January Athlete of the Month: Sarah Adcock Tooker


Congratulations Sarah! You are the NoCoast Athlete of the Month!!!


Sarah and Emily started 2020 with the goal of becoming a “fit fam,” and even though they are only one year into their fitness journey, we think it’s fair to say that they are achieving their goals! Sarah’s hard work and dedication to the gym and her nutrition has paid off and she is still putting the time and effort into becoming fitter and healthier. We love seeing Sarah at the gym and it’s been a lot of fun to see how much change one year can make!


Quotes from Sarah:

“CrossFit makes me want to be a better person all around. Labor Day I made the decision to stop drinking alcohol because I hated the way I felt the day after drinking. I want to feel my best and alcohol keeps me from this. I work too hard in the gym to better my life and don’t need to counter my progress with alcohol.”


“Do the nutrition challenges. You learn so much about what your body needs and how your body responds to the fuel you’re providing it. Also, don’t let a workout intimidate you. There are always modifications that can be made, just show up and work at it.”


Age/Weight:

35/160 lbs.

Athletic/Sports history/highlights:

I’m a band nerd, so marching band was the most athletic thing I did in high school/college.

How did you get into CrossFit?

Emily knew I wanted to be a “fit fam” one day and got us a CrossFit gym membership for Christmas 2020. This has truly been the gift that keeps on giving!

What is your favorite WOD/CrossFit movement?

Rope climbs


What is your least favorite WOD/CrossFit movement?

Air bikes


What is your most memorable CrossFit moment?

Murph Day; I was so terrified to do this workout but had an incredible support system throughout the workout. All of the shoutouts of encouragement that day kept me going!


How does nutrition play a role in your fitness and recovery?

I’m thankful for the various nutrition challenges that NoCoast offers because it has allowed me to learn more about the foods that my body needs. I’ve always been one to try the latest fad diet, but they failed time and time again in sustainability. Learning to fuel my body with zone blocks of equal portions of protein, carb and fat was a scary concept at first. But, I trusted the process and saw how my body responded to this new way of eating and when I’m eating my best, I’m performing my best.

How has CrossFit improved your overall wellness?

CrossFit makes me want to be a better person all around. Labor Day I made the decision to stop drinking alcohol because I hated the way I felt the day after drinking. I want to feel my best and alcohol keeps me from this. I work too hard in the gym to better my life and don’t need to counter my progress with alcohol.

How has CrossFit changed your family?

Emily and I love our CrossFit family. CrossFit keeps us on track with our well-being and the family at NoCoast keeps us coming back. I’m also thankful for CrossFit because my extended family in San Antonio has seen mine and Emily’s progress in our short year and have taken steps to better their own lives as well. My aunts, uncle and mom are all part of this CrossFit family too.

Advice to new people:

Do the nutrition challenges. You learn so much about what your body needs and how your body responds to the fuel you’re providing it. Also, don’t let a workout intimidate you. There are always modifications that can be made, just show up and work at it.
