Athlete Profile – Dakotah Holmes

dakotahWhat’s your day job?
If you count holding down the couch as a job then yes, but if not then no. I’m a full time student at Utah State. My summer job is an oilfield land surveyor for Tri-State Land Surveying in Vernal.

How where you introduced to CrossFit?
Some people in Vernal said I would be good at this “crossfit” thing because I wrested so I tried it at a local gym Crossfit Avenue. Once I moved to college I had to find a new gym to train at…. And here I am.

What’s your favorite WOD or Lift?
Im not sure what my favorite wod is? I think the bear complex is pretty cool!

What is your favorite skill/movement that you have learned at CrossFit IoTA?
My favorite movement for sure is Ring Muscle-ups!

How has CrossFit changed your life?
Crossfit gave me a fun and challenging way to work out and get me back out of the gym.

What keeps you motivated and coming back for more?
I want to make it to regionals as an individuals. I know I have a long way to go. So it makes it pretty easy to come in day in and day out!

What’s something you know now that you wish someone would have said to you when you started CrossFit?
Things are going to be hard, but if you work hard you can accomplish anything.

daktah-ohsOne word to describe me would be…

I have always wanted…
To go skydiving! That would be the coolest experience of my life for sure.

Outside of the gym, I like to…
Play sports, go to dances, chase pretty girls, go to concerts, hang out with friends, play video games, go snowboarding, wakeboarding and anything else with a board. Spartan Races and other obstacle courses.

Three things you would always find in my fridge…
Milk, Cereal, bananas

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me…
I like to watch nail painting videos on Instagram. The leave mesmerized! (It’s a little Femi to say out loud but its cool)

Favorite physical activity outside of CFI…
Probably some sport. Either volleyball, football, spike ball, or wakeboarding.

Beto’s at 2 in the morning!

Song(s) that gets me pumped up for a workout…
Any hard song by Five Finger Death Punch.

The last thing I ate was…
Butterfinger cups

My proudest accomplishment is…
Winning Prom King, or Winning TOC? They pretty much on the same level.

My six month goal is…
Make it to 2015 Regionals, either team or individual.

My favorite workout attire is…
Headband!! After that I don’t really care, shorts or snakeskin spandex

My favorite workout partner(s)…
Casey, Jenni, Habb, Cerissa, Jess, Becca, Shane “Atticus”, Coach Joe, Dayton-“Heavy D”, Daryl, Tam, Tam, Nick (when he came), Matt, Paul, Jerry, Steph, Doug, Ryan “Ryno”, Ronnie, Charlie, Bailey, Lane -”Heidi”, Mellissa, Brian, Justin, Kendl, Ryan, 5 am gIrls, Sue, Stace, and anyone else I missed who goes to the gym!! I just hate working out by myself.

If you created a WOD and named it after yourself what would the workout be?
Something with Ring Muscle-ups, handstands, and Bear Complex for time. I’m not sure about the reps?
