May Athlete of the Month

Anne!

Congrats to Anne Yazdani on being our May Athlete of the Month!
Check out the Q & A we did with her below to get to know her a little bit better!

1. When did you first start at TILT?
When I moved to Sudbury, I joined CrossFit Union and then the timing worked out that when I started back up after my 4th, Bode, was born, Tilt was starting up!

2. What is your favorite food?
Lobster and Modern Bakery’s Ricotta Pie…but not together!

3. If you could choose a walkout theme song, what would it be?
Hard to pick just one…but it’s gotta have a good beat!  If I had to pick one today, I guess I’d pick Jump Around (House of Pain).

4. You just won a million dollars! What is the first thing you would purchase?!
Another trip around the world with my husband, but this time with my kids too so they can see the world!

5. What is your favorite outdoor activity or hobby?
Outside of Crossfit, I love soccer, running, hiking and swimming/boating on my backyard pond!

6. What is your ideal vacation place?
It’s been so long since I’ve been on a real vacation that I’m torn between: vegging at a warm ocean resort, being active by a big lake, or exploring my way through a country I haven’t visited!

7. If you had any advice to give someone thinking about trying TILT what would it be?
If you’re ready to make a change in your health, go all in and join Tilt!  You’re worth it and your family will thank you for being a better you!  No matter where you are in your current physical status, you will get fitter and stronger, sleep and eat better, and look and feel better!

From Coach Eddie:
Welcome to the 2nd session of the Olympic Weightlifting Seminar. It’s been awhile since we’ve met at the bar, hasn’t it? Glad we agree. That just means it’s the perfect time for you and I, along with a few more like-minded athletes, to come together to dive a little deeper into the sport of Olympic Weightlifting! For this session, we will dig into the details of every lift and learn new drills that will help you improve both your Snatch and Clean & Jerk. We will discuss how certain changes in stance and grip can sometimes be the limiting factors keeping you from that new PR, as well as who your favorite Olympic Weightlifting athletes are. We will also have dedicated time to put your practice into play by eliminating the “For Time” pressure by moving a bit slower, allowing you to be better prepared for every lift and increasing your chances of success. The aim of this course is to help you build on the skills you already have, and further help you develop into a better weightlifter. If you attended the previous session, there have been adjustments made to the programming that you can enjoy and learn from. Athletes will have the opportunity to work on positions and strength at home or during open gym with accessory work to be performed during the week. Additionally, all participants will be granted access to the FB Weightlifting group for additional resources and access to movement demonstrations. There will be a 5 week strength accessory program for athletes to follow upon completion of the seminar. All I need you to do is sign up. Come ready to play, and ready to learn. Ready to have fun. I don’t know if I said this before, but we’ll be lifting. So…….meet me at the bar. The bar…bell.

Find out a little more about Nate…
I was a distance swimmer from the age of 7 until I hung up my goggles in 2010 at the age of 36. I decided that I wanted to translate long distance swimming into long distance running and finally “learn” how to run.  I had always tried running but, because I had no idea what I was doing, it was always a struggle and I was always getting injured.  So, I took on a coach in 2010 and he not only completely transformed me into a runner, he taught me mindfulness and efficiency as I prepared for my first 100 in 2012. Nowadays, at age 47, I am a running ambassador for Team RunRun and I am coached by Matt Urbanski (2021 Tarawera 100 Winner) who has continued to level up my game (In the past 6 months I have crushed my PRs in the marathon, 50k, 50m and 100k distances after making new changes to my stride).  Even 11 years later, I find that I am still very much of a student of the sport and it helps that I am my own best test subject.  In 2021 I am focused on 8 major races including Anchor Down 24 Hour in August and Midstate Massive 100 in October.  I am also planning several solo long runs including a 120 from my house to Orleans, MA in June.  I have come to learn that running well involves hard work but it also requires attention to detail and willingness to change and try new approaches.  I love sharing the information and secrets that I have come to learn and that have been passed down to me over the years and am psyched to be able to positively impact others in running.

July 17th, 2020

The Lousianna Po ‘Boy sandwich from Ribizza (RIP) and recreated at the Triple Rock (RIP) in Minneapolis. Which is nothing like any sandwich found in Louisiana, but is amazing.

A lake in the mountains, somewhere with a really good grocery and gastropub nearby.

 

7. If you had any advice to give someone thinking about trying TILT what would it be?
Go for it. Seriously. Start today. It is 100% fun, 0% awkward. The coaches and members create a really friendly and welcoming environment. And the coaches can scale and modify the workouts so they’re right-size for wherever you’re at.
