Meet Talia Goldsmith– our TILT V November Member of the Month! Talia’s positive outlook on life fuels the fire to her progress and growth inside and outside of the gym. Throughout quarantine, Talia regularly tuned into (and CRUSHED) the virtual class workouts, showing her C2 Bike rental who was boss. Flash forward to our return to in person classes, Talia was quick to get back into the swing of things, getting back on the barbell and even beginning to tackle her goal of performing a strict pull up. Not having access to the actual rig did not slow her down– Consistent work on building her upper body strength through pulling and pressing exercises, paired with her patience and trust for the process, set her off on the right foot. Fast forward to TODAY, and Talia is putting in WORK. The early morning wake ups, the class workouts, AND the extra pull up work after class… The progress she has made is incredible. We are so thrilled to see where her motivation, positivity and hard work will take her next!

Talia has answered a handful of questions so you all can get to know her better!

1. What’s something that most people at TILT V may not know about you?
I speak 4 languages: Hebrew (my native language), Portuguese, Spanish and English.
2. Where’s your favorite place in the world?
I love to travel and explore the world but at the end of the day my absolute favorite place is at home with my family.  Once it’s safe to travel again I will likely go to Colorado and Israel to visit my family who I miss dearly!
3. If you had to give your “first day of CrossFit” self a pep talk, what would you say?
“Nothing that’s worth it comes easy” -It’s been my motto and has come in handy on a number of occasions throughout my life.
4. What’s your go-to quarantine snack?
I’m really into siggi’s yogurt these days.  In fact, I may have bought out the seasonal pumpkin spice flavor so I could have it around for months to come….
5. You get to kick off the playlist for class– what song are you jamming to for your workout?!
Mamacita – Black Eyed Peas.  During the earlier days of quarantine my girls (ages 5 and 8) would play this song on repeat while I was participating in the virtual classes and more often than not we ended up having a dance party.  I now love listening to this song on my way to TILT!
Congratulations Talia! Well deserved! Keep up the hard work and keep your eyes on the prize!
