<p style=”text-align: center;”><strong>ATHLETE OF THE WEEK</strong></p> <p style=”text-align: center;”><strong>Justin Brink</strong></p> <p><strong><br> </strong></p> <p style=”text-align: center;”><img src=”/Websites/crossfitcastlerock/images/jtbrink.jpg” style=”text-align: center;”> </p> <p>If you don’t see Justin at the gym very often, it’s because he sneaks in a wod generally during open gym time. When he’s not with us, he is generally busy working on one of us Crossfitter’s and making it so we can all keep doing what we love. It is almost certain you have heard his name around the gym. Justin has given up countless hours of his time supporting us at the Battle at the Rock and traveling with our Regional competitors making sure they are in top shape for local and regional competitions. We bring Justin some crazy symptoms and he loves to solve our puzzles of Crossfit weirdness.  We adore him and believe he is the best Physical Therapist this side the Mississippi 😉 </p> <p><strong>When did you start crossfitting</strong></p> <p>About 2 days after Julie Sneed and a couple of her friends walked into my clinic. “Let me get this right, you<br> hurt your back getting a PR on your snatch, and hurt your shoulder stringing your first 2 muscle ups??? “<br> What is this crazy chick talking about? So in effort to more effectively treat her, my assistant and I pulled<br> the workouts from the Gym’s website and did them at the rec center for about 6 months. Pull ups off the<br> basketball goals, box jumps off the racquetball benches…they loved us there. I officially started the Gym<br> August 2012. I am still thankful to this day she walked into my clinic.</p> <p><strong>Favorite wod </strong>Bull-Nuts</p> <p><strong>Least favorite wod </strong>Karen and any workout with thrusters.</p> <p><strong>Favortie lift </strong>Overhead Squats</p> <p><strong>Least favorite lift </strong>Thrusters and Front Squats</p> <p><strong>Tell us bit about yourself (family, job, sports, military interest etc..)</strong></p> <p>I have been a practicing Physical Therapist for 9 years and I am one of the lucky ones that truly loves what he<br> does. This career chose me, and it is exciting to get out of bed each day and try to solve the mysteries of the<br> human body. I have a beautiful wife who is a successful logistics broker, which is what brought our family to<br> Colorado 4 years ago (No, I cannot get Katy to step foot in a Crossfit gym). We have an amazing 5 year old<br> daughter who just started 1st grade. Originally from South Dakota, I love hunting and fishing because that’s about all there is to do there. As a family we love to fish and camp.</p> <p><strong>What were you doing before CrossFit</strong></p> <p>Not much. A few curls for the girls and finding every excuse not to have to run.</p> <p><strong>What were your thoughts after your first crossfit workout</strong></p> <p>Julie Sneed is out of her mind, and I am never going to be able to fix her! To be honest that same thought<br> crosses my mind even today.</p> <p><strong>What were your goals when joining crossfit</strong></p> <p>Have fun, and don’t get hurt.</p> <p><strong>Have you achieved any of those goals</strong></p> <p>I have not injured myself in two years of Crossfit, and I have fun everytime I walk into the gym.</p> <p><strong>Has crossfit affected your life outside the gym</strong></p> <p>Absolutely! I enjoy hanging out with my Crossfit family outside the gym as much as in the gym. Whether I<br> see them in the clinic, corn hole at the Mroz’s, or spending 4 days with the Clydesdales in Salt Lake City in<br> Max’s camper, it’s all fun. You won’t meet a better group of people than you will at the Gym.</p> <p><strong>Any advice for people getting started</strong></p> <p>As a PT, go slow and Rx is overrated. As a Crossfitter, find a partner that is just started also, and suffer<br> through the first month together. After you get through the first month, you will be hooked and will not want<br> to quit.</p> <p><strong>Some of your recent accomplishments</strong></p> <p>Most of my accomplishments are professional in which I am just finishing up an 18 month fellowship for<br> Orthopedic Manual Therapy. On the Crossfit side, I did string 20 handstand push ups together recently. But<br> I don’t think that is an accomplishment unless you can do straight set 21 for “Diane”.</p> <p> </p> <p>Thank you to Fran and Spencer and all the other trainers who have helped over the last two years. A special<br> thanks to Julie who truly did introduce me to Crossfit. I absolutely love being a Physical Therapist and<br> most days love Crossfit, thanks to all of you I get to combine the two daily!</p> <p><strong><img src=”/Websites/crossfitcastlerock/images/FNFs.jpg” style=””><br> </strong></p> <p><strong><span style=”font-size: 18px; color: rgb(112, 48, 160);”><span style=”color: rgb(227, 108, 9);”>FRIDAY NIGHT FIGHTS IS TONIGHT!</span></span><span style=”color: rgb(227, 108, 9);”><br> <span style=”color: rgb(227, 108, 9);”> 6:30 PM ….come watch some awesome match ups!  </span><br> After party 8 PM is</span><span style=”color: rgb(227, 108, 9);”>h at Belinda’s house!  See board for address or text her if you need it or get lost at 303-918-2714.  BYOB.  She will have some chili and snacks but feel free to bring something to eat. <span style=”color: rgb(0, 176, 80);”>(Adults Only!)</span></span></strong></p> <p><strong><span style=”font-size: 18px; color: rgb(112, 48, 160);”><span style=”font-size: 18px;”>HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY MROZ! </span></span></strong></p> <p><strong>WOD</strong></p> <p>”Helen”</p> <p>3 Rounds:</p> <p>400 meter run<br> 21 Kb Swings 53/35#<br> 12 pull ups</p> <p><strong><br> </strong></p> <p><strong>RX</strong></p> <p>Pat 937<br> Meagan 1421<br> Chandra 1503<br> Jeremy 1007<br> Terra <strong>#45</strong> 1246 <br> Belinda 1216<br> Sandy 1425<br> Big Ben 1058<br> Josh 1234<br> Steve C 1326<br> Jeff 1509<br> Tony 1029<br> Brooke 1414<br> Gary 1139<br> Leslie 1315<br> Curt 911<br> Cory ALT<br> Bill F 1006<br> Campbell 1055<br> Aimee 645<br> Marion 1211<br> Jon S 1224<br> Jim 1341<br> Ray 1450<br> Hollywood 1359<br> Garrett 1448<br> Grace 1509<br> Kapitan 1052<br> Mark 1538<br> Ryan F 1337<br> Blake 10:43<br> Wills 8:47<br> Justin B 11:15<br> Rob 13:49<br> Brett 10:27<br> J Lay 13:27<br> Steve 9:46<br> Buckland 12:46<br> Nate 14:15<br> Joe 12:22<br> <br> </p> <p> </p> <p><strong>MOD</strong></p> <p>Lord 1448<br> Richard 1654<br> Dana *Welcome* 1510<br> Andrea 1517<br> Tammy 1334<br> Janet 1512<br> Joni 1533<br> Michelle 1507<br> Sue 1414<br> John 1359<br> Gretchen 1307<br> Marie 1313<br> Karen 1316<br> DeEtte 1423<br> Melanie 1330<br> Audrey 1527<br> Lesa 1423<br> Crusher 1338<br> Sabina 1530<br> Liana 1428<br> Nunley 1121<br> Megan 1759<br> Ron 1905<br> Brynn 1829<br> Carolina 1413 <br> Lucky Charms 11:47<br> Sp.
