When did you get started with us?

April 2014

 

What improvements have you made?

I came in at 303lbs, and being medically treated for High Blood Pressure and High Cholesterol.  I could bend over and tie my shoes, just not at the same time.  Since joining BFCF I have lost fat, and gained muscle and mobility.  I am no longer on any medications and I lead an active lifestyle.  Although I am turning 50 this year, I am in better shape than I was at 40 and I have a confidence in myself that I was lacking when I walked into BVCF.

 

What's your favorite movement?

The easy answers are rowing, sit-ups, deadlifts, but the more complicated answers are the movements that have been difficult, but I have improved on.  Kipping Pullups, Double Unders, Rope Climbs and even the dreaded Burpees.

 

Favorite thing about Blue Valley CrossFit? 

It's the coaches and athletes, the focus on individual fitness, the facilities and the programming.

 

Favorite cheat food? 

Pizza.  period.

 

Will you do the Whole Life Challenge?  What's so great about it? 

I am doing the Whole Life Challenge again, and I think this is the third time.  My biggest fitness hurdle is being deliberate with my nutrition.  The Whole Life Challenge requires that I plan out my meals and spells out the do's and don'ts according to the level you chose to participate in.

 

If you had a superpower what would it be and why? 

To be able to run like The Flash.  Why?  Have you seen me run?
