Meet our member Maisyn Hall


Welcome to our weekly Q&A session with our members!

This week we will be be highlighting Maisyn Hall. Maisyn is a 20 year old university student in her final year and she's been doing CrossFit for 2 years now!

Lets learn more!

CrossFit Durst- Hey Maisyn! Thank you for giving us your time! So you've been doing CrossFit for 2 years now. What is it that you love about CrossFit that keeps you coming back?

Maisyn Hall- I love crossfit because of the community. They push me to lift heavier, and run faster each and every day! I also love having the workouts programmed for me, as I would never be able to see the results I do if I was planning the WODs myself. 

CD- Having all those people around you to push and encourage has to be a great feeling! What is the biggest change you’ve seen in yourself in the past 3 years at CrossFit Durst?

MH- The biggest change I’ve seen in myself from CrossFit is my mentality. I used to always push going to the gym aside, and never saw it as something fun to do on my own. Now, I go to the gym by myself frequently, as I see it as a fun activity that I get to do with a great group of people. It is now something I look forward to every day. 

CD- That's an amazing change! What are your next CrossFit goals?

MH- My next goal is to connect my pull-ups and learn how to do them butterfly. I look forward to when I can finally do pull-ups in a WOD without being as slow as a turtle!

CD- You'll get there! That's an awesome goal! What would your favourite workout look like?

MH- My favourite WODs are AMRAPs because I love the feeling of knowing I just have to push as hard as I can until the time is up. 

CD- Haha those are the best! You know you only have to endure for so long and its over! Can you speak a little bit about the CrossFit Durst community?

MH- My favourite thing about Durst and the community is how welcoming everyone is! I am always greeted as soon as I walk in the door by the coach and the other people doing the class. I always leave with a smile on my face, and can’t wait until the next workout.

CD-  It's always great to hear amazing things like that about Durst. What would you say to someone who is thinking about getting into CrossFit?

MH- I would say that Crossfit is a great way to get into shape if that is what they are looking for! It is a good workout in only an hour so it doesn’t waste your entire day. Everyone is also so friendly that you don’t need to be nervous or self-conscious when you arrive for a class. 

CrossFit Durst- Thank you so much Maisyn, for taking the time to answer our questions! Keep up the great work and enjoy crushing your new goals!!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know one of the members in our community.
