MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: BECKY STOVER
Athletic background growing up:
None
I was on a jump rope team named the Bouncing Bears in elementary and middle school – does that count?  🤣 We learned tricks and performed at local events. It did give me an unfair advantage on double unders. I have been doing them since 3rd grade.

How long have you been doing CF?
I started CrossFit in 2013 at a small garage gym in Indiana. It was a small group that went there, probably 12-15 members. I had a friend talk me into it while we were at a wine fest. It’s still the best drunk decision I have ever made.

When did you start Droogs?
I started Droogs in July of 2018, shortly after I moved to Florida. One of the things I was most sad about leaving in Indiana was my gym. We were a close group and I considered them family. I was certain that I would not find that in Florida. Droogs has proven me wrong. I’m now lucky enough to have two gym families. One in Indiana, and one here in Florida.

Hmmm… not sure. Anything that has a rest time in it? 🤪

Before I started this journey 7 years ago, CrossFit was entirely out of my comfort zone. I had never touched a barbell before and had no athletic background. CrossFit has taught me so much, it’s motivating, challenging, and has made me feel stronger and healthier than I have my entire life. I’m so thankful for CrossFit Droogs. I love the coaches, the workouts, the atmosphere and the most of all, the people. I’m thankful to be part of such an wonderful community. ❤️ 

I call her my “Trusty Becky” I can ALWAYS count on her to show up in the weee hours of the morning… I think if I even asked her to wake up at 4 am just so I could have a workout partner she would do it! She’s a great friend, a good listener, a great athlete and CrossFit Droogs is lucky to have her!
