Today is the day to feature Breanna Hunt in our Member Spotlight! We all love Bre for her infectious smile and great attitude. Bre has worked very hard and has come a long way in her CrossFit journey! We are honored that she has chosen UP to be her "home". Bre is probably what people would call a "CrossFit poster child" - take a look at her accomplishments since starting CrossFit below. But don't be fooled - Bre has worked very very hard for everything she has achieved and keeps pushing for her new goals. She has become one of the strongest women at UP. Check out her interview below.
- Where are you from?
Clinton, Washington - a small town on Whidbey Island in the San Juans. Stunningly beautiful deserted beaches and forests and an amazing hippy/artsy community. Love my hometown!
- What do you do for a living?
Server/Bartender at La Posta for now…. but am on my last semester at SJSU! Will graduate in the spring with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Media. Then the world is my oyster!
- What do you like to listen to when you workout?
For CrossFit 80’s power rock or Seattle Grunge. When I run I like more mellow music; Xavier Rudd, Eddie Vedder, The White Buffalo and Van Morrison make frequent appearances on my running mixes.
- Weirdest or most surprising fact about yourself.
I am the undefeated champion on Lips, American Idol, and Karaoke Revolution for Xbox. In the privacy of my own home and around close friends I am quite the sensation! And I LOVE running and swimming in the ran!
- How long have you been doing CrossFit?
One year and three months!
- What are some things you have accomplished since starting CrossFit?
This list is going to be long…..
A lunge (yeah couldn't do those a year ago)
4+ minutes off my mile time!
Pushing ANY amount of weigh overhead.
Gaining muscle definition :-)
Touching my toes!
Eating the correct macros (almost) every day.
Basically anything that we do in our daily WODs!
- Are you working on any new CrossFit goals or PRs?
T2B, finding my lats, 100 lbs over-head (so close!), 200 lbs off the ground, push-ups, pull-ups, and a 7:30 mile, run a Spartan Race! These should keep me busy for a while :-)
- Favorite cheat meal.
Homemade pies and cobbles with a good bottle of wine!
- Do you have any hobbies or other sports you’re into?
Surfing, swimming and anything water related! I am usually the first one in the water and the last one out. Am always up for a game of tennis. I initially joined CrossFit to get back into shape for two reasons, to run a Spartan race (Team UP, 2016!) and to get back into soccer… anyone know of a women’s over 30 team looking for a player this spring?
- Name something on your bucket list.
Spend an entire summer living on a sailboat exploring Desolation Sound up in Canada. No cell phones or Wi-Fi, spending everyday swimming, hiking, picking berries, reading, collecting oysters, lounging around, get back into nature and forgetting about the real world for awhile.
- Imagine you have a chance to go anywhere in the world, but it has to be with one of the following celebrities: Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, Jack White, Dave Grohl, Aretha Franklin, Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres, Britney Spears, Mike Tyson, Alicia Keys, or Oprah Winfrey. Where would you go and who would you go with?
So I am not a celebrity person, but it would definitely be something water related and with someone who is an expert in their field. If this was a surf trip, it would be Rob Machado or the Malloy bothers, they seem fun! For sailing, Wylie Blanchet, Sam Davies, or Captain Ron :-) I would take it as an opportunity to do something amazing outside my comfort zone and learn from the bests.
