Member of the Month
Our member of the month for April is Dave Choquette! Dave’s been crushing WODs at Brickyard Since Nov 2013! check out is interview below.
1. How long have you been with us At CFBY? Do you remember your first workout?
I have been with CFBY since November 2013. I don’t remember exactly what my first WOD was, but I believe it was something with wall balls, air squats, and a jump rope.
2. How would you compare your previous lifestyle with the one that is today?
Prior to CFBY I was a member at a globo gym. I was bored and went very infrequently. Going was just part of my routine, and eventually that part of my routine faded away. I wasn't in the best shape. A current and a former member of CFBY had been pushing me to join for a while and I’m glad they did. After 3 1/2 years I still look every night at the next day’s WOD in anticipation of what I will be doing. I'm now in the best shape of my life.
3. If you could design the perfect workout for yourself that would it be?
My perfect workout would be something like 5 rounds for time of 10 front squats (115/75), 10 hang power snatch (115/75), 20 box jumps (30/24), 30 wall balls (20/14).
4. What animal best represents you today?
I'd say a camel best represents me. Not because I like warm temperatures, because I don't, but because I’ve been known to have a rounded back, or "hump" during certain movements. Some friends have pointed this out to me. It's much better then it used to be.
5. If you could pick the perfect song to listen during the best workout of your life what would it be?
I can't think of just one song, I'd have to say anything by Kenny Chesney. I def feel like I do better when the coach is playing country music during the WOD
6. If you were to summarize your lifestyle in 5 words or less, how would it go?
Healthy, motivated, work, eat, laugh
7. What advice do you have for anyone thinking about starting?
CrossFit will take you out of your comfort zone, don't be intimidated. When you join CFBY you join a community. A community that will help you with the best way for you to do the WOD, and motivate you throughout the WOD. Stick with it and you will be in the best shape of your life.
