MANDY CASTINO!

How long have you been working out at Depot Hollywood?

I have been working out here since 2014!

 

What are your favorite movements/workouts?

I love doing squats and lower body movements. And I love that the workout is new every day so I never get bored.

Who is your favorite coach and why?

That's a hard question because I like all of the coaches for different reasons! I can't just pick one. Everyone has a great teaching style and everyone has been so helpful to help me scale the work out if I have an injury or feel sore that day.

What changes have you experienced from making Burn a part of your daily life?

Since I've been doing Burn, I have lost about 15 pounds and quite a few inches. I feel a lot stronger now doing daily activities and definitely am in the best shape I have ever been in my entire life.

What do you do outside of the gym? Job/Hobbies/Interests?

Outside of the gym, I am a freelance journalist and make up artist.
I also make hip hop music under the name Realistikk :)

What advice do you have for anyone new to trying CrossFit/Burn?

I say go for it! It is challenging, but after a few weeks you'll get stronger and it'll get easier.
