Favorite WOD and why?
I would have to say that I have always been a fan of DT because it’s challenging in all aspects of mental strength, endurance and physical strength. Every time I’ve prepared for this workout I’ve dreaded it, but once it’s all said and done and the workout is over you really feel like you’ve accomplished something. Another WOD I’ve always been a fan of is Murph. Mostly cause it is the one day a year where the crossfit community comes together on the same day to honor not only a single person, but those who have served our country past, present, and future. This is also a very good WOD to measure your progress each year.

What does CrossFit mean to you?
Crossfit is more of a lifestyle for me. It forces me to be a better person by eating healthier, working harder, and pushing myself outside of my comfort zone to improve each and every day. There may be certain exercises that are more challenging then others or movements that are more difficult, and that’s the best part… I want to succeed, so I work at improving those weaknesses. Another aspect that’s appealing (that a regular gym doesn’t offer) is that it is very dynamic and always changing. We rarely repeat the same workout twice and the workouts encompass everything from cardio, weightlifting, gymnastics, and core training. You’re really getting a full body workout each time and preparing your body for the unexpected. Furthermore, the friendships and camaraderie that is developed is unexplainable. Although the workouts are mainly individual, you really do work as a team and motivate each other to complete a common goal.
I was a D1 Football player and I have been actively weight training since 1994.
Workout Music of choice?
Loud music! I typically do not have a music preference as it becomes background noise, I’ll listen to just about anything
