February Member Feature: Meet Becca

Our February featured member is the fabulous Becca! 

Becca has been rocking the 6am class with Portland Outdoor Fitness since July 2017. We are incredibly thankful for her positive, cheery energy and commitment to great athleticism. Becca has a way of making even the gloomiest, rainy days or toughest workouts, seem bright and fun. 

Because you can only get to know someone so well while doing burpees, I asked Becca a few questions about her life off the court!

Bonus fun fact: February is Becca's birth month. So let's throw some extra high-fives and birthday burpees her way.

Let's meet Becca! 

Tell us a little bit about yourself! 

HIIII! I am Becca, I'm 26 years old and I work at the University of Portland as a program coordinator for orientation, families weekend, and clubs and organizations. I really enjoy my job because I get to interact with faculty and staff but also and more importantly, I get to empower student through different forms of engagement on campus. I have fallen in love with group exercise, so much so that besides working out with Portland Outdoor Fitness, I became a certified spin instructor.

What did you do for exercise or a fitness routine before starting with Portland Outdoor Fitness?

Before POF, I would predominately run as my main form of exercise. Occasionally, I would work out on my own in the gym.

What gets you out of bed bright and early to get to the courts?

I appreciate someone else does all the planning for me, all I have to do is get out of bed. It is always a small group so I feel like I am getting personal training. In going to POF, I feel like a stronger runner.

What's your favorite workout style

Stations, circuits, and EMOMs

What's your favorite movement? 

Running, squats, thrusters!

What advice would you offer someone just starting out with Portland Outdoor Fitness?

Acknowledge your starting fitness level and build from there. You're only competing to make yourself a stronger person.

What's something people may not know about you?

I can wiggle my ears!

Most important question... dark chocolate, milk chocolate or no chocolate?!

Dark chocolate!
