MONDAY: Meet Our Athlete of the Month: Katie Mussina!

Tell us your full name:

Katherine Grace Mussina

Do you have a gym name or nickname?

My gym name/nickname is “Ganba”!!!

 

What is your occupation?

Well besides being a full time athlete here at the box, I am also a full time student at Blinn working towards transferring into Texas A&M.

 

What made you decide to workout at BlackBox? 

My former coach Michael Lozano who was also an athlete here at the time, told me about this amazing place and I came with him to work out and from then on I decided I didn’t want to go anywhere else!

 

How long have you been training at BlackBox?

I have been training here since late July/ early August of last year, so about a year now.

 

What do you love most about BlackBox?

What I love most about BlackBox is the community. These people and the coaches here are like my family and I wouldn’t trade this gym or these people for the world.

What results have you seen so far? What has been your greatest achievement at the box?

I have improved my strength as well as my Olympic Weightlifting technique by heaps and bounds since I have been here. I was sort of all over the place before I got here… My greatest achievement has been my 47 kilo Snatch lift and recently my 61 kilo Clean and Jerk!

What is your fitness background?

I played sports all through high school but gymnastics was my main one.

 

What are your training goals?

To try to eat right and not get fat.

Do you have a favorite workout or lift?

Well right now my favorite is Clean and Jerk but that will probably change…it usually does every other week.

 

Tell us about your favorite memory at BlackBox:

When I was front squatting with a resistance band around my knees and I had gone down in the squat and the band tore and flew across the room… It was pretty hilarious.

 

What are your “words to live by”:

My words to live by are, “When it comes to life, nothing is given to you. Nothing happens on its own. Achievement requires sacrifice. Not just once but every day.”

What is your favorite hobby/pastime?

Olympic Weightlifting!

 

What’s your next adventure in life?

Hmm that’s a tough one. I have so many adventures that I hope to experience in the next couple of years but a few of them are to transfer into Texas A&M, pursue a career in medicine and make it to the American Open.

 

Tell us something we don’t know about you:

When I am not doing something BlackBox related or school related I enjoy singing and playing guitar in my spare time!

4-6 x 2 Power Cleans

Followed by,

AMRAP 10 min
