Luckily, he and his wife and co-trainer Ashley, were introduced to CrossFit in Frankfurt, Germany where they were living and he was playing at the time. One trial session and he was hooked. “I still remember my first workout of 21-15-9, Wall balls, KB Swings and Burpees, at the time this 5 minute or so workout got more out of me than an hour and a half normally at the gym. I have never enjoyed going to the gym and doing typical Globo gym style workouts.. I just couldn’t get motivated in that atmosphere. My former teammates and friends laugh at me now that they see how fit I am and that I love training- this just wasn’t for me in younger hockey playing days. Once I found CrossFit I was able to feel like I was training and competing instead of exercising. CrossFit translates to so many other aspects of life in terms of confidence and mental toughness, not just the body image”
Favourite Workout: Anything with squats or lunging.
Least Favourite Workout: Angie (anything with 100 reps of the same thing sucks)
Favourite CrossFit/motivational quote: “The goal is to get fit, make it the best hour of your day, stay safe, turn up the music, high five some people, and blow off some steam. So remember that. Relax. Have fun. Work out.” – Pat Sherwood
