November Athlete of the Month: Cassandra Huggins

Tell us a little bit about yourself (family, job, interests/hobbies, etc).

I grew up in the Fort Worth area and then moved to College Station after high school where I attended Texas A&M, majoring in civil engineering. While I was there, I adopted a wonderful little monster, Nessie (our now 8 year old dog) and met my husband, Nick a fellow District H member. I moved to Houston a couple years after school and am loving it! Nick and I like taking advantage of outdoor activities that Houston has to offer- from going to memorial park, golfing, or walking our dog by the bayou.  

When did you start working out District H? 

December 2021!  

What made you decide to start working out in general? 

Between planning our wedding that took place earlier this year and general work/life stress- I needed an outlet and working out has always been a great stress reliever for me. 

How have your workouts made an impact on your life outside of the gym? 

Mentally, I’ve been clearer / less stressed and physically, I’m more confidant- taking the extra grocery bag, moving the heavy box, taking the stairs, etc.  

What is your favorite & least favorite workout or movement? 

Favorite – kettle bell swings (really just anything but running- just kidding…)  Least favorite – wall balls 

 What is your favorite & least favorite lift?  

Favorite – back squat 
Least favorite – z press 
 
What are your fitness goals?
 
To consistently show up and push myself. 

 What is your proudest gym moment/achievement? 

Hitting over 100 lbs on back squat!  

What is your favorite quote or words to live by? 

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” -Plato 

 Tell us something people would be surprised to know about you. 

I hate eggs- always have! It makes eating breakfast out a little more complicated…
