We sat down with Yonshalae: an outdoors-woman at heart who will talk to *literally* anyone and likes to eat some weird food combos.

Preferred class time: I’m typically at the 6:30 PM class, but sometimes you’ll see me at 7:00 AM.
What the heck do you do outside of this place?
I’m a Student Affairs Professional at Saint Louis University. I enjoy playing with my dog, being in nature (camping and hiking), and I especially enjoy cooking new dishes and vibin’ out to some Soul R&B music.
What’s something not everyone knows about you?
I played cello for 9 years and I have 6 tattoos.
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I love dipping lay potato chips in cinnamon applesauce.
What’s a goal you’re working toward?
Going to bed a decent hour!
What’s your favorite workout?
Wall balls. I feel like a BOSS after about 30 of them! LOL.
What’s the hardest fitness-related thing that you’re always working on?
I’m working on pull-ups. Hopefully one day I can do a pull-up without a band!
Why do you like Crossfit?
CrossFit transformed the way that I live and think about wellness. It has been a physical, spiritual, and emotional transformation. I’m thankful that I started CrossFit because it increased my fitness, reduced my stress, improved my quality of life.
What’s your favorite part about Blues City (What? We had to ask!)?
I just feel extremely blessed to be part of the BCA community!
