1.Were you active prior to Cross Fit?
Yes, I played baseball all throughout high school and once I started college at UNCC I joined the ROTC program so it kept me very active.
2. When did you first start doing Cross Fit?
I first started doing Crossfit a few months ago when a buddy of mine from high school got me into it.
3. What were your thoughts after your first workout?
Going into the workout I thought it was going to be pretty challenging but I thought I was in shape and figured I could keep up. After doing 800 meter runs and 150 wall balls I was DEAD and realized I was not as fit as I thought I was.
4. What do you enjoy the most about Cross Fit?
I would say I have two things that I enjoy most about Crossfit and they would be the community and how every workout is different and extremely challenging.
5. What were your goals when you first started?
My goals coming into Crossfit were to just become more physically fit and be able to push myself further mentally than I ever have before.
What are they now?
My goals now are still the same as before but I have become more determined since I joined and I want to perfect my form on everything I can and hopefully one day compete with the best of the best.
6. What is your favorite Cross Fit movement?
My favorite Crossfit movement would have to be the clean because throughout high school it was my weakest movement and I love to focus on my weaknesses so now it is one of my better movements.
7. What is your least favorite movement?
OVERHEAD SQUAT, MOBILITY, MOBILITY, MOBILITY…
8. What kind of nutrition plan do you follow and has that changed since you started Cross Fit?
I do not follow a nutrition plan right now but Crossfit has changed my eating habits a lot since I have started and I am trying to focus on the paleo diet as much as I can.
9. Talk about your results from doing Cross Fit?
My results from Crossfit are better than I ever thought they would be. Now that I am back doing PT with ROTC I have realized how much more in shape I am than I ever was before and I am becoming stronger every day and working little by little on every movement.
