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

A: My cousins: Jenny Tommy Courtney and Aaron.

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

A: First impressions after power cleans with Heather was this is going to hurt in the morning. For the most part I still feel the same way. 

Q: What was your first “bright spot”? 

A: My first week. I know everyone says this but the people! Everyone is so nice and encouraging. Seems like there’s always so much tension and diversity within our country (politics, religion, drug epidemic, covid. Etc….) and the gym has none. Not once have I heard the names trump or Biden in the gym and it’s soo refreshing! 

Q: What’s your favorite CrossFit CTRL memory?” 

A: When Tommy laid on the ground yelping as if he was hurt and everyone was checking on him then he replied “I can feel my ribs!” Hilarious!

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

A: I love the workouts! Always something new that pushes you in a different way each time. What keeps me coming back is, I can feel improvements in my energy levels and my attitude. 

Q: Who inspires you? 

A: A lot of people! My parents, my wife, my daughter, friends (inside and outside the gym), co workers. 

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

A: Owner of Jay Puccio State Farm in Fairmont. Member of Fairmont State University Board of Governors and WV State Farm PAC Board. I wouldn’t call fly fishing a hobby but more a passion. 

Q: What would you say to someone you love to encourage them to try CrossFit CTRL? 
A: Give it a shot. It’s a lot of fun!
