We sat down with Taylar: a handstand aficionado, chronic lip-singer, and elementary school counselor, and asked her the pressing questions so you could get to know her a little better.
Member since: December 2019
Preferred class time: You can either find me at the 5:45 am class or 5:20 pm class… 9:30 am if we’re on a break at school.
What the heck do you do outside of this place?
I am an Elementary School Counselor, I just received my Group Fitness Instructor Certification this summer, and because I have no clue what to do with myself if I’m not extremely busy, I’m also a server at a restaurant on the weekends.
Fun fact about you
I know the words to almost every song ever, I’m sure if you watch me close enough at the gym you can see me mouthing the words to every song that comes on.
What’s something not everyone knows about you?
I broke my high school’s record for diving in 2008.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
When I have free time (which is rare) I love to watch reality tv, especially 90 Day Fiance and Real Housewives of Potomac.
What’s a goal you’re working toward?
Continuing to move and get stronger. And, maybe one day making it to the compete track 🙂
What’s your favorite workout?
Anything with handstand push-ups or handstand walking is my favorite! I guess it’s the gymnast in me that enjoys being upside down!
What’s the hardest fitness-related thing that you’re always working on?
NUTRITION! I feel like nutrition and fitness go hand in hand. I’m always working on making healthier choices!
Why do you like Crossfit?
I walked into CrossFit not knowing much about it at all. Some of the workouts can look EXTREMELY intimidating but it feels so amazing when you finish a workout that you never thought you could have done. Also, I might be a little biased, but I do think BCA has the best members ever!
What’s your favorite part about Blues City (What? We had to ask!)?
When I walked into BCA in December last year, I just came in wanting to try something new. I never thought that BCA would become such a big part of my life. I absolutely LOVE being a part of BCA!
