1. Why Do You Train:

For longevity. I’m not scared of pain, but I am scared of heart Disease. To be able to live a better life.

2. Why do you train at out gym?

At first, I didn’t want anything to do with CrossFit. My Wife Dianne has been doing it for a while and I just thought it was not for me. I came to the first workout and it didn’t take but a few workouts to realize this is really cool. I like the whole family aspect and that got me hooked.

3. What were you most afraid of when you joined our gym?

Doing lower body exercise because of problems with my knees. Doing things like squats, but those things are coming around.

4. What was one thing that got you to take the initial leap and sign up?

Location was a factor, being right in town. Having 4 different class times works great for what I do. It works out well to come to any class time and I have utilized every one of them. I like meeting people from each class.

5. What is a goal of yours?

To perform Turkish Get-Ups well. I do not get down on the ground well and I don’t get up well. The Turkish Get-Up is a great exercise to help that.

6. What is most important to you in life right now?

Family is most important thing. If we are blessed to have grandchildren I want to be able to play with my grandchildren and not watch my grandchildren play. By doing this I think that is going to help.

7. What are your biggest challenges in life?

Motivation. For anything whether its work or working out, you just got to do it. Once you get there and get involved in it, you’ll get it done.
