June member of the month and Golden kettlebell winner is Alex! Kicking ass and taking names! Comes to work everyday an although he hasn’t been here that long he  has made a huge transformation!

“I was super honored and humbled to get the golden kettlebell yesterday at CrossFit Science Park. Crossfit has changed my life. With the help of Coach Dan I was able to work through a lot of things as well as get in shape. I’ve never taken fitness seriously in the past until I walked through that door. Crossfit has helped me gain self worth, make friends, opened me up to a great community, and taught me so much about personal fitness and health. I really encourage everyone to try something like this.”

Crossfitting for about 7 months now.

2. How long have you been a member of CFSP?
Been a member of CFSP that whole 7 months. That’s where I got me start with Crossfit.
       3. What made you walk through the door?.

            I was looking for a shift in my life and better way to exercise and get into shape. I had only heard of Crossfit              very vaguely through media or friends. I was walking along one day and said to myself “I should try that”

Favorite moment is when I finally breakthrough on a movement. Like kicking up the wall for a HSPU for the first time or nailing my first double under. Those moments are usually filled with a lot of accomplishment and happiness.
7. What is your least favorite movement or work out?
Least favorite: WALL BALLS

          3 months, be able to comfortably do a snatch with a good amount of weight and a full squat. 6 months, be                  able to do 5 HSPU. 1 year from now, be able to do a bar or ring muscle up.
9. Tell us about Alex, outside the box?
I’m a baker by trade, I love to play video games, cook, go hiking or biking, reading. I’m a pretty chill person. Someday I want to open up my own bakery.
10. One piece of advice you would tell a newbie?
Advice: drink tons of water before and after a workout. Like tons. It will help with recovery. And the sooner you get your diet in check the easier it gets to see results and to push yourself towards meeting your goals.
