How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?

A friend started the day before and she was telling me about it. I thought, why not, lets give it a try! I was very intimidated by CrossFit, but I'm always up for a challenge."
 I have continued with this journey for almost a year now because of the awesome environment that all the coaches and members create there!

I dont really know my favorite movement...I really like the cardio type workouts the best. Anyone who has ever worked out with my knows my least favorite- snatches! But I keep trying it and maybe someday I will like it (I doubt it, but maybe)

Anymore, my interests and hobbies are spending time with friends and family. I have been a baker working as an electrician for 20 years.

How did you hear about BCF and what made you want to join?
My son started 4 or 5 years ago, at which time I said it wasn’t anything I’d ever do. Than I had a physical with pathetic results. My body wasn’t allowing me to run any more. In the past I had belonged to gyms and didn’t last. So I ate some crow and joined BCF.

I don’t see myself as much of an athlete. I’m an old guy who wants to be able to do my job for many years to come.

I almost like KB swings. I’m going to have go with thrusters for non-favorite.

Always proud at the finish of any workout I’ve completed!

Friends and family.

CF has helped me in my work both mentally and physically: fewer back problems and better attitude.
