Meet Tori Dow!
CrossFit Athlete / Volleyball / Motocross
1. How long have you been lifting?
I have been lifting for over 5 years.
2. Why do you lift?
Originally I started lifting to improve my vertical and power for volleyball and then crossfit soon became a big part of my life and from there came weightlifting.
3. How does lifting influence other areas of your life, outside the gym?
Lifting has introduced me to so many new people who have had such a massive impact on my life. It allows me to be physically healthy and fit but also helps me mentally. Lifting in the morning starts my day off with a positive attitude. If i have a good lifting day then I have set a good vibe for the rest of the day and I try to maintain that. If I have one of those days that just don't go the way I would like, I take a deep breathe and understand that today will be a day of learning and patience. I keep that in my mind the whole day and understand how my attitude towards that day affects everything.
4. What are some of your other hobbies or passions besides lifting?
I use to be a volleyball player, and made it to Jr. Olympics three years in a row so that sport means a lot to me. I love hitting up the beach with a group of fiends and just scrimmaging until sunset. Another thing I love to do is go up to the mountains behind my house and pull out the dirt bike and just have fun and live a little.
