January 2018 Featured Athlete: Liz Sedlock


Liz Sedlock is an amazing member of our Community at The Hill. She’s super-consistent, always has a big smile and great attitude, and routinely comes in to do workouts – even if she knows they’re going to be tough. Liz recently completed her first workout with full burpees doing the entire prescribed amount. A HUGE feat.

We are so proud of you Liz!

Liz’s Interview:

What’s your athletic background?  Drill/Dance Team – 3 years in high school and 2 years in college.

What was your first experience with CrossFit? When did you start?  My husband had been doing CrossFit for a couple of years, and I decided to give it a try. Plus, the classes I was taking at the gym I used to go to were getting so monotonous. I started Fundamentals with Coach Josh in August 2015.

Why did you choose CrossFit Memorial Hill? My husband used to workout at The Hill and always had great things to say about Memorial Hill.

What keeps you coming back? The amazing coaches. The amazing members who make it a family. Keeping arthritis pain in check. And of course, Hollie!!!

Why do you live in KC- job? school? other? And how do you like to spend your free time? My husband is in the Navy and was transferred to Kansas City in 1997. We were only supposed to be here 3 years. My free time … I like to read a lot, watch movies, and travel (quite a bit now that my son is playing college football in Ohio).

What do you like about KC? We decided to stay in Kansas City because we felt it was a great place to raise a child.

What are one or two improvements you have seen in your life since starting CF?The biggest improvement has been keeping my arthritis in check. Before starting CF, I had horrible arthritic pain in my knees and was popping daily anti-inflammatory pills. It was hard to walk even a mile without taking a break. Since June, I am totally off the anti-inflammatories and have very little pain in my knees.

What are your goals for 2018? My goals for 2018 … continue to walk through that door on a consistent basis, and improve my upper body strength.

What would you say to someone thinking about starting CF? Give it a shot before you decide you can’t do it. You will be surprised.

What’s your favorite & least favorite CF movement? My favorite movement is dead-lifts. My least favorite movement … cleans.

What’s your favorite cheat meal? Mexican Food

Anything else you would like to share with The Hill family?  Thank you to the coaches and members who continue to inspire me!
