Athlete Spotlight on Taryn Aponte

unnamed-6

*Taryn is on the left :)

1.  Name and “board name” (or what should your board name be)?  What are your stats (optional)?

Taryn

2.  Where did you grow up?  Where do you live now?

I grew up in Massapequa and now I live in Amityville.

3.  What do you do for a living?

I am a special education teacher at Island Trees Middle School in Levittown.

4.  When did you become part of the Diamond family and why did you join?

I became part of the Diamond family in 2012 after the birth of my second daughter. I decided Big Al’s wasn’t going to cut it anymore and friends at work used to always talk about crossfit. In fact, that’s all they ever talked about and now I know why! I love how crossfit is helping to change the way young girls and women view their bodies. Strong is the new skinny!

5.  What was your athletic background before joining CFD?

I have always belonged to a gym. I ran track and cross-country for a year in high school but believe it or not, there was always someone with longer legs then me that could run faster. Go figure…

6.  What is your favorite wod/exercise?

I like long chipper wods and deadlifts.

7.  What is your least favorite wod/exercise?

Pull-ups and I have never been friends and wall balls suck too!

8.  What is your biggest milestone, achievement, or “A-ha” moment at CFD?

Finishing a Spartan race, getting double-unders and learning how to eat healthier…bye, bye peanut butter.

9.  What goal(s) are you looking to accomplish?

I would like to have a six-pack, cut arms and an ass like Christmas Abbott’s. Is that too much to ask??

10.  What are your hobbies and interests outside of CFD?

I enjoy spending time with my family, shopping, and Game of Thrones.

11.  What is something that we may not know about you?

I love to dance and used to take salsa lessons.

12.  What is your favorite cheat meal?

Italian food and cupcakes!


13.  What is some advice or encouragement for someone just starting CFD or thinking of starting?

It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort. And when you implement that effort into your life…every single day, that’s where transformation happens. That’s how change occurs. Keep going. Remember why you started.

WEEKEND HOURS:

Saturday:  8:30am  & 9:30am Group Sessions  11am OLY   (All levels welcome!)

Sunday:  8:30am & 9:30am Group Sessions
