ALLISON SCHNEIDERMAN

Home gym?

UES.

How did you find ICE?

I found Ice through my sister and Jackie. My sister and Jackie worked out together on the island, and she was always trying to get me to join CrossFit. I took a few HAIL classes down in TriBeCa with Jackie and loved it. When I found out that Ice was opening up a location on the upper east side, I was thrilled and joined right away. I have loved every minute of the 4 months that I have been a member. I've met some amazing people, both coaches and friends. I'm looking forward to what the next 4 months will bring.

What's you favorite restaurant in NYC and what's your favorite item on the menu?

You cannot go wrong with sushi, and one of my favorite NYC restaurants is Sushi Seki. They have incredible rolls, but I tend to favor their sashimi.

Where were you born?

I was born on Long Island in Manhasset.

What's your favorite CrossFit move?

My favorite CrossFit move is the clean and jerk. It was the move that I struggled with the most while taking foundations, but has become one of the moves that I now perform best.

Who is your celebrity crush?

Celebrity crush is a tough one. Channing Tatum is beautiful, and is high up on my list. Paul Walker (if he was still alive) would be up there as well.
