Athlete of the Month – March 2019 – Fatima Hussain


Athlete of the Month – March 2019 – Fatima Hussain

1. What is your favorite thing to do (other than workout at CrossFit 

I have two young kids, ages 4 and 2. My fun activities are usually around them. I love taking them to parks and beaches during summer time. I can watch them play for hours while I enjoy my coffee. I also love watching TV (usually news, HGTV) after the kids go to bed. 

2. If you are going to treat yourself, what is your favorite “cheat 

So many to choose from, but one thing I can eat everyday, and totally worth cheating, is “Five guys double cheese burger”. Fortunately there isn’t a Five Guys in Dover otherwise someone would be having a heart attack soon.

3. Where would you go and what would you do on your dream vacation?

I have been planning to go to Hawaii for the past several years. I specifically want to go to Maui. Love its black sand beaches, the weather and loads of fresh tropical fruits. Hopefully my kids will be able to take the 12-hour flight in the near future and we all can go on our dream vacation.

4. If you could have any career, what would be your ideal job?

Being a physician is one of the best parts of my life. I work several weeks without taking a break because I love seeing patients and helping people in their most vulnerable moments of life. It’s challenging to work full time while having two young kids especially when my husband lives in Miami. I feel blessed because God has given me the opportunity and ability to help others in their tough times. There is no better career for me other than being a physician. 

5. What is your favorite CrossFit movement or workout?

Squats, squats, squats (front, back, all versions of squats). 

6. Anything else you’d like to share?

I will be moving to Miami next year and for past few months I have been searching for houses in Miami based on their proximity to CrossFit Boxes. Thanks to Coach Jen for introducing CrossFit to me when I randomly asked her once about CrossFit and she asked me to come workout. Not only do I feel stronger, but I also have so many new friends and acquaintances. I will truly miss CFD when I move to Miami.
