 dp before dp after

 When did you start Crossfitting: I started CrossFit in 2010

Favorite wod: Murph because you feel so accomplished when you finish it.

Least favorite wod: Karen because wall balls suck when your short

Favorite lift overhead squat

Least favorite lift front squat

Tell us bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military interest etc..) I have three teenagers and a beautiful wife (who just started CrossFit) I work for the Denver Museum of Nature & Science as their Technical Operations Manager. I was in the Navy 20 years ago where i was a Navigator on a submarine.

What were you doing before CrossFit: 15 year all American couch potato

What were your thoughts after your first Crossfit workout: The trainer was a petite woman who was in amazing shape and she came over while i was dying on a rower and told me that if i needed to puke that i needed to do it outside and then get back in for the workout! I though I was going to die!

What were your goals when joining Crossfit: I was about 80 pounds over weight and my goal was to loose it.

Have you achieved any of those goals: YES!!

Has Crossfit affected your life outside the gym: CrossFit is like a family and i have made a lot of friends from the gym. It is one of my favorite social outlets.

Any advice for people getting started: Stick with it!! You didnt get fat in a day or a week or a month, it took a while. your journey back will take some time to but the goal is reachable and CrossFit is the express train to get you there.

Some of your recent accomplishments: As of this writing i am standing at 150th in the region for the 40-44 masters division in the CrossFit games. When i started CrossFit i couldn’t do 1 pull up or run a 400!!
