What was your first CrossFit experience like?
OR: I was able to survive the first class. It was time for the WOD and I just hear 10 min front squats AMRAP every dropped bar 5 burpees. I grabbed my weight put it on the bar and started when they said go. First min passed and it felt like 5 min. Once the 10 min were up I was just thinking what did I get myself into. Hated it at the time but that was all I need to be addicted and be there the next day.
How has it changed your life? (if at all)
OR: I always did sports in the past and enjoyed the intensity during the workout. Here at Bedlam I am able to relive the past with the WOD that we do and push myself to the next level. There is always something that you can get better at. I know I’m not a strong guy that can pull a lot a weight on all WOD’s but I know the weight I can do that will allow me to work hard and keep pushing till the end.
What is your least favorite movement and why?
OR: I have to say snatch. I’ve had a shoulder injury in the past, but no matter how much a stretch and warm up before doing it, I always in up doing something to it that sets me back.
What else do like to do when you’re not in the gym?
OR: If I’m not at work or at the gym I’m usually bbq at the lake or pool. But now that football is here I’ll be watching that drinking a beer. Enjoy going to concerts, sports games.
What piece of advice would you give to someone who is thinking about starting CrossFit for the first time?
OR: It’s not for everyone but there is always something that you will like after doing it. It may look hard from the movement that are being done but there’s always a starting point that will allow you to get to that point. All exercises can be done with different movement that fits your flexibility.
