I am new to living in Albuquerque, I’ve been here just a little over a year. I moved here from little old Las Cruces. I am a wife to Matthew Jaramillo and mother to three pretty little ladies…ZyAnna, Maddison and Sammie! I worked with Dona Ana County before moving out here and upon moving here, I worked with Bernalillo County and the State of NM prior to deciding I should stay home for awhile, while my girls and I adjust to the new city and over all, new life! I enjoy working out, playing basketball and volleyball, going to the movies, socializing, and taking country cruises to admire all the beautiful things God created and of course, being with my family! 

How I was introduced to CrossFit: I was initially introduced to CrossFit last year in May 2017, by a former basketball coach of mine from 8th grade. She (Michelle Allen) never, ever gave up trying to get me to CrossFit with her! I kid you not, she tried for years! One day, after having been doing 9 Round Kickboxing for a year I was ready for something more challenging. I hit up Michelle and BAMMM!! One WOD & just like that I became a CrossFitter por vida! Haha! Huge shoutout to Michelle for introducing me to this sport that I can’t seem to get enough of! 

If I never had to do this one exercise ever again, It would be awesome: WALL BALLS!!! I mean, who needs to do wall balls anyway, right?! Haha! 

If I had to program my own WOD, it would be: Weightlifting: Squat Cleans WOD:Power Clean & JerksBox jump oversFront squats 

My favorite cheat meal/food is: Well! Well! Well! I’d have to say it’s Peter Piper Pizza & the desserts are endless! Haha! 

What is your favorite type of music to workout to?: Not country music! Haha! I like to workout to hip-hop and some rap, “Okuuurr!” 

My proudest accomplishment is: I’d have to say that despite how hard I am on myself in the gym, I have had tons and tons of accomplishments in CrossFit! Every single time I go up in weight, or move on to the next progression of a certain exercise, every time I PR, etc…it’s A HUGE accomplishment to me! Aside from CrossFit, being a good wife and mother have been huge accomplishments to me. Anyone can get married and have kids, it’s takes guidance and strength from God to be the wife and mother your family needs.

What I love about Bear Canyon Crossfit: What I love about Bear Canyon CrossFit huh?! I absolutely love this box and everything about it. The coaches, the programming, the facility and more so than anything, the COMMUNITY! I love that I look forward to my workouts everyday. We work hard and we have fun doing it! I represent Bear Canyon CrossFit with pride and I am completely honored to have been given this opportunity to be AOTM. I look forward to many more years of growth and gains with all of you BAD ASS BEARS!
