How did you find CrossFit? I was tired of working out at the regular gym, I felt like I was just spinning my wheels, and I had heard of this thing called Crossfit so I hit the internet and started doing some research. That lead me to the official Crossfit site and through them I found Clear lake Crossfit!
What is your athletic background? I don't really have an athletic background. I used to play all sports as a kid, and did some pickup basketball occasionally but not much more, until I decided to get in shape.
How hasCrossFit changed your life, lifestyle, level of fitness? Well Crossfit has given me confidence above an beyond anything I would have ever expected. Many, many times I look at the board and think "No way", but manage to finish! This confidence has absolutely carried over to the rest of my life. My level of fitness is miles ahead of where I was before(Ha!). Not one year ago I never would have been able to finish the Spartan race, not only did I finish but was in the top 1% this year!
What motivates/inspires you? Watching my fellow crossfitters push through the pain and exhaustion to finish a challenging workout!
What is your proudest (CF) achievement? Doing a handstand pushup!
Name one goal/personal achievement that you would like to achieve through CrossFit. Muscle up!
Hobbies/Interests outside of CrossFit? Reading, playing guitar, playing video games, working on my car.
What is your favorite cheat meal? Oreos!
Any advice for new members? Don't think, just do it. If you think too much about the WOD you will psyche yourself out. Just dive in and give it your all.
Have you met Pukie? I have. My first Saturday WOD back when they used to be crazy. Thanks Cory!
