FacebooktwitterFacebooktwitter

Eva is awesome! She’s been an LAX member for almost a year now and I don’t remember her missing more than 1 or 2 days in a row during that entire time. And like she says below, always cheerful. Big smile on her face and super friendly!

Would you rather have the ability to be invisible or to read minds?

Invisibility would enable me to go anywhere – FREE TRAVEL! Come to think of it all airline seats are full, so I’ll be standing most of the flights ;-(

Always working hard!

Cheerful

If you could magically gain one skill without working for it, what would it be?

Gymnastic skills! Limitless possibilities with strength, endurance and mobility.

If we did a week of Hopper WOD’s (randomly chosen workouts from a lottery ball style selection machine), and you could remove two movements, what would they be?

(I do hope this is not a trick question, you might reverse this on me and I will be seeing this movement frequently) RUNNING, DOUBLE UNDERS

She may not like double unders, but she doesn’t skip those days!

Rappel down a mountain in a middle of waterfall
