What made you choose CrossFit True?
The great personal reviews & proximity.
How long have you been training with us?
I started in May of 2015. I took a break for personal issues & started back with more consistency in January 2016
What has been your proudest moment in the past 90 days?
I hit a few double unders recently.
What fills up your time outside the gym (i.e. work, family, hobbies, etc)
Day job- desk jockey at Prudential in Shelton
Our 2 boys Jackson & baby Henry keep us nice & busy with any free time we have, that usually means living on a baseball diamond or a basketball court. When I get time, I’m either cooking, going for a run or sleeping.
How is your nutrition?
As clean as possible! However if there are any cake or cookies around, it’s all over, clean goes out the window.
What are your 3 favorite movements/exercises?
And believe it or not, I have a love hate relationship with burpees
What is your favorite style workout? ( AMRAP, EMOM, Rounds for Time, etc)
I think the official term is a ladder (21-15-9)
What music gets you pumped up?
Eminem & 90s hip hop & Eminem
How have you changed physically and mentally since you started training at CrossFit True?
Although I sit at a desk all day, I stand straighter & have better posture because things are getting stronger. I also have much more flexibility than I ever did! Mentally I have a much more positive outlook.
What are you current goals?
A set of 10 double unders
And get my arms/shoulders strong enough for a pull up
How have you goals evolved since you started training with us?
My initial goal was don’t get hurt! I was a pretty consistent runner too. I needed to create variety in my workouts. Now it’s how do I push myself closer to achieve a new PR or get closer to executing a movement with which I still struggle.
What has been the biggest surprise since joining CrossFit True?
The addictiveness of success is incredible! It’s not just the personal successes but being able to celebrate the successes of others. It’s a great environment.
What can you do now that you weren’t able to do before you started training with us?
Proper push ups
Any form of a clean
I’m sure there’s more because I certainly surprise myself every WOD
Anything else you would like to say?
I don’t know if I can say anything that hasn’t already been said. The coaches are phenomenal in their knowledge & their ability to pivot to support you personally. The support of the other members helps motivation & your success. This place is awesome!!
