Member Spotlight

Sandy Campbell is one of the very first members of CrossFit Vero Beach! In the last six years, we’ve seen her grow so much as an athlete, completely transform her body and we always look forward to her smile and bright attitude to wake us up for the 5 AM class. She’s sweet, tough, hard-working, supportive, consistent…we can’t say enough about this lady! It’s time to get to know a little more about Sandy…

Occupation: Collections Clerk for the Indian River County Clerk of Court

Family: Native of Vero Beach and parents and sister still live here. Married to Doug (30 years next month!), three boys, Chad, Steven and Alex. (I think this explains her toughness!) 

Favorite CrossFit Movement: Front and back squats

Favorite Cheat Meal: Reese’s Peanut Butter Ice Cream

Hobbies: bowling, reading, going on cruises

Little Known Fact: “I never worked out until my early 40s when I started going to The Jungle Club. I had a great group of people to work out with and learned how to eat better and lost about 25 pounds. I joined CrossFit six years ago and learned how to eat (thank you Wendy) and work out even better. I still work out with a great group of people! Since I started working out, my husband runs with me and all three of my kids exercise and have good eating habits.”
