Growing up I played baseball, golf, soccer, basketball, football pretty much every season I was playing something. In high scool I only played football and golf, baseball and golf were the same season so I picked golf.
How did you find CF? What was your first workout?
I think the Games may have been on tv last year and then it sparked my interest, and the movements looked fun.Then I googled CF gyms near me and Kanna popped up. Followed the social media for a bit and then emailed Chris for a into, much to the surprise of my wife Jill. My first workout was Weighted Step-ups with a finisher of 200 m run and box jumps.
What’s your favorite thing about CF?
I really enjoy the variety of the workouts from day to day, and the coach and team/community interaction.

Golf, working on my 1973 Dodge Charger that was my Great Grandmother Weezie’s, and anything that gets me outdoors.

Like the Red Sox, Patriots, and Bruins. Just kidding, that’s obvious. Really enjoy all things History.

Going to the gym, in the past I never stuck to any gym longer than a month or two. The PR’s I am most proud of would be deadlift at 425 and back squat at 300.

How does one become Member of the Month? By embodying the mission of CrossFit Kanna of Learning, Working Hard, and Having Fun. By contributing to the community and supporting others in and out of the workout. By being open to coaching and improving oneself for the sake of being better, not to “win” the workout. By just generally being a good person and having a positive attitude. And a lot more, but you get the idea!
