HB COMMUNITY: Meet Founding Member, Caitlin Holland

From burpees, to true love, to a new baby bump, founding member Caitlin Holland tells us how her life has been deeply intertwined with Humble Beast.

Tell us about being a DC native and what you currently do for a living.

I’m from the Washington, DC area originally! I was born in Silver Spring, MD and grew up in North Potomac. I went to school in New Orleans, lived abroad, and then in Philadelphia for a while. I returned to the DC area for the foreseeable future in 2012, living in Arlington, VA for two years, then DC for four years. My husband and I just bought a house on Halloween back where it all began for me, Silver Spring. I currently do marketing and communications for a large international relief and development non-profit association that is headquartered in DC, but works globally.

TIME for Spring at Humble Beast CrossFit

We kicked off the New Year with an evening schedule change and would like to say, thank you. You have all made the transition smooth and pain-free. That has not gone unnoticed, so again, thank you!

Next up, on March 10th is daylight savings time! Yes, another manipulation of time and yet another potential for us all struggling with timeliness. Thus, we felt it appropriate to make March’s goal/focus: TIMELINESS.


If you have not had the privilege to read Coach Jay G’s, “Love the Process” post, you can do so HERE. To dovetail on the moral of Jay’s post, one must figure out the process in order to, love it. Let’s recap his approach. 

1. Mind Set

It is important for us (both coaches and peers) to understand your perspective. Often times, you may believe/ view things to be different than what those around would, and possibly skewed from how things may actually be. The mind can be so tricky!!

For example, in the past, Jay would view himself as, limited, broken, incapable, etc. where I had to remind him, he was not.
