Athlete of the Month, January 2012
Name: Neil Johnston
Resident of: Clawson, MI
Member of CFR since: Aug 2011
Athletic background? Played some sports as a kid. Baseball, Football, Roller Hockey. Now, when there’s time I like to hit a round of golf in the summer or go snowboarding in the winter.
Favorite and least favorite WOD/movement? Hands down, any Hero WOD. Honoring those who make the ultimate sacrifice so we can sleep in peace at night is awesome. Makes me feel strong…and proud.
Greatest accomplishment? Becoming a Firefighter was a pretty big accomplishment in my life. Now I just want to be a better one. CrossFit helps with that.
Has CFR made you better? If so, how? Everyday is something new. Doing something I never thought I’d do or doing something I’ve done better. Its a surprise everytime. Thanks Coach!
What are your hobbies? Not much time for hobbies. Though lately I’ve been hurting myself at work a lot. Does healing count as a hobby? If it does I’m real good at it.
Top 5 favorite movies? In no particular order: Fight Club, Mall Rats, Hangover, Ironman and Boondock Saints.
What is one thing we don’t know about you? I’m a dork sometimes. I’ve read all seven Harry Potter books…and liked them. Don’t judge me.
What are your goals in life? And/or at CFR? I would really like to be a masked vigilanty crime fighter! Only on the weekends though. I hear those guys don’t get very much sleep.
