Congrats to Yadira for being the May Member of the Month at Apollo! Scroll down to learn more about Yadira.

So where are you from originally and what brought you to Vegas? What do you love most about living here? What do you miss most about “home”?
I was born in Mexico City and moved here when I was 11. Most of my mom’s family already lived here so my parents decided to make the move as well.

What I love most about living in Vegas is that almost everything is open 24/7 and what I miss the most about home is definitely the food, especially the taco vendors in every street corner.

Outside of your family and CrossFit what activities do you enjoy?
Going hiking is my thing, I love nature, and I love the after feeling you get once you reach the top and you are sitting down contemplating the view. (This is the one hobby I stopped doing once I became a mom, maybe is time to get back to it)

If you could give your kids 1 piece of advice and hope they live by it, what would it be?
The one advice I would give my two boys is to live their lives to the fullest without prejudice and to be responsible for the consequences that this might generate.

If you could have lunch with ANY person living or dead, who would it be and why?
Right now the only person I would like to have a chance to see again would be my aunt. She passed away a year and a half ago from cancer and even though she knew how much I loved her I don’t think I ever told her how much she meant to me and the impact she had in my life.

Lets assume when we leave this world and go to heaven all questions can be answered. What’s the first 2 questions you would ask?
I have a lot of questions!! But the first two that I would ask are:
Who created God?
Why so much mystery about death, why can’t we know what happens to us after we die?

You’re in a grocery store and some dude knocks over a woman and steals her bag. What do you do first? A. Call the police or B. Throw a can of green beans at his head?
Hahaha, I would with no doubt throw that jerk a can of green beans hoping I can hit his head or at least hit him somewhere.
