What’s up Union Fam, 

I wanted to introduce myself on the blog to give you a better understanding of who I am, what drives me everyday and how I like to train (since this is a gym after all). My Name is Jocelyn Lemay, I’m 26 and I’m coming into Union Fitness as your new Director of Business Operations.

My entire life I’ve been an athlete, from Running to Competitive Swimming, working hard was drilled into me. It wasn’t until the summer before my Junior year of college that I found CrossFit. I know what most of you are thinking BUT I promise you I will deter you from any preconceived ideas you have about my chosen sport.

To make it brief, I’ve been doing CrossFit for 5 years and have gone from 105lbs to 150lbs over the course of this journey. Not only did I gain muscle but I learned to absolute love my body for what it can do rather than what it looks like. Although loving what you see in the mirror is important, being a strong female in todays society is what drives me. 

You’ll probably see me up in Union doing my thing but if not, you can find me training competitively with my other teammates. Here’s a little example of what a typical weekend day looks like for me, today I will be doing my Sunday’s programing because I felt sleeping in was more important for my body.

OLYMPIC WEIGHTLIFTING

OTM (on the min) x 15

Hang Power Clean and Jerk – Starting @ 70% then work up from there

STRENGTH

Back Squat 5 x 8 – Every 3 minutes

Start at 85% of your 8RM then build in small increments

1:1 Work/Rest

5 Rounds

2 Rope Climbs

65ft HS Walk (does not have to be unbroken)

5 DBALL over the shoulder 100#

CONDITIONING (For Time)

42-30-18

WallBalls #20 to 10ft

GHD Sit Ups

This is a pretty high volume day and as I start to gear up for my competitive season the focus will shift and training will be mainly about maintaining my fitness through the qualifier season.

On Wednesday, starts my first online qualifier of the 2020 season. This will be for the Mid-Atlantic CrossFit Challenge held in Washington, DC at the Armory. I will be going through this qualifier on a team (2 male/2 female). We will complete these workouts as a team and hope to place well enough to earn us a spot at this Sanctional.

Hopefully most of you will get to know me a bit more personally as you see me around the gym, I’m a blondie right now but known for dying my hair the craziest of colors so TBD on what color it ends up being the next you see me.

Much love Union Fam,

Jocelyn
