December Member Spotlight: Peta Nicola
Tell us a little about yourself and what got you on the path to CrossFit
I’m Peta, originally from Lima, Peru. Came to the USA when I was 18. I love to dance and do crafts. Came to CrossFit because I was tired of people making fun of me because of the way I look. You are too skinny, you are tiny… I was scared at first, but I’m glad I did it. I look forward to getting
better at it and to gain muscles and to look good and feel good about myself.
