I didn’t think I had a choice (Spencer). I think that we as humans have spent thousands of years being active and the only way to be complete as a person is to STAY active. It clears your mind, gives you perspective and you can have a laugh (when the workout is over).<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ id=”yui_3_16_0_1_1423807479766_7745″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> How have you been able to stay so consistent?<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>Well, the first 6 months I think I went a little crazy and was injured twice. Since then I’ve listened to my body and “kept it simple”. Just come in… if everything feels right and an excellent performance happens, great. If not it’s no big deal. Being present is really all you can aim for if you’re in it for the long haul. I now do Yoga once a week as a part of the XFit membership and it’s a great way to stay injury free and really helps you sleep better.<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ id=”yui_3_16_0_1_1423807479766_7746″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> Favorite wod<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>BEAR Complex<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> </div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ id=”yui_3_16_0_1_1423807479766_7747″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ id=”yui_3_16_0_1_1423807479766_7749″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ id=”yui_3_16_0_1_1423807479766_7748″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>Least favorite wod<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>Anything with a ton of weight<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>Favorite lift</span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”>BEAR Complex<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> </div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> Least favorite lift<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>OHS<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> Tell us bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military interest etc..)<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>I’m not from CO and to be honest I’m not from anywhere. I’ve lived on both coasts and in Europe for most of my life with my wife Petra (of 25 years) and two children. We are easily bored and love to see new places and try new things (nothing weird though). I own a web agency (Mercury 13 Design, where Fortune 500 companies come for a facelift) and work all the time but don’t really have to answer to anyone which I guess is a good thing. I was a medic in the Army during Desert Storm and really loved my time in the Army so I guess I’ve got some problems I need to work through with my therapist. <br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>What were you doing before CrossFit<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>Running, P90X, Competing with whomever was next to me at the gym (little creepy, I know). <br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>What were your thoughts after your first Crossfit workout<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>What is wrong with these people?<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>What were your goals when joining Crossfit<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>To someday perform EVERY XFit movement (muscle ups are the only one on my “to do” list)<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″> <div class=”yiv8056933276″></div> </div> <span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”><br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span></div> <div class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”font-size: 13px; font-family: ‘Helvetica Neue’, ‘Segoe UI’, Helvetica, Arial, ‘Lucida Grande’, sans-serif;”><span class=”yiv8056933276″ style=”color: rgb(181, 26, 0);”>Have you achieved any of those goals<br clear=”none” class=”yiv8056933276″> </span>All but one.
