First Memorable CrossFit Experience
I still remember my first WOD from January 12, 2008.
It was Diane and I scaled down to a mere shadow of what the workout is supposed to be.
And it still took me over 15 minutes to complete.
Least Favorite WOD
Front Squat (any number x any number)
Favorite CrossFit Moment
Being featured in the CrossFit Belltown Member Spotlight. Meeting Greg Glassman.
Working out at a dozen other CrossFit gyms in the US & Asia… & realizing the very best is just down the street.
Why You Do CrossFit
It works! In addition to feeling great all around, I like being in good enough, well-balanced shape that I can tackle any physical activity that comes my way with ease, be it skiing, hiking, running, surfing, etc.
Favorite Cheat Meal
Mint chocolate chip ice cream (though I eat it all the time so it’s more a staple than a cheat)
Writing down the results from every workout is shockingly effective in maintaining motivation.
What Do You Do On Rest Days
Resting and trying not to think about how sore I am.
Beyond that, I like hiking in the summer and skiing in the winter, provided there is snow.
What Can’t You Live Without
Corrective eyewear (glasses or contact lenses). I would be near blind without them.
