Today we catch up with another dedicated Med Student, Brian Thorne — Crossfitting since: 2014/2015ish — A little about yourself: I'm from New Jersey and I'm finishing up my 3rd year of medical school, over at Medical College of Wisconsin and I'll be applying for residency soon. Despite that, I'm still not 100% sure on what type of doctor I want to be when I grow up. I'm also in the Navy, but I joined mostly just because they offer a pretty sweet all-expenses-paid travel plan once I graduate from school — I'm a former fat kid, so I take exercising somewhat seriously. I played sports my whole life, and baseball and football through college so I can get competitive, and Crossfit is a good outlet for that — When I'm not busy with school, I like hiking, hunting, fishing and generally being outside. I took up homebrewing a few years ago too. I also like cooking French dishes, long walks on the beach and cozy nights by the……Oh, sorry, what were we talking about again? — How did you get into CrossFit? I had tried another box in Milwaukee, but didn't stay there very long – maybe 2 months. Then one day at school, this California bro with a really sweet haircut started talking about exercising and the next thing I knew, he'd talked me into giving Badger a 1-week try. Thanks Nick Placone. That was about 2 weeks before the Open in 2015 and I haven't left yet, so I guess it's ok #badgerbuilt #membermonday #motivation #badgercrossfit #fitfam #medstudent #fitness #wauwatosa #wisconsin
