October Member of the Month Tracy Haynes
Boot Camp Percussionist
We are so happy to have Tracy Haynes in our Fort Miami family. Tracy has been married to her husband Brian for 17 years, and they have 2 boys, Vinny (14) and Duncan (11). She initially started her journey in our Boot Camp class and has not looked back since. She's lost a whopping 40 lbs throughout her journey, and has dramatically increased her skills. We love her energy and encouragement and are happy to have Tracy as our October member of the month.
1. What do you do for a living?
I am a Pharmacy Technician for Meijer in Benton Harbor
2. What do you do for fun, other than CF?
I play percussion in the South Shore Concert band and enjoy going to the movies. Mainly for the popcorn and then sometimes (too often) a nap. Lol
3. Why did you choose FMCF?
My friend Jen Qualls was doing a boot camp and I went to Bring a Friend day. I hurt for days after! Lol But decided to give boot camp a try and have been coming ever since.
4. What is your favorite CrossFit workout/movement?
I love lifting days! I am best at back squat.
5. Who inspires you?
Everyone there is an inspiration! But mainly all the ladies in the 9 am class who encourage and support me all the time.
6. Favorite cheat meal?
Greasy pizza and super buttery popcorn.
7. What keeps you coming back to Fort Miami?
I've developed a lot of friendships with the people there and you become part of the family. I am not happy when I have to miss a class because I miss the people.
8. Anything else you want to add?
I was scared to death when I decided to take the plunge and worried about the cost as well. It's not a cheap endeavor like Planet Fitness is per say, but it has been one of the best things I have ever done for myself and you discover the benefits outweigh the cost. And when you aren't buying as much junk food the money figures itself out. You make CrossFit work for you, not just doing a video and discovering you can't keep up with them and get discouraged because there is no support.
