Meet Hailey!

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

This week we'll be be highlighting someone really special! This week we're highlighting one of our Durst Kids..Hailey Dinsmore!

Lets learn more!

CrossFit Durst- Hey Hailey! Thanks so much for making time for us in your busy schedule! Before we get into CrossFit tell us a bit more about you?

Hailey Dinsmore- I'm 10 years old, I was born in Brantford, I have a baby brother, I love to be active in CrossFit, Soccer, Dance, the Arts, I speak two languages English and French, I love my three dogs, and travel. 

CD- Hailey! You have so much going on, I can't believe you find time to stay that active, learn TWO languages and have time to scratch three bellies! Tell me about how CrossFit keeps you coming back, why do you love it? 

HD- I likes that I get to workout and workout with other kids!

CD- That's really cool, I hear that you don't just like to workout with other kids but you like to also compete against them! What is the biggest change you’ve seen in yourself since starting CrossFit?

HD- Yes! I just placed third in the Lil Beasts competition at CrossFit Elgin!. Since starting CrossFit I've noticed that I'm stronger, I have increased focus and I feel healthier.

CD- That's incredible! Great job! What are your next CrossFit goals?

HD- My next goal is to get a new PR on the barbell Clean and Jerk (I hit 30 pounds in comp).

CD- Amazing goal! What's your favourite WOD or movement?

HD- My favourite WOD is Mini Murph and my favourite movement is a Burpee! 

CD- Ouuuu Burpees are horrible! They're my least favourite. Why did you join CrossFit?

HD- I joined because my mom was doing CrossFit and I wanted to get stronger.

CD- That's so cool that you and your mom can share the same passion! What would you say to someone who is thinking about getting into CrossFit?

HD- If my friends asked me about CrossFit I would tell them that there's always a new challenge, you can always get stronger/faster, it's never boring and I've made new friends!

CD- That's so cool, Hailey! Thank you again for your time, before we let you go. Do you have anything cool coming up?

HD- My next big adventure will be going to Spain next July where I will get to meet my Spanish relatives...maybe I’ll even get to do a workout at a CrossFit gym (my cousin is a coach at CrossFit Principe)

And there we have it folks! 

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

And don't forget that CrossFit Kids/Teens registration is now open and classes are starting in January!
