How were you introduced to Max Effort Fitness?
I was looking for a gym to do cross training with the exercise routines I was doing for the previous 5 years. I Didn't know much about crossfit. Max effort was the third gym I visited, and I knew right away that it was the right one for me.
What is your proudest accomplishment since being a member at MEF?
My main accomplishment so far was learning the exercises and how to do them properly without injuring myself or anyone else.
What is your or biggest improvement since joining MEF?
I think my techniques are getting better. Still can't do HSPU, but someday. My strength is improving, and very recently I have had a huge running improvement.
What is your 6 month goal?
Continue losing weight, and get stronger to where I can do pull ups and HSPUs.
What is your favorite exercise?
My favorite exercise is running, but dead lifts and back squats are climbing the list, quickly.
Least favorite exercise?
What is your favorite cheat meal?
Is beer considered a food?
If you created a workout, what would it be?
I would do an alternating cardio/core type workout.
What do you love most about Max Effort Fitness?
Max Effort is the total package. The workouts, coaches, friendly supportive environment, and family type atmosphere makes it a great place to work out.
