Hey GameDay Community! I’m excited to introduce this awesome team I got to interview at GameDay Mankato…. Dysfunctional Friends! AKA: Amy & Jeremy Humphrey, and Kayla & Joe Conrad
Tell me about you guys!
Our team is made up of a pair of best friends! This is our first real CrossFit competition and we are so excited so far. We made it through the first workout though without dying, so that’s very good! The arena is huge and slightly intimidating at first, but once you start the environment is fantastic and you just have a ton of fun!
What made you guys start competing in this sport?
Joey is the instigator! He’s the one that got us all involved in it. We’ve all been doing CrossFit for around a year, year and a half or so! Overall, being involved with fitness is a great thing to show your kids and keep a healthy lifestyle.
What’s your favorite workout or movement of all time?
“I don’t think I have a favorite… but definitely not thrusters! Anything over my head I’m not a fan of!” – Kayla
“Deadlift Jerry loves deadlifts! I kinda like wall balls!” – Amy
“I am a body weight kind of guy so burpees, pull ups, box overs, all that fun stuff.” – Joey
Do you have any advice for first time competitors or people thinking about trying a competition?
Just have fun! Don’t be nervous about it, just jump right in! We encourage people to try it out as a team, get some good friends and have some fun!
