When did you start CrossFitting?

January, 2015

When did you first start training at Big Horn CrossFit?

January, 2015

Favorite WOD (workout):

MURPH

Least favorite WOD (workout):

Not sure I have one. I Like seing what I can do even doing miserable exercises.

Tell us about your sports and fitness background:

I only ever played sports with friends. I pretty much kept to biking, hiking, backpacking, running, and the gym on and off.

How did you first get exposed to CrossFit?

My beautiful wife got me to come to some classes with her, and to eventually join.

Take us back to your first WOD (workout):

The First WOD I remember was a 50,50,50 workout with everything you wouldn’t want to do in row. I could barely breathe, loads of fun.

What sort of changes have you seen in your body?

I can tell I have definitely gotten stronger, and a little less squishy, overall pretty happy with everything CrossFit has helped me achieve.

What sort of changes have you seen in your life?

I have found a healthy way for my wife and I to compete with each other, and I almost never skip workouts anymore, and I am  generally less late to everything.

Favorite Big Horn CrossFit moments:

The end of an absolutely nuts workout when the first people to finish can barely breathe and they are cheering on the people still trying to finish; it’s a great community to be a part of.

Advice for people getting started?

Keep with it and don’t worry about the weight, everything comes in time. Once the coaches get you through form training, your progress will amaze you.

Hobbies, interests outside of CrossFit?

Beer, video games, family, food, fish, anything outdoors, and the occasional book & home renovation are always fun.
