…this is what I would say.
I first heard about CrossFit from from guys I was hanging out with in college.
My first CrossFit workout was “Seagram’s 7” AMRAP 7 of 7xmedball clean, 7xpushups. I got something like 6 rounds and spent the entire car ride home trying not to lose my breakfast.
If I could force one person to do Heavy Fran it would be that person who claims they “do CrossFit” at their globo gym.
My favorite workout is Nancy.
The person I would most like to WOD with is Blair Morrison. Outside, of course.
When I was growing up, I wanted to be a doctor.
When I grow up, I want to be a paleo pastry chef, haha.
The most rewarding thing about training people is seeing them successfully perform movements they never thought they would be able to do.
My favorite movie character is Tyler Durden.
The greatest challenge in coaching is remembering what it feels like to be a newbie!
The movement I find hardest to coach is clean and jerk.
The thing that makes a successful coach is an ability to connect with athletes.
My secret identity is I’m really good baker.
The thing I value most is my family.
My motto is “If it’s meant to be it will be”.
The most outrageous thing I’ve seen someone do during a WOD is nearly crush another person after dropping a loaded barbell. I also saw a guy fall backwards onto pavement from the top of 3 huge tires. Scary stuff.
The place I’d most like to visit is Italy and Bora Bora.
The CrossFit trainer/coach I most admire is my brother, Kyle.
The non-CrossFit person I most admire is actually, people I most admire; my friends who aren’t CFers (yet!)
The thing I have the most patience for is teaching CrossFit to new people.
The thing I have the least patience for is whining and/or not listening.
More than anything, I fear snakes.
My most guilty pleasure is reality TV.
A dream location for a CrossFit box would be on the Lake. Swimming WODs!
My favorite coaching cue is knees out, chest up!
I’m really looking forward to the continuing growth of The Fort.
