December Member Spotlight – Lori Wick

What is your “daytime” job”? 
Bookkeeper at AW Smith LLC in Rockford MN.

How did you get started at EffectUs Athletics and what did you do before? 
My younger son had started cross fit and encouraged me to try it.  I said no way I’m too old!  But he also mentioned that all the workouts can be scaled.  I saw what a good community crossfit was for him and I thought that would be good for me as well.  I called and talked to Jackie and she had me come in for the base workout and I started soon after that.  No regrets ever!!  Before crossfit I worked out at a local SnapFitness.

How long have you been CrossFitting?
I started in January of 2015 so 2021 will be my sixth year!  (Is my math correct on this?)

Whats your favorite movie? 
Lord of The Rings

What is one nickname you have?
My real name is Loris so I guess Lori is a nickname.

Which celebrity/historical figure would you want to workout with?
