Athlete of the Month - Noom!

in by Lindsay

What's Noom's response to any additional programming at CFNH: "SIGN ME UP!" - We love that about her. Since day one of on-ramp, Noom has been asking the right questions, always looking to improve her performance, and staying involved in the CFNH community. She's a testament to how much progress you can make when you buckle down and put in the work. Can you believe she's only been a member here for 7 months?! 

Thank you for being a dedicated member of our community, Noom! And thank you for telling all of your friends, "You gotta try this place! You'll love it."


1.When and where did you start Crossfitting?

I began Crossfit in May 2018 at CFNH. First start, I didn't even know what Crossfit was, I just want to try to step out from my comfort zone by trying new exercises. After finished on ramp with Coach Spencer, I decided to terminate my 3 yrs regular gym membership. Since then I started to become one of Crossfit addict.

2.We're coming toward the end of 2018. What are some of your goals to accomplish before year end?

Personally, I do have soooooooo many goals but the first two goals which I started to work on were strict pull-ups and double-unders

3.What are some of your recent accomplishments of which you're most proud?

I would say recently I just got my first kick up handstand against a wall. Many thanks Coach John for techniques. I am also recently finished Half Marathon at New Haven Road Race.

4.Do you adhere to any form of daily/weekly diet régimen to power your workout? What does your dream cheat meal / day look like?

So here's the things, I work in restaurant and I love to cook when I'm home. It's hard for me to stay on diet so my daily meal plan are big but healthy breakfast and lunch. Limited the size of my dinner plus controlling carbs, fats, sugar and reducing unhealthy snacks.

My dream cheat meal are Basil Crispy Pork, Barbecue Pork, Carbonara and late night Pizza!!! with a glass of white wine to help digestion system.

5.Design 2 WODs : 1 that is your bread& butter , filled with your movement strength; 1 this is all goats (movement weakness you feel you need to improve)

My bread and butter work out would be anything start from 400 Meters – Half marathon Run then deadlifts, front squats and box jumps.

All goats : overhead squats, snatches and strict pull ups. Literally, everything above shoulders.

6.How do you spend your time when you're away from CFNH?

I work at Rice Pot Thai Cuisine as a restaurant manager which is super close to CFNH (<5 Minutes walk, <15 mins bear crawls). On free days, I love to stay with friends and family and take them to cycling, swimming, shooting, playing Billiards (at the Bars), and finishing Game of Thrones. I’m on the season 7 now, don’t spoil me.

7. What is one fact that other CFNHers may not know about you?

"Noom" is just my nickname. My name is actually “Sunattha”. In Thai culture nickname and first name do not need to be related.

8.Do you have any motivation thoughts or suggestions to folks just getting started at CFNH?
When you first start CFHN, try not to compare your skills to anyone else. They might have been practicing for years, just stay focusing on your movements, listening to the coach and keep pushing yourself harder.

Thank you all the Coaches who encouraged me. Thanks all forks at CFNH who inspired and cheered me during the WOD
