Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am originally from Southern Maryland. I got stationed at Ft. Hood in 2014 and have been here since. I got out of the Army in August of 2017. I started coming to CFC in 2015 and haven’t looked back since. I’m lucky enough to work out and also work at CFC.
How did you get interested in Crossfit?
I first heard about Crossfit when I was in high school from my wrestling coach. I thought it sounded weird. I didn’t actually start doing Crossfit until early 2015 after I started watching the Games and thought “hey, I can do that”. Not knowing how hard it actually is…..
When your motivation is down, how do you find the drive to get up and come in?
I just tell myself to get to the gym. I know that once I get to the gym, things will take care of itself. Being around everyone else is all the motivation I need to get my workout done.
What is your least favorite movement?
Double Unders!! I can never find my rhythm.
What is the next goal you hope to reach with Crossfit Cataclysm?
To qualify for one of the new Crossfit-sanctioned events, either as an individual or on a team.
What would you say to someone that has never tried CrossFit and looking to get started? Any tips or Advice?
Just get started. Find a gym, preferably ours, and come in. Everyone thinks that you have to be “in shape” to do Crossfit, but that is far from the truth. Crossfit is for those people who are not “in shape” so they can get “in shape”. Crossfit is also for those people who are “in shape” and want to be more “in shape”. Crossfit is for everyone.
