A little more about Virginia in her own words…     I am a 27 year old vegan runner and currently working on my PhD in Forensic Psychology.    I have one and a half years left of school and can’t wait for it to be over.     I love food—I eat all the foods as long as it doesn’t poop.    No kids, no marriage, just a loving dog who is my best friend.     I recently moved from Miami and can’t stand this Texas heat.    I am super excited to be a part of this community and the incredible support and knowledge from all the coaches. Thanks JonesN4 CrossFit for welcoming me into the family!

Virginia Santibanez

Coming from an athletic background in running, Virginia was looking to increase her strength when she joined JonesN4 CrossFit 6 months ago. Despite her busy schedule, she still manages to get her daily workouts in as a dedicated 5:00am class participant. We’d say she’s definitely getting stronger AND just signed up for her very first CrossFit competition. We can’t wait to see where she is in another 6 months. Congratulations, Virginia!

What led you to begin CrossFitting?

I needed a challenge and a change. Running was and is fun, but I wanted to build strength and lift heavy weight. The different WOD’s, coaches, and overall community are so welcoming and supportive, and I truly needed that change.

What are your current fitness goals, and how has CrossFit helped you achieve them?

I want to develop strength, muscle, and mobility. The WOD’s change daily, therefore the take me out of my comfort zone and make me push harder every day. I truly enjoy it and love the pain :-)

Back Squats, Deadlifts…Community WOD’s are FUN

Overhead Squats and Box Jumps
