How did you hear about Crossfit?
A friend of mine on the soccer team during my sophomore year of High School invited me to a free class back in Glen Cove. I already had some sort of a power cleaning background from Football workouts but not too much because I was only 15 at the time. I continued to do Crossfit for the rest of my High school career since then.
What do you like about Port Crossfit?
I actually went to a gym in Smithtown before port Crossfit and I really didn’t end up liking the place for a few reasons and for those same reasons I decided to stay at port. The people are really welcoming and friendly, the coaches are great athletes and it reminds me a lot of my gym back at home.
One word to describe yourself:
Competitive. I can’t stand losing.
What have you achieved since starting at Port Crossfit?
I have definitely improved my conditioning since I have been at port. I have always struggled with long WOD’s and I feel like recently I have really found a good mojo with certain workouts.
What would you like to accomplish?
300+ Clean and a 200+ Snatch by the end of this year.
Something others might not know about me:
I sing a lot, a few years ago I actually performed for President Obama with my choir, we sang Christmas songs for him and his family. He was huge.
What is a favorite WOD or lift?
I love anything with fast Hang power cleans, Handstand pushups, or realistically any gymnastic movement. I hate raw strength stuff like strict overhead presses.
A. Push Press (work to a tough set of 5)
B. AMRAP w/ Partner
9 box jumps
9 DB push press
