Member of the Month
Our Member of the month for April is Jeff DeMartino. Jeff works hard and goes above and beyond what it takes to be an excellent member. Congratulations! Check out his interview below!
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I came to CFBY almost a year ago after having been doing Crossfit for about 2 years. I remember it was a workout involving pistols, which I wasn’t able to do at the time. I really liked the scaling option we used in that WOD since it allowed you to go through the full range of motion and develop the strength and flexibility needed for them.
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
I played a lot of team sports growing up and through high school but that all stopped when I got to college. I ran sporadically and did some weightlifting in the gym but my diet was terrible and I was totally out of shape. Crossfit has gotten me in the best shape of my life and the coaches have helped optimize my diet for health and performance. Crossfit has also given my life balance, it keeps me stress free and has helped me develop the mental fortitude to take on challenges in other areas of life.
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
Hang power snatches and burpees (maybe some running or rowing thrown in too)
4. What animal best represents you today?
Greyhound, long limbs and loves to run
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
I like old school hip hop
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Motivated, adventurous, hardworking, loyal, kind
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
Come and make new friends! The community is the best part of Crossfit and having people to push you and hold you accountable will go a long way toward helping you to achieve your goals.
