When did you first start training at CrossFit Hyperformance? June 2012
Briefly, tell us about your sports & fitness background: Around sports my whole life. Father was a Coach so around Football, Basketball, ect from the time I could walk. Used to go to practice and watch every day until I was old enough to start playing. Played Football, Basketball, Golf, and ran Track in High School. Mostly played intramurals in college and did some running. After college ran for a while but once the family started got out of the exercise routine for some time.
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit? Eddie Wilson had been trying to get me to come for a while but I had resisted. My son, Joshua, wanted to do something over the summer to get himself stronger and in better shape for football before his 8th grade season. I took him on a Friday to work out with Eddie and they had a great time. I sat against the wall and watched them. In the car on the way home I asked him what he thought and he said it was really fun. I told him we would get him signed up the next week if he wanted and he of course said yes. Then he asked, “Aren’t you going to sign up too?” I had no intention of signing up initially but with that question I said, “Of course.” I am so glad he got me started.
Favorite Workout/Least Favorite Workout: Favorite-Whatever is coming up the next day. We are lucky to be able to do this./Least favorite-Anything that has heavy snatches.
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit or CFHP moments: Love it when someone in the class I am in does something they have not done before. The energy created by that usually makes someone else hit a PR too.
Share with us something unlikely that you're afraid of: Not sure about unlikely but don’t like to fail or be wrong
Share with us something you're strong at: Pretty average at lots of things. Not sure I’m really strong at any one thing but am usually pretty cool under pressure.
How violently do you have to fight the urge to scream when you hear the ice cream truck coming? Ice cream is great (the truck actually does come through our neighborhood) but I am more of a cookie guy.
What book has impacted you the most so far in your lifetime: There are books that have affected different aspects of my life but one that covers everything is the Bible.
Favorite Movie to watch with a group of people: Love any sports movies or something with an underdog.
Favorite Song for driving in the car during Summer: Whatever Josh and Jake put on.
What do you most enjoy doing on Sundays? Spending time with my family
