Why did you decide to join DHCF?
I’ve always been pretty athletic but let myself lapse into being really out of shape so I was looking to get back to doing something. I saw some pictures of my friends Ken & Kristy Peterson at DHCF on Facebook. I asked Ken what it was all about and later that day he badgered me into going to a class with him. Even though I was seriously winded after the warm-up and was sore for about 3 days after, I loved it and signed up right away.
What has been your most memorable achievement at DHCF?
Were you surprised to find yourself a top of the podium at the “Dynamic Duo” competition?
Surprised is definitely an understatement! Never having done a competition before, I was really just hoping not to embarrass myself. It was fun to spend the day with some great DHCF members, set a PR on the Clean & Jerk and get on the podium. Of course, it also helped to have a partner like BDuck who was awesome all day.
Do you feel CrossFit has stepped up your bowling game? Which we have heard is top level already.
Haha, yeah I’ve been bowling all my life and do it pretty competitively (leagues, tournaments, etc). It definitely has helped to be stronger and better balanced but the biggest improvement has probably been on the mental side. It takes a certain amount of determination and concentration to get through WOD’s like Open 14.5 and that translates to any sport.
What is your favorite music to WOD to?
Like a WOD, music should be varied each day. And Loud. Very Loud.
