I appreciate the long, knuckle down and get through it, attack that is necessary to get it done. Most importantly I think that it humbling to be reminded that there are bigger struggles out there that some have paid the ultimate sacrifice for and I have nothing to complain about during my times of weakness in a wod.

Least Favorite WOD (and why)

My least favorite wod would have to be “Fran.” It is short but it really messes me up after the work is done. For some reason when my forearms cramp up I get pretty nauseous and Fran will get me every time.

Time CF

I started crossfit in 2009 after coming home from a deployment. I had first learned about it in 2008 and thought that it must be a cult. My first wod was “Murph” and when I saw how bad I did compared to everyone else. I decided to give it a try and never left the community.  Started coaching in 2010 and was lucky to be at one of the early day gyms. I had a lot of interaction with some of the big names in the crossfit world. I was able to learn so much about what true health and fitness is from all of those professionals.

What is CF (to you)

Crossfit to me is the best place for a great community of like minded people that support each other and encourage one another to be better in every aspect of health. I hate to think of going back to the solitary life style of the globo-gym and not having such a supportive community.

Favorite WOD music

Without a doubt my favorite wod music has got to be that girly pop on the today’s hit music stations. Seriously, it’s kind of a guilty pleasure. I try to watch good TV, read good literature, but I listen to some ridiculous music.
