Start date at CrossFit Reviver? June 2013

Athletic background? An ensemble of childhood stereotypes: T-Ball, Soccer, Karate – followed by a short run at racquetball in my college years, which more or less equated to running into walls at a moderately past face.

Favorite and least favorite WOD / movement? Love me some backsquats. Inch worms can burn in hell, along with that modified Bear Crawl thing, aka Bear Poop/Table Top of Torture.

Greatest accomplishment? Personal, professional and fitness related? Personal: My wife and son.
Professional: Honing my skill set so I can go to work every day and not hate be miserable doing what I am doing. Fitness: Making the decision to try CrossFit.

Has CFR made you better? If so, how? CFR has provided a community and routine that doesn’t have me dreading a workout. It’s exciting to see progress and feel better every day over the last. Not only are we talking about exercise, but fueling your body for performance and tackling the demons that hinder progress. There is a route to every goal, sometimes the path isn’t as clear to you as it can be to others. CFR helped me find that path and constantly push me in the right direction when I start to wander.

What are your hobbies? Visiting and exploring National Parks/United States.

Top 5 favorite movies? Fight Club, LOTR & The Hobbit Saga.

What is one thing we don’t know about you? I have an impressive collection of lapel pins from the places I have visited. I am also a living version of Wikipedia and often spend many restless hours researching irrelevant topics that serve no purpose what-so-ever.

What are your goals in life? Personal, professional and fitness related? Personal: Live my life to the fullest and not waste the short time we have on this planet – Experience as much that I can. Professional: The perfect balance of success and happiness.Fitness: To keep stripping off the pounds until I no longer can consider physical ability a deterrent of my personal goals…and a muscle up would be pretty sweet too.
