Featured Member – Missy D.

Name? Missy Daicoff

Where are you from? St. Pete, FL born and raised.Missy

What is your profession? I am currently an accountant at Pricewaterhouse Coopers and more recently a CPA.

How long have you been a member at CrossFit 727 and what were you doing prior? I have been a member of CrossFit 727 ever since the doors opened. Before that I was working out in my brother’s garage box about twice a week.

How did you get involved in CrossFit? My brother and fellow seasoned athlete, George, convinced me to try it out.

Complete the sentence: I knew I was a CrossFitter when… I couldn’t stop talking about it.

What are your favorite and least favorite movements and workouts and why? My favorite movement is either the clean and jerk or back squats. I am much stronger in my lower body and I really enjoy squatting. My least favorite movement is the snatch because it is such a technical lift and mentally it is a challenge for me. However, due to the high volume of snatches that we do, I am starting to appreciate the lift. One of my favorite workouts would have to be Murph, when Dana isn’t measuring out the “mile run”. My list for least favorite workouts is much longer but I think Fran wins that category every time.

What is your biggest accomplishment? Besides making it to the occasional Saturday morning WOD? I think one of my biggest accomplishments would be never giving up during a workout. There have been many times where all I wanted to do was just lay down in the middle of a WOD and not move for the next 30 minutes. But then I look around and see everyone else pushing themselves and the coaches motivating us to pick up the bar and keep moving. Then I realize we are all in it together and I don’t want to let them or myself down. So no matter how long it takes for me to finish a WOD, I’ll finish it.

What are your short and long term CrossFit goals? A short term goal of mine is to back squat 200 pounds and to finally master the kipping pull up. One of my long term Crossfit goals is to compete in another competition.

What are your hobbies outside of CrossFit? I enjoy spending time with my massive American bulldog, Carter. I am lucky enough to have my family in St. Pete and get to see them frequently. I like to travel to new places and hope to see Greece one day. Of course I take advantage of the Florida sunshine and love to be outside at the beach or out on the water.

What is one fun fact about you? I grew up a diehard Florida Gator, but graduated from Florida State University. The UF/FSU game is an interesting day in our household.
