Jennifer Emery

1.) Congratulations! Jennifer You are *the* Member of the Month.
If we could play a victory song for this announcement, what would you choose??

Outkast-Bombs over Baghdad It is, by far, my favorite kick some a$$ workout song.

2.) You are an OG CrossFit athlete. When did you first start CrossFit,
and tell us what that first class/experience was like.

I had been working out with a personal trainer a few times a week at one of the
big gyms for about three years. My trainer knew a guy who had just opened a CF gym
in Athens and he urged me to try it out. I was excited because I thought I was in pretty
good shape (haha) and would be able to go in for a workout and really do well. I went in,
kinda puffed up, and was told my first workout was Cindy. I could do some pull-ups &
push-ups (mind you, never had I done an actual chest to deck push up,) so I thought this
would be a piece of cake. Well…I got FOUR ROUNDS. Four. I left with my tail between my
legs and a little broken, but I couldn’t wait to do it again. My next wod was Fran;
I am sure you can imagine how that went.

3.) What does a day in the life of Lady Jennifer of House Emery look
like outside of being a rockstar mom and CrossFitter?

Outside of mommyhood and the gym, I work as a Real Estate Appraiser. I have had
my own business since 2005 and moved it to Atlanta when I married Mark. I spend
part of the day looking at houses around Atlanta and part of the day doing computer
work. I get to work from home and hang out with The Goose, our Great Dane, Roxmonster,
our Chihuahua, and be available when the kiddos need me.

4.) Top 3 Favorite Foods. 3-2-1 Go.

Don’t judge me:
1. Tacos (or anything in a flour tortilla)
2. All things potato
3. Macaroni and cheese

5.) What’s one of your favorite memories at BTB?

On way more than one occasion, one of our amazing BTB guys has stepped up and helped
to take care of a fussy Scout so I could continue to do a workout. Those moments are
special and make me so grateful to be a part of our BTB gym family.

6.) Tell us an insider secret about yourself that nobody here knows.
Not even Mark. Make it spicy.

I have a crush on Eric Erickson!!! 🙂

7.) As we all know CrossFit can be very intimidating or scary.
As a strong female CrossFit athlete, what is one piece of advice you would
give to another women that is looking to try CrossFit out?

First and foremost, I feel that CrossFit women are especially friendly to other women.
I personally love to see a new girl come in and watch as she progresses and gets stronger
and more confident. I would remind a new woman that the gym is filled with all types of
people with varying abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Even those who look the strongest
and most intimidating have things that they can improve on and those
are the things that bond all of us together.
