Member Of The Month – July 2017

Member Of The Month July 2017Tell us a little bit about  yourself? (family, where you are from, etc)

I’m the oldest of three and their only son. I was born in Chicago and raised in Bolingbrook, IL. I’ve worked at Hooters for the last 24 years-15 yrs as a kitchen coordinator and been a sailor in the Reserves the last 16 yrs. I’m hoping to go back to school in the Fall and finally finish pursuing a degree in Physical Therapy, most likely as a PTA . I’m kind of an introvert even though I do love people, weird huh? 

How did you get started in CrossFit?

My first taste of Crossfit was with a Navy dive unit I drilled with a few years ago. A couple of the chiefs were pretty active with it, so when they weren’t prepping for evolutions or inspections, it was our group PT. Sadly, that became short lived with work tempo, etc. 

What are your favorite movements to do during a wod?

I’m still working on mobility and smoothly connecting movements, so it’s hard to choose. I do like deadlifts and leaving “sweat angels” at the end of a WOD…

What do you love best about CrossFit?

I love the energy and support we give each other as we’re working our asses off! And leaving “sweat angels” on the deck at the end of a WOD.

When you’re not in the gym busting your butt, what is your favorite things to do?

Sadly I don’t do much else. Hanging out with my son Tyler is my life. 

Tell us something that most people don’t know about yourself?

I’m a little bit more vocal/assertive when I’m at work… otherwise, quiet as a church mouse lol
