Tell us a little about yourself and family- Hobbies, interests, where you grew up, occupation, etc.
Hi. My name is Jorja Peyton and I am in the Teen Athletes class (JV). I am 10 and live with my mom, Grandfather, dad, my dog Hollie, and my 3 goats--Penelope, Cassieopia, and Winnie White Butt. Some of my interests are books and learning about other places. My hobbies are swimming (I swim for the Hillsboro Heat swim team), volleyball (I like playing volleyball just for fun), and I also really like playing Lacrosse. And of course Crossfit. I also enjoy traveling to other states and countries.
How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join? How long have you been with BCF?
I heard about Cross Fit at the old location. My first class was with Ally for the gymnastics class, and they let me in even though I was 8 years old! I wanted to join because it seemed like a fun thing to challenge myself. Also, I had previously done gymnastics when I was younger.
What are your goals? Personal, professional, and athletic?
What motivates me is that extra challenge at the end of the day. Also, it makes me a stronger swimmer and athlete. I am so glad I have such good coaches.
My goals are to always improve in the way I exercise.
My second goal would be to always do my best in school, Cross Fit, and at swim practice.
My last goal would be to lift heavier and heavier weight as I improve my movements.
What is your proudest CrossFit moment?
My proudest Cross Fit moment was at the JV class. We were doing 3 burpee 3 kettlebell squats with a push over your head. You would add three each time. I got to 27 reps of the burpees and the kettlebell squats. We had one minute to complete the 6 total reps.
What is one tip you would give to someone who has never done CrossFit before?
One tip I would give to new people who are joining Cross Fit is that you will sometimes improve and other times you will not. And if you don't, you just have to remember that there will be tomorrow to do it, Or whenever your next class is.
What is the biggest impact CrossFit has made in your life?
The biggest impact CrossFit has made in my life is probably making me stronger and more fit. I definitely couldn't do this a year ago.
