Who are they and why are they the Members of the Month
Dani and Suzi are staples of the CrossFit Sanitas Community! They have consistent, energetic, and fun members of CrossFit Sanitas for about 3 years going now. We here at CrossFit Sanitas could not imagine the gym without them. Without a doubt they always come in with smiles on their faces ready to work hard and have fun! We feel extremely privileged to have both of them in our community.
Here’s a little something about Dani!
- What made you join CrossFit Sanitas?
Jeremy was the primary driving force. Our friend Brian Z, a member now at Sanitas, told Jeremy how much fun it was and convinced us to try it. I was at first resistant because I loved watching the Kardashians on the stairmaster for an hour.
- Are there any goals you have for 2018?
To try to do as many WODS Rx as possible to start. Would love to get kipping pullups but that will only happen if I actually try it and a handstand. I could have unlimited goals but that is not realistic right now.
- What has been the biggest challenge you have faced since starting CrossFit?
Letting go of my ego and just realizing I am not the same as other people.
- What are you favorite Movements in CrossFit?
Unlike Suzi, I like box jumps, Overhead squats, SHSPU is my favorite and back squatting (though it scares me a little). I also like when there is running to push me. Lunges and anything with endurance.
- What are your least favorite movements?
I could go on and on but then why would I be there? Snatching because I am so bad at it.
- What advice would you give to a new CrossFitter?
Just like Suzi said, don’t compare yourself to others. There will always be someone better then you at something and someone worse. It’s not an ego thing, you have to have your own personal goals and just move on those goals and not others.
- What is your most memorable CrossFit moment?
Meeting my crossfit wife and yes no repping her on the open – she deserved it – but she did awesome
- What is one fun fact that people might not know about you?
I studied abroad in Israel and Spain and immersed myself in their cultures. Learned 4000 years of Jewish History and traveled to all the places we were studying. Lived with a Spanish family in Spain and was a big sister to two small children.
- Birthdate and Lucky Numbers!

Favorite number 20 and 420 (my half birthdate)- for real
