1. How did you get started at CrossFit?
I started Crossfit 3 and 1/2 years ago at A1A and got addicted very quickly.
2. What made you want to start CrossFit? Was it scary when you started?
I had friends that were already working out at A1A and they were always saying i should try it…but i was never into sports…so i never gave them much attention. On NYE of 2013/14 we were very drunk and i said i would give a try. It took me another 6 months but finally I gave a shot. I remember my first class when Chad was saying all those weird names of stuff i should do and i had no clue what he was talking about…but i stayed firm and asked him a ton of times all i wanted to know. I also remember how difficult it was to get a barbell out of the rack and how a 400m run seemed almost impossible…and of course all the soreness at night when going to bed. But…i was 37 years old and wanted to get in shape before my 40’s…and i did it. After working out twice a week i went to 3 times then 4, 5 and when my family is travelling during summer it’s usually 6 times a week.
3. What is your biggest accomplishment since starting CrossFit?
Not only my body changed but my determination on doing things until they are finished. Those are the 2 main accomplishments.
4. What do you want to achieve with CrossFit?
What i really want to achieve is getting my double unders!!!!!!
5. Tell us something we probably don’t know about you.
I am a travel agent that loves to travel with my family and organize trips for other people too.
6. How do you eat?
My whole adult life pre Crossfit was based on beer…i mean…lots of beers. After Crossfit it is based on Tequila and Whisky because beer gives me headache and belly. I eat lots of meat, almost no bread and pasta and a piece of chocolate every night.
