July Athlete of the Month: Marcelle!!

Marcelle Athlete Profile 

· What made you want to start?

I recently moved here from the Dominican Republic where I was actively surfing and dancing, and I wasn’t able to do those as often here. I decided to give Grassroots a shot since it’s close to my house.

What was your experience in joining our gym?

Being a part of Grassroots has been great. I come to the 6:30 class and Coach Atchie is very welcoming; and the gym itself has everything I need. I really like the combination of exercises and the way we approach each class with running, stretching, strength or skill work, WOD and accessory work.

Do you check the workout before coming in or do you just show up?

I don’t check the workout – I just show up.

Do you have a favorite exercise or movement?

I love back squats.

Least favorite?

The assault bike!

What’s your most recent PR?

My most recent PR was 145# deadlift.

What fitness goals have you set for yourself to achieve in 2016?

I haven’t set any specific goals – I just like to have fun, and starting the day at Grassroots fills me with positive energy for the day. But, being able to do a muscle up this year would make me really proud of myself!

Where are you from?

I am originally from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and I am a student at UC Berkeley.

If you could describe Grassroots in five words, what would they be?

Positive, energized, welcoming, fun and encouraging.

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox
and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Bless you!

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I encounter a blog that's both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you've hit
the nail on the head. The issue is something too few folks
are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy that I came across this in my hunt
for something relating to this.

Howdy! I understand this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
Does running a well-established website like yours take a massive amount work?
I'm brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my diary daily.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my
experience and feelings online. Please let me
know if you have any ideas or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and
she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had
to share it with someone!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into
any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement?
My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either authored
myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web
without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help protect
against content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
