Geisa has been a member of 6S for just over 8 months. Ever since first joining, Geisa has committed to a regular routine and has embraced the challenge. She is a dedicated 7am-er and the whole crew notices when she is away! She is a ray of sunshine & brightens up the day with her infectious smile.
Geisa embodies the true spirit of CrossFit. She always brings her best effort and is always willing to learn. She is never shy to give stuff a try and she now confidently kicks up into handstands and is blasting runs in workouts!
Geisa is looking to tackle pull-ups and handstand push-ups next and with her spirit and determination we have no doubt this will happen soon!
We can't wait to see what this year has in store for this SUPERSTAR MOM!
Keep crushing it, Geisa! The entire 6S community is lucky to have you!

I used to like a good challenge when I was younger, so I ended up eating 14 slices of pizza at a family dinner.
How long have you been doing CrossFit? At CF6S?
I completed my foundation classes between Christmas and New Year’s so, 8 months.
Why did you start CrossFit?

What is your proudest CF moment?
When I first learned how to do a handstand.
What impact has CF6S had on your life inside and outside the gym?
I’ve always suffered from shoulder/neck pain related to a jaw issue and the strength that I have gained from CrossFit definitely relieves it. No more pain & no more pain killers!
For someone just starting at CF6S, what advice would you give them?
Sore is my new favourite word! I have learned that it is better to come often - it makes it less painful (2 weeks away from CF is too much!).
What’s your biggest CF goal right now? How close are you?
Handstand Pushup: I just have the handstand part…don’t even have push ups yet. But I am working on it!
