Bragging rights to whomever can pick out Andy in the crowd, here… Bwahahaha!
First Name & Last Initial:
West Point, NE
When did you first start CrossFitting:
When did you first start training at IHCF:
I enjoy rowing and lifting workouts
Least Favorite WOD:
Anything that has a running or burpee component involved. I tend to avoid those workouts
How did you first get exposed to CrossFit. Take us back to your first WOD… what was it and how did it feel:
My sister asked me if I wanted to do a bootcamp on Sunday. We did a combination of squats, sit-ups and running in the park on a warm day. At first I was hesitant on doing it but once I started I enjoyed it. I felt fine until about 4 hours later when the soreness set in and I was unable to walk normally for 3 days.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit (before/after):
I have gained strength and endurance since starting CrossFit. When I first started, it was a struggle to complete the baseline. Now I am able to lift more, have more energy and have acquired more skills such as wall walks and rope climbs.
Please share with us any favorite CrossFit/IHCF moments:
The 5:30am conversations and debates are entertaining. You never know what will come out. I also enjoyed watching Chris have to do burpees when he was 5 minutes late one morning.
Any advice for people just getting started:
Just go and give it your all when you are there. You won’t gain anything by trying to cut corners.
Thanks for sharing your story with us, Andy! You’re a great addition to the family and we’re excited to see how far you’ll go!
