlight: Lindsey Payne

She’s more than purple hair, flashy slug bugs, and specs so cute you’ll wish your eyesight sucked — meet Lindsey Payne, this month’s Member Spotlight!

Q: Why did you join CrossFit Renew?

A: I joined Crossfit Renew because I needed something new, something different, something that challenged me mentally and physically. I also wanted to meet new people and make new friendships.

Q: What’s been your biggest accomplishment?

A: My biggest accomplishment was doing my first RX workout and signing up for The Open within a couple months of joining.

Q: What are you working on now?

A: I want to practice and master all the gymnastics moves. I love that crossfit not only challenges me physically but mentally as well. I feel like I constantly have new things to work hard at and master. I am a very competitive person so I challenge myself to be better every single time I step into that box.

Q: What’s your favorite CrossFit Renew memory?

A: My favorite memory was FNL. I love to cheer for people and to have people rooting for me. Camaraderie; it’s so special when you legitimately want the best for each other. I love that about this place and it’s one of the main reasons I keep coming back.

Q: What motivates you to continue training at CrossFit Renew?

A: The people are what make this gym special to me. Genuine people. People who greet me with a smile when I walk through those doors, people who challenge me to be a better me, people who hug me as I cry and say they love me, people who genuinely want to know how I’m doing, people who ask questions because they’re interested in who I am or what’s going on in my life and people who push me hard physically and then encourage me afterwards with high fives or ‘good job’ or ‘way to work’. It never fails that my day is ALWAYS better because of the people and workouts I encounter at CrossFit Renew.

Man, those are some special words. Makes our CrossFitty family hearts pitter patter. So glad you joined the crew, Linds. Now you can never leave.
