How did you hear about CrossFit? I found CrossFit while discussing with a friend how conventional gyms just didn’t keep me motivated or interested in going. The suggestion was made to try CrossFit and even though I was scared to death, I sent an email to Bobby at 515 inquiring into a 7 day trial and now it’s been over a year and a half later!
How has CrossFit changed your life? CF changed my life by allowing me to learn I can overcome any obstacle if I believe in myself and work hard. It has also given me quite a few friends that are more like family.
Favorite movement: Deadlifts….because who doesn’t like deadlifts?!?
Least favorite movement: Pull ups simply because I lack so much upper body strength and they are always a good reminder of that.
Family info: I have 3 kids that are 10, 8, and 6 and keep me motivated to work hard every day to be a good example to them. I live quite a ways outside the Grimes area on a small acreage just outside Bagley but commute to Urbandale every day for work so stopping at 515 in the morning always starts my day off on a good note no matter how hard the workout was.
Favorite saying: So many favorite sayings but my most favorite would have to be “I’m not training to be skinny; I’m training to be a bad@$$!”
Favorite songs to workout to: I pretty much like anything on Bobby’s playlist but it really depends on what we’re doing. Anything with a good beat to keep me moving is a good one!
