But after hours, our team members shed their marketing capes – and pursue all kinds of cool Hobbies, Interests and Talents (we call them HITs for short).
Here’s what Caitlin Dwyer, a Digital Marketing Advisor with Haley Marketing, is into:
HIT: Working Out
I’ve always been an active person; playing outside as a child led me to join organized sports at an early age. I played a variety of sports through my teens and into my adulthood, enjoying their camaraderie, challenge, fitness and social aspects.
After I completed my education, I transitioned into fully incorporating workouts into my everyday life. Then, two years ago I tried CrossFit (high intensity interval training) for the first time – and I was hooked.
What do I love about working out?
Working out provides a good outlet for stress relief, gets you moving, and really helps prioritize things in your life.
CrossFit in particular has helped me become comfortable with being uncomfortable. By pushing my limits, I have been able to hit goals I didn’t think I was capable of. The confidence I gained in the gym has spilled over into my everyday life, helping me accomplish more both personally and professionally.
How has working out changed my life?
CrossFit has taught me that we all can achieve things that seem impossible by pursuing goals one step at a time. Any time I have thought I wasn’t capable of doing a lift because I thought I wasn’t strong enough yet, I surprised myself. Continually hitting higher goals has really opened my eyes, showing me that we hold the keys to our own success. We are all capable of things we didn’t think we could do; we just have to find it within ourselves.
