I'm Maren Conolly and I compete because it's just who I am. I have always been a competitive person. I want to be the best I can be. I have been doing crossfit since I was 15 years old and it has really helped me learn about my body and defy any preconceived notions I had about my own limitations. There is always something to work on in crossfit. It's not just a check list. For example, ok I can do hand stand push ups now what's next? You continually work on the same movements but in different variations. So deficit hand stand push ups, strict hand stand push ups, free standing hand stand push ups, etc. It's amazing to me to see what I am capable of. I have also learned a lot about nutrition while on my journey through crossfit and it has really helped me decide what career path to take. I am pursuing a career in physical education and exercise science. I want to be a high school PE teacher so I can help young athletes realize early on how to reach their full potential. Especially young women. I want to make sure they know that strong is beautiful and that loving their bodies is more important than they realize.
