Meet Alex Creasor…
Alex got talked into attending one of our Saturday workouts by the one and only Coach Stephanie. Comes to find out, they’re neighbors! Once Alex dropped into a few classes, she was hooked. She quickly picked up on all of the movements and has been non-stop growing ever since. Having Alex in class is a true pleasure based on her coach-ability, attitude and overall personality. We enjoy having Alex as a part of the 926 family. Be sure to give her a high five when you see her!
As part of being Athlete of the Month, we asked Alex a few questions to get to know her a little more, below are her answers:

I was born and raised in Toledo, Ohio. I moved to Chicago, IL when I was 13. I went to college at Eastern Illinois University and moved to Charlotte with my Husband Garrett immediately after graduating.
2. What do you do for a living?
I work for Aventus Investment Advisors doing client service and marketing. I am currently studying to get my CFP (Certified Financial Planner) designation.
3. Favorite hobbies?
My hobbies are my dogs, crossfit, cooking, and playing on Lake Norman.
4. Athletic Background?
I actually do not have much of an athletic background. I used to get made fun of because of how uncoordinated I was. I did gymnastic when I was young and danced for a year in high school. Other than that, I was not very athletic.
5. Why you chose CrossFit 926? .
Stephanie is my neighbor and she invited Carissa and I to come check it out. After 3 classes we were hooked. I have been going for almost a year now.

8. What advice would you give to a new comer?
The movements may feel awkward at first, but practice makes perfect. Fight through the soreness and stick with it. It gets better and soon you’ll be a pro and will be in the best shape of your life!
