How were you introduced to Crossfit?

Two years ago I was training for and racing triathlons. My body hurt from all the intense endurance training so I was looking for something new to try.

I was also dating a woman who was a member of a crossfit style gym and she pushed me towards the idea to try a crossfit gym. A google search later and I was calling CFPDX to get more info.

Favorite WOD/Lift:

I have a special place in my heart for “Hockey Night.” I also like the long chipper WODs like “Good fight gone bad.”

I have always wanted to:

Skydive.

One word people use to describe me:

Thoughtful

Outside of the gym I like to:

I enjoy cooking, socializing with friends, star gazing, and long walks on the beach.

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me

I live in a house that is over 100 years old. The original deed is dated 1893. It’s had numerous remodels of varying levels of quality, and I am currently in the process of upgrading it further.

Favorite physical activity outside of Crossfit:

Recently I have been running in some relay races like Hood to Coast. Testing my fitness in obstacle races. I also like hiking and the occasional bike ride.

Favorite place to eat in Portland:

I think Toro Bravo is amazing.

Song that gets me pumped for a workout:

songs by 3OH! 3, MIA, Goldfrapp

Proudest Accomplishment:

Getting my Journeyman Electrical license at the age of 26.
