Member of the Month
Our Member of the Month for July is Trey Whitaker! Check out Trey's interview Below:
How long have you been with us at CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I've started CrossFit about 3 years ago and moved to Brickyard about a year ago. I was looking for a box with the best possible coaches, programming and community. Friends of mine suggested that Brickyard had these elements. They proved to be correct.
My first workout at Brickyard was Death by Squat Cleans. What made it most memorable was seeing old friends like Viv, Missy and Elizabeth. I was hooked right away.
How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
I had cancer surgeries in 2011 and 2012. In the aftermath, I expected that I would need to retire from strenuous activities. I felt weak and brittle. Now, despite being 57 years old and with lots of room for improvement, I feel as though I've never been stronger and more able. CrossFit has been mentally and physically transforming.
If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
I would like a 'Death by Triplet' of strict presses, deadlifts and back squats followed by a hundred yard tire flip. I'd like this to be a partner workout. My partner would be Brooke Wells.
What animal best represents you today?
I'd say an old lion. Scarred body, missing teeth, mangled and patchy mane with a preference for naps in the shade but still game for an occasional rumble.
If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
Either 'Shotgun' by Junior Walker & The All Stars or 'It's a Man's World' by James Brown and Luciano Pavarotti.
If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Sleep, eat, family, CrossFit, repeat.
What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Supportive friends, expert advice and a healthy lifestyle are key elements to a happier and more satisfying life. Dedicating yourself to CrossFit will make you healthier, happier and allow you to meet a slew of very cool folks
