April Member Spotlight: Lauren Harrison


Tell us a little about yourself and how you got into CrossFit?

 I grew up in the upstate of South Carolina, mainly focusing on sports throughout high school. I made the decision to forgo playing tennis in college to move to this beautiful place. I attended College of Charleston and got a degree in something I never used ha. After college, I moved back upstate to go back to school and once that was complete, had to come back home. I discovered CrossFit in 12th grade (2012) after soccer season was over & needed something competitive to do before I went crazy. I attended CrossFit Spartanburg 5am class until I moved for college! 


What keeps you coming back each day? 

Obviously the friends I’ve made & the confidence I get from picking heavy things up and putting them down.


What is your favorite at-home exercise to do?

Walking my German shepherd (Thor) of course.


If you had to do 100 reps of one movement (not running), what would it be?

Power or hang cleans

Pus-pushups or sit ups



What are 1-2 of your goals for 2024? 

Strict HSPU without a mat & improve my cardio.


Favorite lift? 

Deadlift 


Least favorite Crossfit movement? 

The stupid bike


Hometown?

Favorite Charleston Restaurant? 

Leon’s, mainly for the oysters!


If you could do another job for just one day, what would it be? 

Does stay at home dog mom count? If not, probably a forensic scientist as that’s what I always wanted to be as a kid.


What would you most like to tell yourself at age 13? 

 Be yourself & life gets better, I promise.


If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?

I would to love to meet my uncle who was unfortunately killed before I was born. Or my dads birth father since he is adopted!
