My name is Becky Faraca. I grew up spending most of my time outside hiking in the woods and playing in the creek. As I grew up I played various sports but spent most of my years playing basketball. As an adult I still had a love for the fitness, but as a military wife and mother, I spent the majority of my time trying to finish college and take care of my family. I had allowed my health and fitness to fall into the category on “my leisure time” and as most busy mothers know, getting that “leisure time” isn’t very easy. It has to be a PRIORITY. The time that I spent in the traditional gym was mostly spent in absolute boredom, watching the calorie burn/time/distance on the treadmill or elliptical, trying to get the most calorie burn for my time. The FUN in fitness was gone. I was eating what I thought was nutritious and going to the gym 3 days a week and still gaining unhealthy weight. My husband Gio had been doing CrossFit for quite a while and encouraged me to try, but I was so too intimidated.
I finally hit a point where I knew something had to change and set up an On-Ramp at the old box. My first day at SolaFide, I walked into a ladies class not knowing a single person. Everyone was welcoming, helpful and real! There were athletes of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels, all equally amazing! It was a workout like none I had ever experienced. I waddled with soreness for a few days and then came back for more. I was hooked…THIS WAS FUN! The community atmosphere at SolaFide is the best, building each other up and encouraging each other through victories and struggles!
Soon I was spending my free time studying all things CrossFit, trying to figure out how to improve myself to get stronger and faster and improve technique. I completed several nutrition challenges that have opened my eyes to what my body really needs to function optimally. I have a passion for the relationship between nutrition and training. My goal as a trainer is not only careful attention to instruction, but to encourage others to get stronger; mind, body and spirit. I feel we all have different areas of strengths and weaknesses and its powerful stuff to tackle those weaknesses and be a part of someone overcoming theirs.
