My name is Kat Henslee, I am 32 years old, and I have two awesome little boys. I was raised in Orange, Texas where I attended Little Cypress-Mauriceville. I was always very active, playing soccer, competition dance team, drill team, and being the mascot.
As an adult, I have been a member of every globo-gym and taken every Zumba class in the area, but never stuck with anything because it was boring or just didn’t challenge me. Several years ago I dropped in at another CrossFit gym and loved it, but it just didn’t work with my schedule and life at the time.
Two years ago, I started at CrossFit Lumberton where I attended the first two free weeks of the year. I didn’t know anyone and was very intimated. After the first week, I was hooked and felt totally comfortable. The coaches are amazing and guide you through all the movements.
One of my favorite things about CrossFit, is that everything is scalable. There are movements that I’m unable to do, but can modify them to my ability.
Not only has CrossFit improved my health, but it has brought a lot of amazing people in my life. I have to shout out to my 4:30 class that holds me accountable, pushes me, and has become life long friends.
