Sara is unique as she does not come from a strong athletic foundation like most of her fellow CrossFit competitors. She tried different sports while growing up, but will tell you she was a bit overweight and nothing seemed to stick.
In 2012, Sara took a boot camp class where she discovered her natural strengths. She then participated in a local CrossFit competition (without knowing what it was) and placed second. It was at that moment that she decided this was the sport for her.
Compex: How do you use your Compex device?
Sara: I use the device for warm up, recovery, and also when I travel to keep blood flowing after a long flight. I use it every two or three days, but if I am preparing for competition I use it at least once a day.
Compex: What is your favorite program?
Sara: Training Recovery.
Compex: How has Compex helped your training?
Sara: Compex has helped me so much with recovery. I also use it to turn on muscle groups before a workout.
