2016 December Athlete Highlight

Our December Athlete Highlight is

Melanie Widmer!


Congratulations Melanie!!! We are so very proud to have you as one of our Founding Member Athletes as well as a wonderful encourager to the 3 Peaks Community!! You will ALWAYS see Melanie with a smile on her face, even if it’s not her favorite movement! She’s made amazing strides and just this last month, got her FIRST Pull-up!!! Dead-hang at that and with EASE! (Next time I’ll have my camera ready!!) So proud of you Mel, and grateful for your heart for this community!
Questions we asked:1. How were you introduced to CrossFit?
I helped advocate for a zoning allowance with the City for 3 Peaks when they were getting going here. It sounded like CrossFit might be fun to try, so I joined. Now I can’t stop!

2. If you never had to do this one exercise ever again, it would be…
Rowing! (Yuck)

3. If you had to make up your own wod it would be?

Deck of cards, but you go by the number and ignore the suits (no jokers, face cards are 10).
2 – pistol squats (one each leg)
3 – inverted burpeees
4 – run 400 meters
5 – burpee pull ups
6 – push ups
7 – Russian twists
8 – box jumps
9 – push press
10 – dead lifts
J – back squats
K – sit ups
A (11) – air squats
4. Tell us a little about yourself, families, hobbies, job etc. 
Sid and I have been married for almost 25 years. We own Madras Sanitary Service (yes, we are white trash). I’m taking classes at OSU Cascades trying to finish up my BS in business administration (better late than never). I love to travel, hike, read, run…and CrossFit!

5. Your proudest accomplishment:
I’m proud of my company, and a lot of what we did during my time with the city (especially building the new city hall), but I think I’m most proud of (and grateful for) my family.

6. Your favorite cheat meal? 
I do love a big, buttery, ridiculous pasta meal the night before a race. It just seems right.

7. What you love about 3 Peaks CrossFit? 

I love so many things about 3 Peaks! I love being challenged and seeing gains. I love how encouraging everyone is to each other. I love that this is something my husband and I can do together. I love seeing everyone else push their limits, and keep going. So inspiring!

8. Something we might not know about you is?
I’ve visited 30 different countries (and hope to visit many more!)
