JANUARY: ADAM JUSTICE
When did you first start CrossFitting?
2013 at the old box then came back in July 2016
Really hard to pick just one. I am getting better at double unders. Pretty much any WOD where I see myself improving from a previous attempt.
Least Favorite WOD: BARBARA
How/Why did you start CrossFit?
I started back again in July 2016 to get in shape and to keep myself occupied. My brother is a Level 1 coach in AZ and he was visiting in July and we came to the box for a WOD and I’ve been back at it since.
Take us back to your first WOD... what was it, and how did it feel?
The very first at the old box I don’t remember but the WOD in July when I came with my brother was hell I seem to recall box jumps and burpees. I remember feeling very nauseous pretty much the rest of the day.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit (before/after)?
Before I was lethargic. Didn’t like to do much. I worked and sat around a lot. Now I’ve lost 20+ pounds. I feel better. I look better. Mentally I am more focused. Just an all around improvement in my lifestyle.
What sort of changes in your life have you experienced from taking on CrossFit that were totally unexpected?
The food challenge was big for me. I didn’t realize just how much your diet affects you. I knew it was a big part just not how big.
Any advice for people just getting started?
No matter how crappy you feel the first couple days or weeks don’t give up. Keep at it because its very worth it.
What are your hobbies, interests and/or talents outside of CrossFit?
Movies (Star Wars), guitar, heavy metal, golf, football, soccer
What is your superpower?
The power of talking incessantly and creating awkward silences.
