This weekend marks the fourth CrossFit Regional for Michele Fumagalli (@fitplatenutrition
), who hasn’t been on the Regional floor since 2015.
"I was five months postpartum last Open, and I always wanted to make it back," the 30-year-old says. "This year I did really well in the Open, and my coach and I were gung-ho about going to Regionals.”
To prepare for the three-day competition, Fumagalli has been working a lot on cardio—a training habit that she attributes to motherhood and the need for short, high-intensity workouts so she can get back to her 21-month old.
"Quality over quantity because I have 60-70 minutes to work out—thankfully because of my husband and my supportive family—so it’s all about getting in quality work in that time," she says.
Fumagalli comes into Day 3 of the competition in fourth and she’ll be fighting to hold onto her qualifying position.
"I didn’t want to come [to Regionals] just to come. I wanted to compete,” she says. “I have a soccer background, and when I played soccer I went into every game thinking I was going to win. I’m trying to take that mindset into Regionals.”
And if she does find herself on the podium, Fumagalli says it would be a dream come true.
"It’s about my family and my daughter. The last mile of Triple 3, my husband actually held her up in the crowd and that kept me going."
