We want to give a big CONGRATULATIONS to Ale Kong, our TILT V January Member of the Month! This achievement has been a long time coming– Ale has been working so incredibly hard over the past year, really making the most out of at-home fitnessing. Ale crushes her workouts on the regular, shares all her experiences on the TRIIB app and on the TILT blog, and has jumped all in to any nutrition or fitness challenge we’ve thrown her way over the past year. Such dedication! We are so proud! Congratulations, Ale– you earned this!

We asked Ale some fun Member of the Month questions so you all could get to know her a bit better!

1. What’s something that most people at TILT V may not know about you?
Although I’ve lived in Massachusetts for many years now, I was born and raised in Hawaii. In winter time, I especially miss being there. I could use some warm weather and beach time.
2. Where’s your favorite place in the world?
I love and miss traveling right now and one of the first places we are planning on traveling to as a family will be DIsneyworld. I went for the first time as an adult and it is one of the happiest places in the world. Where else can you drink around the world and see Mickey all in the same world?
3. If you had to give your “first day of CrossFit” self a pep talk, what would you say?
Still remember my first day vividly. Reflecting back on it, I would tell myself: “Laziness pays off overnight however hard work pays off throughout your life.”
4. If there was a meal or dish to perfectly represent your personality, what would be in it?
This is a tough one. I’m going with ramen. It’s a mix of different things that come together to taste delicious and who doesn’t love it.
