Congrats to Ashley Russo for being the October Member of the Month at Apollo! Scroll down to learn more about Ashley.
First I would like to say how excited I am about interviewing Ashley Russo as our Member of the Month on our 5-year anniversary of CrossFit Apollo. When I originally became interested in coaching I invited Ashley and a few of her friends into my parent’s garage for my first group class. At the time I had never coached a day in my life. Ashley has been with us from the very beginning; Before Apollo was even a thought. Ashley then met her husband at Apollo shortly after we opened our doors in 2011. She now has a beautiful daughter with another on the way.
What do you remember about your first CrossFit workout back in the garage days? Do you remember what we did?
I totally remember the garage days. I specifically remember you teaching me how to clean using a wall ball and me really struggling lol I loved the garage days!
I remember thinking I was coolest ever doing my first RX WOD, it was fight gone bad and Trey was my judge!
What’s the day in the life of Ashley like?
A regular day for me is either hanging out with my besties Ryleigh and Lou or I’m at work with Amy Gearin – the best dentist ever! If anyone has dental needs. She’s your lady! 😉
Any clues to what you’re going to be for Halloween?
I’m a huge breaking bad fan so Lou and I are going to be Walter White and Jesse in bio hazard suits. Best show of all time!
If you could create your own Pazookie, what would it be?
This pregnancy I crave anything pumpkin so I’d say a pumpkin Pazookie. But usually I get the Oreo one at BJ’s!
Serious question though. What’s your favorite workout or movements you like to see in a WOD?
I really love anything with a barbell. I’d say a clean EMOM or a bear complex would be my fave.
What is your most frequently used Emoji?
It depends on my mood and who I’m talking to but I’d say the cheeky face one. I love me an emoji
If you could be any animal in the world, what would you be and why?
If I was an animal, I’d be a flamingo. They’ve always been my favorite! I couldn’t wait to see them at sea world when I was little!
What’s the last thing you searched for on Google?
lol I was actually up in Henderson last week visiting your sister Erin and on my way home I googled Robertos locations. Don’t judge me!
