Why do you CrossFit?

I was in the Marine Corps for four years. The Marine Corps made me suffer physically daily. When I got out I discovered I missed that suffering. CrossFit fills that void.

What do you do for a living?

I am a junior at UNCW, majoring in Biology. The dream is to be a Veterinarian.

When you are not in the gym, what is your favorite thing to do?

Look at dank memes

Name one thing most people don’t know about you.

I was born in Riverside, California during a 7.3 magnitude earthquake, one of the strongest earthquakes to ever hit California.

What is your favorite CrossFit workout?

Deadlifts. They make me feel powerful.

What is your favorite cheat meal?

An entire chicken pot pie that I don’t have to share with anyone followed by a dessert pie. It doesn’t matter what kind (apple, rhubarb, blackberry, blueberry, peach), I love them all. The crust of both pies MUST be buttery and flakey.

What is your next fitness goal?

To link together my kipping pullups and toes to bar. Them singles are getting old.

If you were arrested with no explanation, what would your friends and family assume you had done?

Broke into some research lab to free all the animals they experiment on.

If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?

Whenever I’m about to do something, I think, ‘Would an idiot do that?’ And if they would, I do not do that thing.
