Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi, my name is Paul and I’m a Crossfitter. I’ve been a part of CrossFit Cataclysm for a little over a year. I'm a 32 year old, engaged (until December), dad of 3. My every day 9-5 is working at a music store as a repair tech. But baseball has always been a passion and when playing was no longer something viable, I became an umpire.
How did you get interested in CrossFit?
The box is across the street from my job. I would always see people running up and down the street and knew that I needed to do something to not only become more fit but be able to be consist and accountable. As an umpire I needed to “look good in uniform” and be able to keep up with college athletes. I saw CrossFit as a way to help.
What is your favorite thing about CrossFit?
For one hour a day I’m able to focus on myself. Sounds super selfish, but sometimes that’s ok.
Tell me about your sock game…do you prefer ankle, mid, or high socks?
My normal workout sock would be the boring ankle sock, but for my daily wear I get as crazy as I can. Love the polka dots and as much floral print as possible!
It might sound funny but CrossFit has made my life easier, here is why…
EASIER?!? No way. Honestly, the energy I’ve gained from being consistent in CrossFit makes my day to day life easier.
When your motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and come in?
That’s what she said.
What is your least favorite movement?
Assault bike. It crushes my soul.
What is the next goal you hope to reach with CrossFit Cataclysm?
My goals are to rx more work outs. Everyday’s a PR!
What would you say to someone that has never tried CrossFit and looking to get started? Any tips or Advice?
Change your mind set, the media doesn’t show the “average” CrossFit person. Yes, it’s going to hurt, but that’s ok. You don’t have to be comfortable all the time. Tips: it’s ok to scale.
If there was a “Paul” workout what would be included?
Rebound for time!
