Devin Craig is a veteran member and our newest mommy at the gym! She brings an amazing energy to every class she attends. Whether she finishes first or last, she’s cheering on other athletes the whole way through. If you don’t know her, you’ve probably never seen her, because she knows no strangers. The only thing better than seeing Devin in a class is seeing Devin when she’s brought baby Quinn along with her!

Do you remember your first time doing CrossFit, how did it go? I remember not wanting to like crossfit…but then I ended up loving it! Lol
What changes have you seen since starting at Crossfit South? I’ve learned to workout in horrendous heat and humidity
Any advice for new people starting or contemplating Crossfit? Anything is worth trying, especially something as amazing as crossfit. The community is really what makes it so amazing. We moved here for work and we knew that joining Crossfit South would help us make friends and feel more at home.
Hobbies/Interests outside of a WOD? I still play golf, occasionally play rugby, and coach the Women’s Rugby team at UGA. Plus my main squeeze baby Quinn!
Favorite cheat meal? Pizza and donuts
What do you want to accomplish by this time next month? In 3 months? Before the end of the year? So my goal everyday is to try and get back into shape after having a baby!
What type of music do you like to WOD to? The rap music that sounds cool and only Natalie knows the words to.
What was is like crossfitting while pregnant? Crossfitting while pregnant was so hot and hard to breath buy my strength was great and going to the gym was good for my spirit and soul!
How was it coming back after having Quinn? Post baby was so hard for me I thought I was going to be back sooner then I was but honestly it was all worth it!
What advice would you give other crossfitting moms-to-be? If you are a regular at crossfit, then you’ll know your body’s limits. Honestly you can do anything you did before pregnancy, you are the best judge of when to slow down, modify, or stop. So keep on crossfitting til that baby comes!
