State your Name and/or Nickname please.
Catherine “Cat” Johnson

Words to live by?
“Never say Never” – Justin Bieber (via my daughter Reid)

What’s your favorite part of CrossFit?
The constant challenge to push yourself to the next level.  It doesn’t matter how good of shape you “think” you are in, a person can always be humbled by one of Wes’ killer WOD’s.  I never thought I would enjoy working out with others, but that has been one of the best parts of CFA.   Everyone supports each other.

What are your training goals?
700 lbs CrossFit Total by the end of the year.

Favorite sport or activity?
My favorite activity is being with my husband and kids. They make me a better person.

Recent adventure you’re planning?
I will be attending my 20-year high school reunion in July.

Blake and I just got back from taking the kids to Disney World.  Our kids think we are the S%^T

Tell us something we don’t know about you?
I once partied with Kip Winger of WINGER. I realize that about 70% of you have no idea who he is, but he sang some of the many musical gems of the 80’s.

Longhorns or Aggies?
I am a loyal fan of the Killer Horned Frogs of TEXAS CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY. I’m a bit fanatic about my Horned Frogs, especially during football season.

If I had to pick, Aggies. I’m anti-longhorn.

The Johnson’s have a strangle hold on CrossFit Austin related pictures on our website? Give us some insight whats it take to take a great CrossFit Austin picture?
Having kids in the picture usually helps. In fact, we can contract the kids out for photos, for a nominal fee.

Leave the fine folks of CrossFit Austin with some parting words?
The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.-Vince Lombardi
