1. Tell us a little about yourself
Hi there, my name is Ruth. I’m a tattoo artist and laser tattoo removal specialist at Alter-Ego Studio in Kewaskum. I have been an artist for around 9 years, art has been my passion my whole life. I enjoy dabbling in many art forms, even the occasional gym wall mural (yes, I did that:)) I have two beautiful, spunky daughters Aubrey and Alaina, who are my world. My boyfriend’s name is Jason, he is cute… and sweet…and all that stuff one looks for in a man.
2. How did you get into CrossFit?
I started noticing a friend on my Facebook doing crossfit, it looked super fun, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
3. How long have you been doing it?
I have been doing Cross fit for around two years.
4. What’s your biggest crossfit accomplishment so far?
This is a tough one, I can’t say there has been one that stands out above the rest. Crossfit has pushed me to do things I never thought I could, whether it be running up the warped wall or climing the rope. Every day is a new challenge and opportunity to accomplish something new.
5. What keeps you coming back for more?
There are so many reasons Crossfit will continue to be a part of my life. The community is amazing, there are always people around to push you to do your best and support you. The workouts are challenging and rewarding. I feel like no matter what your skill level you leave feeling like a badass and it’s fun to feel like that!
6. I know your daughter does CrossFit also, what is her favorite thing about the kid’s program?
This is an impossible question. Aubrey loves it all, even burpees and all the things we hate! She loves her coaches and hanging out with all of the kids. I have noticed a change in her confidence, she is proud to be strong and healthy. This makes my heart happy!
7. If you could be a Disney villain, who would you be?
Me? A villain? I’m far too sweet, but if I had to choose I think I’d go with Mother Gothel from Rapunzel. I mean, who wouldn’t want to have everlasting youth and beauty?
