When did you start CrossFit?
May 29, 2014
What do you love about it?
I love the physical challenge and to experience the constant progressions. Everyday I am able to do something better than the day before. Even the slightest progressions are a source of accomplishment.
Did you accomplish any fitness goals?
I have accomplished many fitness goals. The one I am most proud of is running the 5k without stopping. It was by far the most mentally daunting challenge. Mile 2 is always the toughest to get through, the desire to stop is greatest in that mile.
What is your favorite type of workout?
I enjoy the circuits, and anytime that I am pushing/pulling heavy things… oh and tire flips… that’s a good one!
What is your life like out side if the gym?
I live a pretty quiet life. Work, gym, home, with some occasional travel.
It’s small, just me Ray and our cat, Iris.
Lately it’s been attending lots of CrossFit competitions, but I do like hiking, and cycling.
The most important key to achieving great success is to decide upon your goal and launch, get started, take action, move. 6am making moves early in the morning to start off the day with great energy!!! We love our peeps! We look forward to see the next class at 9am,5pm,6pm or 7pm.
