Tell us a little about yourself, what do you do for a living, members of your family, do you have any pets (include anything else you see fit!)?
I am from West Virginia where my parents still live and I have a younger brother who lives in Florida. I have been married to my wonderful wife Kaitlyn for a little over 5 years and we have 4 cats! I am the supervisor for the inspection department at Marmen Energy where we build wind tower pylons.
How & when did you get introduced to Crossfit and what made you want to continue coming?
My wife started going over 3 years ago. She fell in love with it and really wanted me to join. Sadly my schedule just didn’t line up. My hours at work recently changed which allowed me to join her at 6am. I enjoy the variety and all of the new things there are to learn.
When do you normally workout (what class) and what do you like about that group?
Kaitlyn and I are both very loyal to 6am. I like the positive attitudes and everyone’s eagerness to improve.
What are some of the biggest improvements you’ve made since starting and do you have any new goals?
Confidence. Feeling more comfortable doing uncomfortable movements. Biggest goal is to improve my form, mainly on my olympic lifts.
What advice would you give to someone who is brand new to Crossfit?
Just do it!
If you had to listen to the same genre of music every workout, what would it be?
1990’s and 2000’s hard rock.
For the rest of your life, you are only allowed to get the same 10 items at the grocery store, what would they be?
Coors light, soft pretzels, strawberries, pepperoni rolls, strip steak, bacon, eggs, maple syrup, biscuits, and pecan pie.
What’s your favorite “free time” activity?
And finally, What do you love most about Phos?
