– Been doing Crossfit for – 4 Months
When did you start Crossfit and Why? I started Crossfit about 4 months ago because I wanted to work on my overall fitness and be in shape. There’s no need for me to be able to lift a lot of weights if I cannot run a couple miles.
What is one type of movement you love? I love them all, jk. I strongly dislike Snatches and any movement that involves me squatting(Front squat, power cleaning to a squat position) They make my knees and back very nervous. I love when we bench 🙂
Any goals you have set for 2017? I did set a weight goal. When I first started, I weighed around 240-245, I would like to cut it to around 230-235. However, I am still at the same weight but I am carrying it differently now, so I might be ok with it.
Tell us one fun fact about you? I simply enjoy life, I love to laugh and live life to the fullest while I am still here. One fun fact would be is that I love water. Love to both scuba and snuba dive. I also love skydiving and going to Top Golf.
How has Crossfit helped you in sports/physical activity/Life? With such high intensity workouts, strength conditioning and cardio, Crossfit has encouraged me to change my eating habits to eating way healthier than I have ever done. I’m actually thinking about following a strict paleo diet but I have to do more research on it.
If you were left on a desert island. What one food and thing (book, music player phone etc..) would you want to be left? My food choice would be pizza. One thing I would want is…… is Jennifer Lopez a ‘thing?” Her and a PS4/TV is all I need.
