This week we check in with one of our Weightlifting rockstars: "Big" Mike Quesada — Crossfitting since: Started On-Ramp on 9/26/2011 — A little about yourself: Manager of expectations by day. Crusher of goals by night. Lifter of heavy things. Motivator. Slight OCD complex — How did you get into CrossFit? I got really fat and unmotivated. I could see the path I was heading down and knew I needed help. I was looking for a personal trainer and stumbled across this crazy CrossFit thing. There just happened to be a CrossFit box near where I lived at the time and the owner of the gym posted lots of pictures on social media. When I saw the ratio of cute girls to meatheads I knew that place could work for me — How has CrossFit changed you outside the gym? Where do I begin??? CrossFit changed my entire life. I never was an athlete growing up like most of the other people in the gym. I was totally unfamiliar with the athlete mentality of winning but it must've been inside of me the whole time because once I started there was no stopping me. I've transformed my life because of it. CrossFit helped me realize that I am the only one who's really in charge of my health and if I want to make changes I have to do something about it — What makes Badger CrossFit unique? I've been a member of two other CrossFit gyms in the area and have visited many more. While the entire CrossFit community is awesome – this place is spectacular. The coaches and the athletes are like family to me. The facility is huge and very well maintained. Tyler might have the same slight OCD complex that I have and it's one of the things I love about this place — Advice for people just getting started: Make friends. Talk to people. Go to gym events. Ask questions. Engage in the community. It's THE BEST part about CrossFit. I've made so many friends through CrossFit. The people are what makes CrossFit unique #membermonday #motivation #health #badgerbuilt #badgercrossfit #fitness #community #results #gains @big_miiiike
