Member of the Month
Our Member of the month for September is JUAN!!!!!! Juan Works Super Hard and Always finds a Way to Yell to everyone in the middle of class to keep going! Congratulations Juan! Check out his interview below:
Interview for Member of the Month:
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I’ve been with CFBY for just about 3 years! I’ll never forget my first WOD right after I finished Foundations…and every time I hear her name my eyes twitch. I met Fran that day and she kicked my butt.
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
Before Crossfit I was one of those people who ate anything and didn’t care what I was doing because I told myself I would just hit the gym harder. I was stuck in the old gym routine and plateauing for years. Ever since I started Crossfit, my diet has changed drastically. I eat so much better and I actually understand how I’m helping my body. I’m pushing my body to the limits and beyond during workouts, getting PR’s and making my goals. I’ve accomplished things in Crossfit that I never thought I could’ve done. I’m constantly challenged during Gerry and Michele’s WODs and that makes this experience all the better. I love Crossfit and I love Brickyard. Being a member here has 100% changed my life for the better!
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
The perfect workout for me would have to include double unders, toes-to-bar, Handstand Push-ups, and some kettlebell action. Help warm up the shoulders a little bit.
4. What animal best represents you today?
Not an easy question. I would have to say a Pitbull and I have my pup Cooper to thank for my inspiration. He’s always in the mood to play and be active and also doesn’t mind just hanging out and being lazy. Pretty much how I like to be. Plus dogs are just awesome and Pitbulls are fantastic.
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
Eminem – Lose Yourself. I remember doing the Opens 15.1a WOD at the old place. My PR for a C&J was holding at 185#. I had only a couple minutes left and I was feeling good. Throw a little Eminem in with 205# and bam…new PR.
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Healthy. Active. Thankful. Motivated. Dedicated.
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Don’t think, just do it! Everyone has an opinion and the only way to make your own is to start up. You will be constantly challenged, always supported, and you will never be made to feel uncomfortable. Brickyard is full of the smartest coaches around who are also the nicest people you will ever meet. They will get you to where you want to be and beyond. Crossfit is competitive and will get you pumped to workout everyday. You have to always know that you WILL improve and you WILL get stronger! It’s a guarantee.
