Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.


I grew up in Bountiful, UT. I figured out words and writing were my thing when I was 5. I started working at 11 ( first job was in a snow cone shack…not sure how that was legal.) I started waking up at age 12 to workout before I went to school cause I felt better and could think better. My favorite thing was step and dancing. In college, I studied photojournalism. I met my husband, Kent, and married his cute butt at 19. We have 4 kids. I get to stay home with them. Additionally, I teach Yoga (trapeze is my favorite) and spin. I also semi-homeschool my kids. I teach at the community school they attend 3 days per week; math to the 3rd graders, history to the intermediate class. I started a publishing company this year to create and sell my line of toddler board books about Historical Figures who helped shape our world. As part of that, I blog (www.truthette.com) which I really enjoy. I’m also working on finishing up my 2nd screenplay. I just love words and people. I also love to learn. 


How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?


Before finding BCF, I worked out in my living room doing videos (The Firm, anybody anybody? P90X? Insanity? No? Just Me? Ok) I found the BCF Groupon. Tried 3 places. Liked the vibe of BCF.



What is your favorite movement? Non-favorite movement?


Favorite movement :Honestly, I like all the things. If I had to pick, I like the body movements (especially Pull ups and push-ups cause for the first time in my life, I can do them. I love me some OHS and Clean and jerks too. Snatching is a foreign language that my body forgets to speak. 

Least favorite: Dear heavens above, can we never do a thruster or cluster ever again? OR D-Balls!  Puh-lease!
Also when I need to climb a rope, I tend to just stare at it and hope that counts soooo.....

What is your proudest CF moment?


Geez... so many. Getting my first PULL-Up. I’ve always wanted to do that. Or Double Undering in a WOD. Or showing up after I threw the barbell. Or squatting to a healthy depth, or my first RX WOD. Or watching my 6 am tribe conquer something difficult. So so many. Probably way more losses than wins but I only remember the wins.


What is 1 thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?


SURPRISE: I’m afraid of heights. Other than that I don’t discuss my fears. Gives them too much power. 

What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?



“Linda” by 12/22/19. 1 Ring MU. Publish 3 more of my books in 2019. See the Northern Lights. Live in Switzerland for a while. Take each of my kids on a humanitarian mission when they turn 16. Lovingly hand each of my beautiful kids a box of their stuff when they turn 18 and help them move out, go forth and conquer.


What is your biggest motivation in life?


I really don’t know why the desire to fitness burns so bright in me. Wish I did. I just feel better after. I’m happier. Maybe addicted to the happy endorphins. It makes me the better version of myself.


Biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?


1. I used to workout to eat cause I LOVE food, like lots. Now, I eat so I can Workout. CrossFit healed that relationship for me (though I still have hard food days when I want to eat all the things).

2. It made me stronger. For me there is a lot of peace in being “strong enough”. I appreciate peace. Also, my tribe. My BCF Fitfam is such a part of my heart. They hold up space for me. Space to be triumphant or defeated, goofy and stupid. Holding up “space” might not sound like a heavy lift, but it is and makes my tribe the strongest people I know.

December's Hot Topic



What does it mean to “fuel your body” and why is it so important? For many of us, we don’t take into consideration what food actually does to us on the inside, and we typically don’t think of all the negatives attached to an unhealthy diet.

Links Between Disease, Illness & Ailments and Nutrition


Many diseases can actually be prevented (and sometimes reversed) by eating healthier and on a consistent basis. Studies have shown a proper diet can even slow down the rate at which cancer cells grow!

Acne, eczema, bloating, inflammation, exhaustion, headaches, unhealthy blood sugar levels, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, lack of focus, heart disease, obesity, etc. There are SO many symptoms of poor nutrition. And not only this, but when you step foot into the gym, everything you ate is literally what is fueling your body to perform either at its best or subpar. Our bodies were designed to run on healthy, natural food. The problem starts when we start feeding our stomachs processed, sugar-filled foods, and then repeat it day after day. These foods spark an immediate response in your body, not a sustained, healthy, supportive response.

Whether you have a major health issue that you’d like to tackle, if you want shed a few pounds, or maybe you just want to feel better, nutrition will play a big roll. The 7th Annual BCF CrossFit New Year's Challenge will help get those healthy nutrition habits started, so grab a partner and get signed up . It’s all about creating better daily habits and creating awareness of what we’re feeding ourselves.

More info can be found on our website at: http://www.bcfcrossfit.com/p/2016-new-years-challenge.html

“Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat.”

December Athlete of the Month- Brendan Duyck


 Tell us a little about yourself and family – hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.

I have been married to my beautiful wife Briann for 9 years and we have two very busy boys, Case and Isaac. I started working summers on my farm in Forest Grove when I was 8 years old and have been a farmer ever since. Being a farmer is a job, a hobby and an interest as it takes most of my time. My other interests are truck pulling and adding to my gun collection. CrossFit is quickly becoming my top interest outside of farming though and I hope for it to be a hobby for me and my family for many years to come.


How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join? How long have you been with BCF?

I have had many friends and family members that do or have done CrossFit but really didn’t decide to try it until Andrew and Rachel Downey told me to give it a shot. I was getting so heavy and out of shape that I knew I had to do something. December 9th will be my one year anniversary at BCF and I can’t imagine not having CrossFit in my life now.




What are you goals? Personal, professional and athletic?

My life’s goal has and always will be to own and operate my family farm to the best of my ability. I want it to be the place I raise my sons and where I grow old with my wife. As far as BCF goes, I’m competitive so mainly I just want to make it up on the whiteboards on the wall (probably in deadlift).

What is your favorite movement? Least favorite movement?

Deadlift is my favorite, especially sumo deadlift because I can lift so much. Running use to be my least favorite, but now that I have lost quite a bit of weight, running isn’t so bad. BUT BURPEE’S ARE! I don’t think you can lose enough weight to make burpee’s fun.

What is one thing that people would be surprised to find out about you?

I have 37 first cousins and now that most of them are married and have/having kids, family Christmas’s are huge!!

What is your biggest motivation in life?

I want to be the best farmer, father and husband I can. BCF keeps me in the shape I need to be to work long hours and still come home with enough energy for my wife and kids. Also, the stress relief that CrossFit provides makes me a better person to be around.


Everyone donated their time when they could in whatever capacity they could to help get The Farm off the ground, but had it not been for Brendan carving out time during one of his busiest seasons sometimes super early in the AM sometimes at dusk I am not sure we would have gotten this beast off the ground! Between his multiple skill sets and equipment capacity he bailed the community out of close calls time after time during a truly chaotic six weeks! Thank you Brendan for helping us keep this ship upright during a truly crazy time!
