Crossfitting since? August 8, 2013
A little about yourself:
I’m a Software Engineer at Rockwell Automation at the downtown Milwaukee headquarters. I am a big golfer and that was the extent of my sport background before Crossfit. My fitness background before starting Crossfit was going to the gym on Marquette University’s campus and having a good old fashioned bodybuilding style workout.
Another fun tid-bit about me is that I’ve had two knee surgeries. My left knee had a tendency to dislocate any time I would shift my weight drastically my knee would either partially or wholly dislocate. The first surgery I had worked for a few years until I blew it out in gym class. The second knee surgery was five years ago, is doing great, and after all that I’ve done with Crossfit I think this surgery is here to stay!
How did you get into crossfit? I had been looking into it for about six months before starting and just decided to give it a try. My reasoning was the following question, “What’s the worst that could happen?”
What is your favorite WOD or movement? I don’t have a favorite WOD. But anything with Cleans, Handstand Pushups, or Ring Dips is a WOD I would like.
Least favorite? Double Unders and Wall-balls.
How has crossfit changed you outside of the gym? I am now the “grandpa” of my friend group going to bed before 10 most nights. But to me I’d rather get my rest and recover fully after a rough workout.
What makes Badger crossfit unique? The community. Everyone is so welcoming and friendly. Whether it’s a 6AM class or a 6PM class everyone is cheerful and talkative.
What time do you WOD? 6AM
What advice do you have for people first getting started? Don’t be afraid! Everyone was in your shoes before they started. Just show up to your workouts and the rest will fall into place. You will love BCF!
