Meet Heather Hodges

Heather and her family moved here in May from Tulsa, OK. She most recently was featured as one of the 2009 Crossfit Central Success Stories!

How were you introduced to Crossfit?

My husband starting CrossFitting first and I thought he was absolutely nuts for putting his body through those grueling workouts. When he started losing a lot of weight and getting in serious shape I starting taking notice and tried it. I was hooked from my first workout!

Favorite WOD/lift:
Annie/Split Jerk

Favorite Zone/Paleo Meal:

Breakfast: 3 eggs, 1/3 c. Irish Oatmeal w/ 1/2 c. blueberries, 1 large tomato, 1/4 avocado

Favorite cheat meal:
Steak (the whole thing!) sweet potato with butter, salad, bread, and a margarita!

I have always wanted to vacation in Bora Bora (with a new Crossfit body, of course!)

1 word people use to describe me: encouraging

Outside of the gym I like to hang with my 3 favorite guys: Wade, Caleb, and Elijah

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me: I am an artist, and I paint in oils

Favorite place to eat in Austin:Shady Grove

Song that gets me pumped up for a workout: Anything by Bon Jovi, Creed, or U2

Proudest accomplishment:Being a mom

Best advice anyone has ever given you: Love the Lord with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I’m not sure where I will be living, but I know that I want to be living life on my terms with more time for my family, friends and church. I will have been married for nearly 25 years by then and have kids entering college. Wow, where did the time go!

Heather is taking North Austin by storm! She recently started a Relentless Bootcamp in Round Rock as well as a Master's Class at our Burnet Rd. facility. In addition, Heather is the lead Crossfit Kids coach and heads up 2 kids' classes at the gym and personal trains out of her garage! Whew!
