Marcus and Anahi Cordova

Marcus

How I was introduced to CrossFit: 

I was introduced to CrossFit by trying a groupon 3 years ago. I was going to the gym daily with Anahi but wanted to try a different way to train. 

If I never had to do this one exercise ever again, it would be great:

Thrusters!!! I hate thrusters

If I had to makeup my own WOD, it would be:

Running, pistols and ring muscle ups 

Tell us a little about yourself (family, job, hobbies, etc) :

I have 1 brother 1 sister. Love to golf and work at Lovelace downtown with Anahi. We work in radiology.  

My favorite cheat meal/food is:

Tacos

What is your favorite song to workout to?:

Any techno/house music 

What I love about Bear Canyon Crossfit:

The friends that I have made. The great coaching and also I love the programming. I feel like it’s a step above other gyms that don’t use the same programming.

My swole mate and I met at work 11 years ago. We have been married for 5 years this March. We love taking trips. One favorite spot is Vegas.

Anahi

How I was introduced to CrossFit:

If I never had to do this one exercise ever again, it would be great:

If I never had to squat snatch ever again I would be ecstatic!

If I had to make up my own WOD it would be handstand push-ups, power cleans and single unders.

I am originally from Farmington. I have two older sisters and we are extremely close. I love spending time with family and love to dance!! Both Marcus and I work in radiology. I also have a teaching degree in bilingual elementary education I just don’t teach full time. 

What was your proudest accomplishment? (doesn’t have to be CF related):

My proudest CrossFit accomplishment was finally cleaning over one hundred pounds!  I feel like it took me forever!  Now if I could just get those double unders! 

My favorite cheat meal/food is:

Favorite cheat meal is pizza. 

What is your favorite song to workout to?:

I love music, so anything with a faster beat and catchy rhyme always helps for a better workout. 

What I love about Bear Canyon Crossfit:

I love the coaching and people at Bear Canyon. Everyone was so welcoming when we started attending and I have seen major improvements in all areas because of the coaches and programming! Thank you to all the coaches! 

Marcus and I have known one another for about 11 years and we have been together 7 years. Before we started dating I was not active at all. Marcus encouraged me to start going to the gym and to also try CrossFit!  He truly is my swole mate! We love to travel and call Vegas our second home.
