This week we check in with a 5:30pm regular, Bob Martin! — CrossFitting since: 2016 at Badger but high-intensity bootcamp since 2012. — About me: I'm semi retired, running a small body shop and enjoy old cars, sports, fishing in Wisconsin and working out with my lovely wife, Dorothy. — How did you get into Function: Coach Tina (our daughter) got Dorothy and I into working out and it's just become something we enjoy doing together 2 to 3 times a week. — How has Function changed you outside the gym: Function/working out has helped me in my work life as my job is somewhat physical and I'm able to work harder and "stay at it" longer.  Being one of the oldest people in the gym, I can tell you that I used to have aches and pains that just didn't seem to go away.  I still have aches and pains but now I know where they come from! They are from working out, they do go away, and they've made me a stronger and healthier person! — What makes BCF unique: I like the structure of Badger as it's great to be told what to do, how to lift and move properly and what is expected.  If I were left to make my own workouts I'm sure that they would be very basic and without many reps or sets.  Working out with others and teaming up with others also challenges you to not get sloppy and I believe you can perform better and do more with a support group around you. — Advice for people just getting started: It most likely took you a very long time to get the body you have now.  It is not going to take 2 weeks to change that. A day or two after your first workout, you will be sore but the best thing you can do is just go right back in there and keep at it — you can do it! Set certain days and times aside to make CrossFit a part of your life, enjoy the journey and meet some really nice instructors and fellow workout folks. : : : #membermonday #monday #motivation #progress #fitness #community #results #badgercrossfit #badgerbuilt #crossfit #inspiration #hardwork #fitfam #wauwatosa #wisconsin
