1. How did you come to be a part of The Port? What’s the biggest thing that has changed since starting?

I came to the Port 2 years ago looking for an exercise program that would help me with my overall fitness level as I was applying for a new job requiring several fitness tests. At the time I was doing CrossFit as a secondary means of exercise while seeing a personal trainer 2-3 times a week at a regular gym. I continued doing CrossFit while steadily weening off of the personal trainer regiment. It took a while, but I finally started coming into the Port more than 1 or 2 times a week. As I got better with the movements, the workouts became not only a little bit easier but a lot more fun.

The biggest thing that has changed since starting is how much I enjoy working out. I used to go to a regular “globo-gym” and would actually struggle to put together a good workout. There were a lot of days that really didn’t want to workout because I knew it was more of the same movements. The Port and Crossfit changed that. With the constantly varying functional movements, I actually looked forward to different workouts every day.

2. What’s your favorite kind of music to listen to while you workout?

Any kind of music that has high energy. And turn it up loud.

3. What is your favorite/least favorite CrossFit movement?

Favorite – handstand walk

Least favorite – snatch

4. What was the last thing you Googled?

Crossfit Key Largo. I needed a place to workout while I was on vacation.

5. What is your favorite cheat food?

Ben & Jerry’s Half Baked Froyo. A big reason I workout a lot.
