Better Know a Member: Maya Ommi
Welcome back to a newish feature on the CFSBK blog, Better Know a Member! (The name is a play on an old Stephen Colbert segment, Better Know a District.) You all love Underneath the Hoodie and Behind the Desk, and now, in a similar vein, we’ll be profiling members from across the CFSBK community. In our inaugural installment, we introduced you to Monique L. Today it’s time to meet Maya O.!
Name: Maya Ommi
Where were you born and where did you grow up? Born in Tehran, Iran.
How long have you been CrossFitting, and how did you arrive at CFSBK? I found CFSBK online, before moving to the U.S. from Australia. And I really liked the photos of the gym’s atmosphere and energy. So I chose to train at CFSBK.
What are you up to when you’re not at 597 Degraw Street? I’m an illustrator. I love anything creative and visual. Mostly when I’m not training I’m drawing, writing, reading, seeing art, and going to the theater or to a concert.
What’s the first movie you ever loved? It’s a classic French movie called “La Grande Vadrouille,” a movie that makes me laugh every time I watch it.
You have friends or family coming to visit from out of town. What do you take them to do in NYC? I love nature and parks. So, I would take them to Prospect Park or Central Park.
