Today we catch up with one of our afternoon rockstars, Paul Nemcek — Crossfitting since: September 2012 — A little about yourself: Originally from the home of your 2016 World Series Champion Chicago Cubs (along with some other sports teams we won’t talk about right now), and eventually grew up in Cambridge, WI (near Madison). After graduating from pharmacy school in Madison, I moved out to Wauwatosa where I have been for 11 years now. Single… and… I like long walks on the beach — How did you get into Crossfit? I first heard about Crossfit in 2011 and wanted to start immediately. I found Badger Crossfit at that time but the limited class times didn’t work with my schedule. Fortunately, I found out through fellow member Jeff Schmidt that more classes were added and I joined Badger in September of 2012 — How has Crossfit changed you outside the gym? Of course there are physical benefits I’ve gained from being at this gym, but for me the greatest changes are how well coming to Badger has kept me sane and focused when dealing with stressors of work and life. Plus, I’ve met some great people along the way that have become friends outside of Badger’s walls — What makes Badger Crossfit unique: Badger has a great community. You look forward to going to the gym not just to work out but to see (and hopefully beat) your friends as well — Advice for people just getting started: Be coachable, and don’t stop looking to get coached or for pointers. You can always improve and learn from others. Also, track your progress; it’s too easy to not notice changes day-to-day, so looking back can be very rewarding and motivating #membermonday #motivation #monday #badgerbuilt #badgercrossfit #crossfit #hardwork #dedication @pjnemcek
