- How did you learn about CrossFit?
I think my journey is the same as everybody else’s. We all start by someone challenging us to crossfit, or at least trying to get us to do it with them. After playing hockey my whole life and rugby in high school for division 1 schools I knew when I finished my fitness was going to lack. I started training the same I was in high school most of the basic lifts squats, presses, and bench. Although my training volume hadn’t changed much I missed training with individuals that were like minded and could really understand the hard work I had put in. I grew up with other professional athletes in my family and watching them always working on their weaknesses at all different times of the day, it sort of built that mindset that at one point I thought they were just superhuman. When I found out that one of my teammates, one who I have always tried competing with in the weight room had been doing it he hounded me to do it with him. From there I haven’t looked back. Especially as an athlete, the tranisition was very easy, and most of all you can’t beat the comradery associated with crossfit. Being an athletic trainer/physical therapy student it’s great to share what I learn in school and bring it to these wonderful athletes. What keeps me doing crossfit is the fact you will always find weaknesses in crossfit with so many varied workouts. And no girls you won’t get “big” doing crossfit. How long have you been CrossFitting? I started crossfit in 2008 at Crossfit Revelation out of Enfield, CT. My first day I thought to myself “they must be remodeling” all I saw was barbells on the wall, ropes hanging from the ceiling, and some sledge hammers. As I walk outside to check out what everybody was doing I saw everybody doing a team wod. Sled pulls and sand bag runs up hills followed by air squats at the top. At that moment I knew everyone was as crazy as me.
