The Bruton’s (Jenny & Chris)

Name: Jenny Bruton
Age: 42
How long you have been a member at CFSC: 3.5 years

How you got started at CFSC: For 3+ years I was working out with my girlfriend in her basement in the evenings because she had small children and was unable to get to a gym. Chris wanted more time with me so it was his idea to give CrossFit a shot so (#1) we could see each other more and (#2) we would have more structured workouts.

Favorite CrossFit movement: lunges

Least favorite CrossFit movement: thrusters/wallballs

Favorite healthy food/meal: boiled eggs, hummus, RX bars, MEAT!!! J

Favorite part about CFSC: The community/friendships – we have met so many great people through the gym + the surprises I find in my gym bag!

Something we don’t know about you: I guess it could be that I was bald for my first year + of life and when my hair finally started coming in red everyone was shocked since no one in my immediate family was a redhead.

Words of wisdom for people who are new to CrossFit or interested in trying it: I had never touched a barbell prior to joining CFSC. Believe me when I tell you anyone can do it. Anything can be scaled and/or modified and the support and encouragement from the coaches and other members makes this one of the most unique fitness experiences I have ever had!
