How did you start CrossFit? A trainer at Golds Gym in Millis suggested it to me one day so I gave it a shot. After a short session with Brooks I was hooked.
What is your favorite part about CrossFit? The variety of lifts and workouts we do. When I went to the gym prior to CrossFit I did the same boring lifts multiple times a week with little to no progress. After every work out I am excited to check the website to see what we are doing the next day.
What motivates you to continue CrossFit? It didn't take long to see drastic improvements in my body and overall health. I just don't see any other way to get in the best shape of my life to be honest besides CrossFit.
What are your favorite movements and favorite WOD? I love muscle ups/pull ups...basically any body weight exercise. My favorite WODs are usually on Saturdays. If a WOD makes me feel like I could potentially have a heart attack it's a good one. The harder the better.
What is your favorite CrossFit memory? The nutrition Challenge. Prior to the challenge I didn't eat any vegetables and basically funneled down sugar with all my meals. This made me look at what I was putting in my body and get a better grasp on what I should be eating. I was shocked to see I lost almost 5% body fat in 5 weeks by making simple changes to my diet.
What is the best advice you can give a fellow CrossFitter? Just like with everything else in life the effort you put in will dictate the results you get. Always push harder and never give up. If you do that you'll be happy with what you see.
Tell us something about yourself (NOT fitness related) that others might not know. I’m a huge foodie. I love trying new places all over the state. I'll drive anywhere for good French toast, pizza, or steak tips.
