Who is Megan?
Hi! I’m Megan Wetzel. I’m 19 years old and I’m studying Criminal Justice at Boise State University where I just finished my second year. I plan on becoming a cop once a graduate. I've lived in Boise for almost 2 years now and I have 2 canine babies. When I was a kid my dad started me in a lot of sports and a majority of the sports I tried came very easy to me. I ended up just focusing on playing softball during high school where I made varsity my freshmen year. After high school my passion for softball was gone and I wanted to find something new. That’s when one of the guys that use to work with me invited me to try to Crossfit. I signed up my first day and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made.
I’m addicted to CrossFit. I spend more time watching CrossFit tutorials than I’d like to admit. I've been doing CrossFit for almost a year and now I can do things that I seriously never thought I could do. In 6 months of doing the weightlifting I took my clean from 100lbs with terrible form to 155lbs. I can also split jerk 155 when in January I could barely put 95lbs over my head. Not only can I do pull ups but I can do a bar muscle up as well. This year I even competed in the CrossFit games open where I got my butt handed to me each week but it only motivated to try to work even harder. During 13.5 of the open I actually got my first chest to bar pull ups! Then there are all the people that I get to work out with on a daily basis that make CrossFit even more enjoyable. The people that I get to work out with every day automatically raise the bar for me all the time with how good they are. I’m always getting help and tips on how to do certain movements or become more efficient at them. Tony and Trina are always helping me with my nutrition, programming, supplements and recovery. The recovery part is hard for me because I find it very hard to take a rest day. The sense of community that is at the Station is the best part about working out there. I get to have fun every time I work out.
How has your athletic career changed?
For a majority of my life I've been a competitive athlete. I got burned out on softball by doing it for 13 years, all year round, but with CrossFit I’m never bored with any of the workouts. I always get excited when I see the WODs and can’t wait for the morning to come. I want to be able to do a muscle up on the rings by my 20th birthday in just a couple weeks. My goal is to one day compete at the North West Regionals for CrossFit and until then I’ll just keep training to become the best I can!
