I Coach: I mean I’ll tell anybody, she’s the best athlete to work with, bar none, out of out of anybody ever worked with. I don’t know how she does it. Whatever it takes to make herself better she just does Brista: You are a crazy kid My name is Brista Mayfield and I’m training for the CrossFit Regionals I had a gymnastics scholarship and an academic scholarship, so gymnastics was the thing that kind of brought me to Texas but once I graduated college I was able to add a little bit more time to do CrossFit and go to a CrossFit gym So I started that in the fall of 2010. I really had no idea What was going to come of it or anything like I just was doing it for fun So I did the Open in 2011 and made it to Regionals that year 2012 did the same thing made it to Regionals After 2012 I took 2013 off. I had my son Bo and then I took that year after 2013 took from there until Bo I said I was going to give myself a year to get back to where I was Coach: She needed a year just to kind of Take a step back and say hey, I can’t you know commit so much time and then right after she went team She’s going back individuals.

There’s athletes that are committed as her, I won’t say that there’s no one as committed But to have a husband who travels, to have a little son who comes to the gym with you? 100% of the time, I mean to work all in between that, catch no breaks She’s I mean she’s she’s made it. I don’t know how she does it Body-wise Health-Wise you know recovery wise I’m Feeling really good, so I’m excited to see how the next couple months goes with training and stuff too.
