Height: 6' 2"
Years at CFB: 2 1/2
Reason you started CF: A buddy ran with me once and said I needed to, "get my butt in CrossFit."
Reason you're still doing CF: The community is incredible. I could/do come just to hang out for hours at a time. And that community has pushed me to a complete lifestyle transformation.
Biggest positive effect of CFB on your life: It gives me the ability & confidence to do things that people say a man that is 6'2" 250 lbs shouldn't be doing.
Important goals you've reached: I've reached the point of confidence.
Future Goals: Become a coach & open my own box
Favorite WOD or WOD Element: Definitely Grace. 30 clean and jerks. It's red line the whole way. Game time baby.
Least Favorite WOD or WOD Element: pull-ups and burpees. Not made for us big people.
Favorite Music/Band: As long as it's fast paced I like it.
Bio: As a kid I was really athletic. But in middle school & high school I gained a lot of weight. I got made fun of and picked on for it. I was always the slowest guy on the team. After high school I discovered my love for running. It helped, but CrossFit is where it all changed. I went from being the slowest to the fastest, the made-fun-of to the respected. And because of the environment that this gym provides I will never stop.
