By January 30, 2017 No Comments

Our finest investigative reporter uncovers the secret real life identities of people you’ve only ever seen in sweatpants for our documentary series ALTER EGOS. For our sixth installment @spensermestel finds out a few things about @sandeeshin_was_taken!

:: Usually Attends: 7:00am L2.
:: Started CrossFit: At CFV.
:: Years of CrossFit: 4.
:: Origin Story: Sandee’s husband, David, started at CFV in 2012 and encouraged her to join, but she was too nervous about getting bulky. She doesn’t worry about that anymore.
:: Athletic Background: High school volleyball and dancing.
:: Gym Superpowers: Cleans and double-unders.
:: Gym Kryptonite: Deadlift, though she’s very proud of her 188 one-rep max. It’s four years in the making.
:: Favorite Workout Music: DJ Joey. Favorite song: “Peaches & Cream” by 112.
:: Loves Most about CFV: The intensity. Though she’s gotten better about taking rest days, Sandee once went two weeks straight without a break.

:: Occupation: Art director at Area 23, an ad agency in Manhattan.
:: Hometown: Santa Monica, CA.
:: Years in NYC: 11.
:: Origin Story: She moved to the city with a dollar and a dream and no job.
:: Real Life Superpowers: Hosting. Every week in 2017, she’s cooked a new dish and invited friends over to share it.
:: Real Life Kryptonite: Playing board games. She gets too caught up in following the rules and doesn’t strategize.
:: You’ll Be Surprised To Know: During her last two years of college, Sandee was a back-up dancer for Steve Yoo, a Korean pop star, and toured all over the U.S. and Brazil. Sadly, the only video evidence exists as a stack of VHS tapes in her mom’s house in California.
