1.) What got you started in CrossFit? How did you hear about it?
I started with my wife Lisa. I believe it was something she looked up and liked the idea of having a coach rather than being on your own.
2.) What is your favourite part about coming to the gym?
It breaks up the day and gets me moving.
3.) What is your favourite CrossFit movement? Least favourite?
Favourite, maybe deadlifts
Worst is a toss up between the assault bike and burpees
4.) What are your goals in CrossFit?
Really it was just to get into better shape and feel better.
5.) How do you explain your newfound obsession with CrossFit?
It's been an outlet to get rid of daily stresses from work. Making it a habit has been the best improvement to my back and I get to continue getting that benefit
6.) What advice do you have for someone who is thinking of trying CrossFit?
Just jump in and give it a go.
7.) What does CrossFit mean to you?
It's been an avenue for me to try new challenges, be it heavier weights, or movements that I would of never done before.
8.) How has CrossFit helped you improve your life outside of the gym?
My back and sciatica has felt much better over the last few years. Previously doctors just gave pills for pain and really said there was nothing that could be done. Since joining, I've stopped the pills and have less pain/frequent occurrences of flare ups. It's been a great improvement to my daily life.
