Featured Athletes – Sophie Hurley

 My name is Sophie Hurley and I started doing CrossFit in July of 2021. I’m 21 years old, a senior at Lamar University, and a dancer/dance instructor. I’ve always been active but the last few years I was missing something and struggling with my health journey. CrossFit was introduced into my life at the exact right time and has exceeded my expectations and completely changed my life. I always watched videos of CrossFit athletes in admiration and I never thought that I would end up spending most days at CFB. Since joining this CFB family, I have lost weight, gained muscle, become a better dancer, and reshaped my mind. I’ve been told over and over by the coaches how important repetition and consistent practice is, especially when trying to develop and refine a new skill. The coaches and fellow athletes are phenomenal people to be around and some of the most uplifting, inspiring people I’ve ever met. I’m so thankful to have coaches and friends who push me to be uncomfortable and therefore make great progress. I’ve been able to live out one of my favorite quotes in real life. “A river cuts through rock not because of its power, but because of its persistence.
