Member of the Month
Our member of the month for October is Mark Gagnon! Most people know Mark for his witty jokes, he is a hard worker and a joy to have in class. Congrats! Check out his interview below!
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I started in March 2013. My first workout was Cleans and it was awful, and it still is! Seth described my hold on the bar as a “death grip”. I will be never known for speed (mentally or physically) but I will continue working on moving the elbows quick.
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
Have I ever mentioned I was married before? Well, I don’t have to drink so much anymore now that I am divorced. I have found the last thing you want to do is sport a hangover for a weekend workout. I witnessed others visiting the dumpster and decided that part of the workout was not for me, as much as I came close being stone sober.
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
Pull-ups, Push-ups and Push Press. That is about all that’s left which Noah doesn’t crush me on.
4. What animal best represents you today?
A skunk? Pepe Le Phew? Maybe a sloth, slow and deliberate.
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
Anything by Rage Against the Machine.
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Work, Eat, drink, love, laugh. Love is usually preceded by drinks. Though not Bill Cosby drinks.
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Show up and it is never too late to start. There is always something pulling you away, be it family, work, whatever. The key is coming in on a regular schedule and it will all fall into place. The coaching staff is great, every one of them offer different insights about how to improve. I tell friends the sooner they start, the better off they will be. Besides the obvious physical impact, the physiological benefits are great. The atmosphere at Brickyard is encouraging and positive and I miss it on my off-days. It is a good thing there is no web cam because I wouldn’t be working since I would be watching what I was missing and cheering my CFBY friends from afar.
