How did you learn about CrossFit Warehouse? I was trolling cfwarehouse IG page since the pandemic. I was drawn by the fitness commitment that CFW showed during the pandemic.
How has CrossFit Warehouse changed your life, lifestyle, and level of fitness? OH MY GOD where do I start. The coaches at CFW are AMAZING. They ensure you are doing the movements correctly, they provide honest feedback for your awareness. They encourage you to do the hard things but in a progressive fashion. I love how CFW loves their athletes no matter their age or fitness level and continues to mold the athletes into better versions of themselves. I still workout a couple days a week at a global gym but its nothing like Crossfit Warehouse.
List short/long term goals you would like to accomplish through CrossFit Warehouse: I continue to develop my skills. In the short term my goal is to remain consistent with the CF workouts. My long term goals is to continue to progress in movements that I have not mastered. The list is long 🙂
What do you like most about CrossFit Warehouse? I love the community. It’s very diverse. Everyone is very welcoming. Additionally, members are always very supportive of one another. I have formed some very good friendships with some of the CFW members that I know will just continue to grow.
What is your favorite CrossFit movement? Power cleans and handstand pushups,
What is your least favorite CrossFit movement? Burpees and overhead squats
What movements would make up your Favorite WOD? Deadlifts, snatches and power cleans. In that order 🙂
What are you currently doing to try to improve your diet? I have been 16/8 Intermittent fasting over the last year. Dialing in my macros
Favorite movie: Too many to list. My favorite movie of all time would probably be “Good Will Hunting”
Favorite music artist/band: I’m pretty eclectic with music. I listen to it all. No favorite band in particular. Favorite artist right now might be Jellyroll.
Favorite song to work out to: Anything Techno, hiphop or rap. Is there anything better or more motivating? 🙂
Achievements you’d like to highlight within your life: Started a IT consulting firm “Topology Networks” let me know if you need any cybersecurity work done.
List a few things we don’t know about you: I live in Oak Forest. I have 4 kids. 3 boys and 1 princess. Married for almost 18 years. Wife says I workout enough for the both of us.
In 10 words or less, what does CF mean to you? Crossfit to me means life. Constantly varied workouts that challenge me both mentally and physically.
What advice would you give to someone looking to join Crossfit for the first time? While it may seem intimidating its actually one of the best forms of fitness you could ever do for yourself. It’s going to be hard, but it will get easier. its going to hurt, but you’ll recover. it’s going to challenge you both physically and mentally, but you will be so much stronger. While that may seem like a lot to overcome in retrospect it will develop skills in both areas that will keep you challenging yourself beyond your years. Yep, sign me up for that!!!!
