June’s Member ShoutOut – Paul Jepson

Paul and Kate became members after making the move back “home” from Tampa, Florida. As you can see from his picture he still reps his old gym, but, he does own a few Port shirts, I’ve asked him. You can find Paul at either the 6am or the noon. Very rarely will you make a Paul sighting at the 9am or 4:15. If you ask him, he would be a nooner for life if work would stop getting in the way. Every time Paul walks in the door, he does so with a smile on his face and a determination to work hard. His presence in class is obvious to both the coaching staff and his peers, passing along the contagious energy to anyone he works with. Paul not only does an incredible job inside the walls of The Port, but he is a professional at balancing the gym, work, and his beautiful family (Kate and James) which will be adding one more in about a month. If you see Paul, give him a high five and a donut, he deserves it.

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

I went to college with Sophie. I had been doing CrossFit in Tampa for a few years, when we moved back, I reached out and pretty sure I was in the gym the next day.

I’m in the best shape of my life and never enjoyed working out more than I do now. I feel great, have more energy and have seen big improvements since joining the Port. I love the atmosphere of the gym, the people, and truly enjoy spending time at the Port. Thank you to Sophie and all the coaches and to Justin for the best programming. It’s great knowing all you need to do is show up.

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

Probably hip-hop. I’m not picky. My guess is if you asked me what songs were played after a workout I wouldn’t even know.

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

Favorite: If you asked me a year ago I’d probably say bench press. Now I really enjoy Push Jerks
Least Favorite: Squat Snatch

4. What was the last thing you Googled?

How to fix a leak in pool filter – I’m not handy at all
