Q: What brought you to CrossFit in the first place? 

A: Having the workouts already planned out for me. Was tired of trying to go to a regular gym and figure out what what my workout was. With CrossFit all I have to do is just show up.

Q: What was your first impression? How has that changed? 

A: At first I thought I was out of my league but I kept at it with the scaling options and now I see myself continuously getting better with the different types of workout movements. 

Q: What was your first “bright spot”? 

A: When my daughter said to me that my face is looking thinner. 

Q: What’s your favorite CrossFit CTRL memory?

A: First time I made the committed club.

Q: What do you love most about CrossFit CTRL? What keeps you coming back each month? 

The people. Having a fun and motivating environment is a HUGE factor in staying motivated and coming back. It doesn’t matter where you are on the fitness spectrum, everyone is positive and motivating and wants you to succeed. 

Q: Who inspires you? 

A: Everyone in the gym that I see showing up on a regular basis. If they can do it so can I.

Q: What is your current occupation? What are some hobbies, clubs, groups or activities you participate in?

A: Cyber Network Modeler, which is part of a cybersecurity assessment team. In my free time I like to game it up with my kids either on the Xbox or the computer. 

Q: What would you say to someone you love to encourage them to try CrossFit CTRL? 

A: All you have to do is just show up and let the coaches do the rest.
