I was born and raised in China. I moved to Dallas 8 years ago to pursue my MBA degree.
What’s your occupation?
Marketing research analyst & account manager.
How did you hear about CrossFit Luna and why did you decide to join?
I live less than a mile from the gym.
I’ve always wanted to be stronger. I never did any weight training in my life and I had no idea how to start it. After all the reviews and research, I knew I should join this box.
What progress have you made since joining CrossFit Luna?
I got muscles.
What is your favorite exercise?
HBBS, sit ups, running, rowing, and squats.

DEFINITELY Burpees.
Snatch or Clean & Jerk?
Clean&Jerk

“ABS are BAE”
A variety of exercises that utilize your Abs.
What are some of your goals for the coming year?
Handstand push up & Pull ups
How do you see CrossFit being different than other fitness programs?
Community. When you join crossfit, you are not only joining a fitness program, but you are a part of something that shapes you to be the best you can be.
What would you tell people who are wanting to start or just started CrossFit?
You can say hi to everyone without people giving you weird looks.
How can other people relate to your story?
I was very weak and had no lifting background before I joined CrossFit. I even thought the bar was really heavy. After 4 months of walking through the door, I have a  125lbs HBBS, 85lb clean and jerk, and I know I am still improving.
Favorite Cheat Meal?
Korean fried chicken at Tto Tto Wa
What is something that others may not know about you?
 
I love to travel anywhere in search of good food and go explore for new and exciting dishes. 🙂
Thanks to CrossFit Luna and all the coaches for your tireless effort to inspire and motivate me.
