October Athlete of The Month!

Congratulations to Holly Duval, October’s Athlete of The Month! Let’s get to know Holly a little better with some questions below.


What is your favorite TV show?

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. I re-watch it far too much.

What is your biggest accomplishment since joining CFS?

I can do banded pull-ups. When I started I couldn’t hold the bar for more than 3 kip swings. I am going to lose the bands in November 🙂

Who is your favorite musical group that you would love to see in concert?

I would love to see The Gorillaz, easily one of the best concerts of my life.

What is your advice to new folks?

To trust in yourself. I was so much more capable than I realized. I was holding myself back from trying because I ‘knew’ I couldn’t. It takes patience and practice.

What is your favorite CrossFit movement?

I like kettlebell work, particularly Sumo Deadlift High Pull and Goblet Squats.

What is something most people would not know about you?

I listen to classic hard rock and metal. Big Black Sabbath fan, Ozzy by extension.

What is a fitness goal you have for yourself?

Complete Murph with a vest.

What is your favorite meal? Healthy and not so healthy?

Chicken Saltimbocca, with angel hair pasta – with too much cheese please. For a healthy meal, I like zucchini noodles with chicken and mushrooms in lemon garlic sauce.

If you were stranded on a deserted island and could have 3 things with you, what would be they be?

  1. Shakespeare’s works – “The Globe Edition”
  2. An album of my family + friends.
  3. A knife, I’m pretty crafty so a blade would go a looong way.

Thanks for sharing with us Holly!
