Isabella Horning

Sports have always been a huge part of Isabella's life. She lettered in three sports in high school (basketball, volleyball, and softball) and also loves to play Beach Volleyball. Isabella attended Bishop Kenny High School and recently graduated on May 20! She received a Falcon Scholarship from the Air Force Academy and will be attending New Mexico Military Institute for a year of prep school before going to the Air Force Academy. Isabella has always wanted to serve her country and after some back and forth between the Army and Air Force is happy with her decision and what the future has in store for her.


How did you find out about Bold City CrossFit and what made you want to join?
I just looked up CrossFit gyms near me and Bold City CrossFit was one of the ones that came up. It stood out to me because there was a picture of all the military flags hanging in the gym. 

What were some of your goals coming into the program?
I was coming back from a bad concussion and needed to get back in shape. I wanted to be in the best shape I could be in when I went to the Air Force Academy.

You seemed a little shy initially coming into the gym but lately we've noticed you've been much more out going. Are you having a least a little fun when you come in?
It always takes a little time for me to warm up and come out of my shell. I love CrossFit and going to the classes. It's the best part of my day!

For being so young you're very motivated, where do you think that comes from?
Being motivated to me is just part of being an athlete. In any sport or exercise I tried I wanted to be the best. I think my motivation also comes from wanting to achieve my dreams. Once I knew I wanted to go to a Service Academy I pushed myself to the best I could be. 


What are some goals you have for school and down the road?
My goal is to graduate from the United States Air Force Academy and be commissioned as an Air Force Officer.

If you had to give some advice to someone interested in becoming a member of our gym, what would you say?
Join! Don't have any hesitations because I wish I had joined sooner. Also just go in and do your best every workout and don't hesitate to try new things.
