My roommates in college came back from summer break, made me do murph and I havent looked back since.
What changes have you seen in your health and fitness since starting CrossFit?
Drastic changes in perception of fitness. Awareness of my levels of fitness and how my body responds to different intensities. Diet definitely has changed well my awareness of what goes into my body. Willingness to stay in the hurt longer and longer as I become more experienced. Importance of rest and everything you do outside of the gym.
What changes in your life have you experienced out of taking on CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
My perception of what health and wellness is. Grit, patience, perseverance, accountability, teamwork, being a student of fitness, focus on technique and how focus on the fundamentals in anything give way to the best results.
Please share any of your favorite CrossFit/BCF moments.
Anytime I get to throw down with the Balcones family is a blessing. Of course PRs but seeing others PR is just as satisfying and motivational.
Do you have any advice for people just getting started?
Technique and fundamentals before anything. HAVE FUN, hammer down on mobility, rest when your body tells you, eat clean but don’t be afraid to eat what you want at times. Be patient, work your butt off, and cheer on the people who are going through the same pain as you.
What are your hobbies or interests outside of CrossFit?
Hanging with friends, going outdoors, playing sports, movies, concerts, eating, sleeping, video games, music, and reading for entertainment/knowledge.
