Meet Remy Schor

How long have you been doing crossfit?
I’ve been CrossFitting for almost 2 years.
What brought you in to try crossfit?
It’s a pretty common way for Ultimate players to train – there is a lot of crossover in terms of competition, spirit, community, and approach – and I had a few friends who strongly encouraged me to check it out.
Can you describe your greatest moment within your crossfit career? Whether it is a second with in a wod or a moment you had with a fellow member or anything.
It was when I realized, at the beginning of April, that I could do 4 strict pull-ups.  Since then, I have hit 6 strict pull-ups in a row (just twice) but it was that moment when I went from not knowing I could even do 1 pull-up to stringing together 4, that really stands out.  Increasing that to 5, and earlier in May, to 6 is just an illustration of how we, as athletes, can set a goal and keep improving.
What do you love most about crossfit?

It’s really a combination of the community and the challenge.  For me, those are things that I most appreciate about Ultimate as well, so there’s this very transferable aspect to all of the sports in my life (I rock climb as well). 

How has crossfit related to you outside athletic career as a ultimate frisbee player?
What exactly do you do with Ultimate? Team try outs, Nationals, professional player?
I do a couple of things within the Ultimate community.  I am the National Women’s Director for our player’s association; I recruit, and work with a group of volunteers, I participate in our Competition Committee’s planning and decision making, and I help to promote and advocate for Ultimate across the board (and specifically, for female athletes).
I also play Ultimate.  A lot.  Our official season is from June – October, and we’ve just now wrapped up the try-out process.  I’ll be playing with a Bay Area co-ed team this season and will therefore be travelling nearly every weekend.  It’s pretty safe to say that if I’m not at the office or at the gym, I’m playing Ultimate (or doing Ultimate-oriented track workouts).  Our post-Regular season Series consists of a Sectional tournament, a Regional tournament, and then, for those teams that qualify, Nationals.
As for Ultimate on a professional level, there are 2 competing professional leagues in North America – these are all-male leagues and all of those players are next-level athletes (women are able to try out – and extremely strong female players have (we’re talking about players who are far better than I am) but thus far, none have made a team).
What is you ultimate goal with doing crossfit and how do you plan to achieve that goal?
I started CrossFitting as a way to train for Ultimate, but now I definitely CrossFit to train for CrossFit.  I’m going to focus more on recording my WODs so that I can continue to track my improvement, in an effort to scale less and get better.  I loves stats, so I really ought to be paying a bit more attention to these things.
What is your favorite class to attend?
Favorite movement? Least favorite? Favorite wod? 
Favorite classes are weekdays at 5:30 PM or 6:30 PM and, on the rare occasions when I can make it, Saturday mornings.  Typically my favorite coaches are there at those times, and I know most of the people I’m working out with, which again, makes CrossFit similar to Ultimate, at least from a community standpoint.
I love deadlifts, rope climbs, and pull-ups because I can see myself continuing to improve on these movements.  My snatch form isn’t cooperating in quite the same way, and, although I love a good challenge, I just don’t really feel comfortable with such a wide grip.  I won’t give up on this, but it’s definitely my least favorite lift.
Even though I don’t like running unless it’s for Ultimate, the satisfaction after Murph – as a recent example – makes me super happy.
What station do you like to listen to while working out? haha I obviously already know the answer to this one!
Rap, specifically Eminem, Jay-Z, or Sal’s rap mix.
When Im exhausted from a grueling strength portion and sore from the week what gets me pumped for the conditioning is _____. 
Seeing the friendly faces at Paradiso, thinking about scoring more goals in Ultimate, and how good I know I’ll feel afterwards.
What is your inner mantra or favorite quote to keep you going?
“You find out life’s this game of inches, so is football.”
– Coach Tony D’Amato / Any Given Sunday
Lulu Lemon, Nike, Skins or Crossfit Apparel?  LULU!
Reeboks or minimus?  Neither as of yet.
Oly or endurance training?  Endurance training.
Mathcon or black out zone out?  Mathcon.
