Congratulations on being

3 Peaks CrossFit November Student Athlete Highlight.

Shandi Taylor

We are so excited to have Shandi as an athlete at 3¬†Peaks CrossFit. She has a positive attitude, is an encouragement to others, and most importantly, has a coach-able spirit. It is so refreshing! She’s an amazing hard worker with no excuses.


This gal is full of determination and fun, making any class she goes into more exciting! We are thrilled to be apart of her fitness journey here in Madras, and look forward to seeing all the continued success she will have!


Here are some questions we asked her, to get to know her a little better.
1. How were you introduced to CrossFit?

I was introduced to CrossFit by some friends in Newberg, and started when Kayden was 9 months old in 2012.

2. If you never had to do this one exercise ever again, it would be?

Double unders are the worst. I struggle with them and always end up with huge welts afterwards from the rope.

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

5 rounds of 12 deadlifts, 9 power cleans and 6 push jerk.

4. Tell us a little about yourself, families, hobbies, job etc.

I’ve been married for 8 years and we have 2 kids. We moved to Madras this last summer for my husband job and I ended up transferring to St. Charles in Madras. I am currently a MA and hope to go back for my RN soon!! We are loving Madras and the community.

5. Your proudest accomplishment?

My kids, running the Portland Marathon in 2010 and competing in the Summer Games in Bend in 2016.

6. Your favorite cheat meal?

A yummy hamburger and fries.

7. What you love about 3 Peaks CrossFit?

I love that every day is a different workout. Love getting to meet new people. There is never a dull moment in the 5 am class.

8. Something we might not know about you is?

I went on a cross country road trip with two kiddos. We love to travel.


Each month, the coaches at 3 Peaks CrossFit choose an athlete that is “standing out” in some way. Whether it is at the box, in their fitness journey, or outside the box and completely non athletic, inspiring others, we want to recognize them.
