TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF, YOUR HOBBIES, GOALS AND LIFE ASPIRATIONS...WHY DID YOU START CROSSFITTING OR FITNESSING?
I am a proud father of 4, and am always striving to lead my Family by the example I set. My hobbies are Golf and Tennis, but those have taken to the backburner as my kids activities increase. I enjoy watching my kids and the activities they participate in. I am constantly in awe of their hard-work and determination! My aspirations are to positively impact those that I am surrounded by and to raise respectful and contributing members to our society. I started Crossfit to challenge myself and get in shape (and for that killer six-pack ab look!!).
WHAT DO YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT WORKING OUT AND WHY DO YOU CONTINUE?
I love the community, support, and the music! I go to the 5 am class and I always question myself when I am waking up, like WTF am I trying to prove? But when I show up, I see the familiar faces and friendly smiles, reminding me exactly why I am there. I continue my Crossfit journey as I am always looking to take myself to the next level. I am by no means good at the movements, so I try to perfect those and maybe learn a new one every so often!
HOW HAS YOUR FITNESS OR YOUR ACTIVE LIFE IMPACTED YOUR LIFE BEYOND INSIDE OF THE GYM?
When I workout, I just feel better. I feel better about myself and that impacts my mood for the rest of the day. It's a great kickstart to the day and although the atmosphere is loud and there is a lot going on, it is my one hour of the day that I have to myself. In essence, Crossfit is my peaceful time and serves as a stress reliever to my life.
IF YOU NEVER HAD TO DO ONE EXERCISE MOVEMENT AGAIN, WHAT WOULD IT BE?
There are multiple movements that I just am not good at, pretty much anything that involves the front rack position. But the one movement I despise the most is DB Thrusters. They always get me!!
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT BEING PART OF OUR FITFAM?
I love the camaraderie, hustle, motivation, positive influence, and the friendliness of my LA563 Box. It's just HOME!
