When and how did you first find CrossFit? Google based on a rumor that one was opening in Greenwich.  Have always had an interest but nothing worked schedule wise until you opened.
 

What about CrossFit 06830 appealed to you and has kept you involved?  The constant challenge and variety of workouts
 

It takes a lot of commitment to keep showing up at the crack of dawn, and it’s really something to realize the give and take that people and families make to come in. What keeps you coming in? Constant improvement in my overall fitness and I find that I am a much more pleasant person after getting crushed 3-4x a week
 

What about the community? Everyone has a positive attitude and that definitely helps when you are pushing so hard.
 

There’s a lot to get out of a gym like ours other than what happens in classes. Speaking of that, lets hear a bit about you outside of the gym.  I work in real estate private equity at a firm in Greenwich and workout in the mornings because i never know when I’m going to get out of work.  I have an 8 month old daughter and outside of the gym and the office she is my priority.
 

How about hobbies outside of CrossFit? What do you do to relax? Golf, skiing and eating (don’t kill me EJ) & believe it or not cross fit is very relaxing to me
 

Did you have any injuries before CF? How have you dealt with them? Yes I herniated a disk 5 yrs ago and went to an ortho and then did pt, hurt it again a few years back and used a good chiropractor and was much happier.  one of the huge draws about our gym to me was the focus on mobility.  since joining i have improved my stamina, strength and mobility and feel better than I have in years
 

Any nicknames? Many but none that i would like to share :)
 

Last stock question: What do you think we should look for in a future Athlete of the Month? Someone who is motivated, attends frequently and wants to improve everyday....kit????
