Colorado ski resorts watch out!  Jasmine Yap is coming to a slope near you.  It’s a proven fact that skiers and snowboarders that can do pull-ups become better skiers and snowboarders.  Seeing the progress Jasmine has made in just 2 short months, we’re very excited to get the report on how her CrossFit training transfers to her outside play this winter.
Jasmine and her husband recently moved out west from Boston, Massachusetts.  She now works up the road as a Research Assistant in the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience at CU.
Jasmine is a fantastic addition to the crew.  She is a natural at the barbell lifts and maintains an explosiveness even when the weights get heavy.  We’ve yet to shock Jasmine with a workout, or maybe she’s just really good at hiding it.  Either way, we love her even keel approach and her push at the end of every workout.

Jasmine is at A-basin today.

Never being bored during a workout.

I’d like to eventually do pull-ups with no bands.  Handstand push-ups would be pretty cool, too.

Born and raised in Jersey City, NJ.  My family is from the Philippines.

I am deathly afraid of clowns.  They’re creepy.  (Sorry if any of you moonlight as a clown).
Anything you’d like to add?
I really enjoy the efficiency and variety of exercises with CrossFit.  I also think the Foundations Course is a great way to get started.
