Name: Jeana Rohrs
Where did you grow up: In a farming community in Kenton Ohio; however I have lived in Michigan most of my life.
When did you become a Shift Member: I am one of the original Shift members who started in Josh and Kris’ garage in Jan. 2010.
What do you do when you are not at CrossFit: I work for my husband Neal at our Financial Planning office in Charlotte. I also love to spend time with my family; A.J., Rebecca, Luke, Marybeth, Emma and Owen. I enjoy volunteering at the Hospital Gift store in Charlotte, I love to read and work in the yard.
How did you find out about Shift: I feel as though I helped raise the Miller boys. When they first started talking about and began working out with CrossFit I was able to watch them grow into it. They truly wanted to start a gym and needed a little push from their parents. I joke that I was one of the experimental clients and if we lived through those first workouts they would be confident that they could run and coach at a gym.
When did you realize CrossFit was right for you: I am not certain I realized it however they (the coaches) did.
What is your favorite Wod/Movement: I am not certain I have a favorite WOD. I would say that my favorite movements are Kettle Bell, ab mat sit-ups and squats.
What is your least favorite Wod/Movement: RUNNING!!!!!!
What is one thing you have done in CrossFit that you never thought you would do: Lift heavy weight.
What is something that motivates you during CrossFit Wods? The community and the Coaches are my motivation. I love the feeling of belonging and the support that is always offered.
What is something we may not know about you: I hate clowns!
What advice would you give someone just getting started with CrossFit: Never give up and never think that you cannot.
I like…… vacations on the water with family and friends.
I eat….whatever Emily and Kris says to.
I do….as much as I can to help with my grandkids and kids.
I am….stronger today that I ever thought I could be because of CrossFit Shift.
Coaches if you could help me I would love it. Please include ab mat sit-ups, kettle bell swings, squats and maybe wall balls.
I want you all to know how truly honored I am to be the athlete of the month. I do love you like you are my sons.
