June, 2007


How did you first discover CrossFit and what made you decide to start?

An amazing Tennis Coach. It was hard.


Tell us about your fitness/sports background:

Just remain active… no official sports background


What sorts of positive changes (mental, physical, emotional) have you noticed in your life since getting involved at No Excuses?



Who or what keeps you coming back and motivated?

When I am 80 years old, I want to continue to live an amazing life.


In what other ways do you use your fitness?

As I sit at my desk and work, I can keep going without losing focus or throughput


Please share with us a favorite CrossFit or No Excuses moment.

Nothing comes to mind 🙁


Name one goal you would like to achieve in the next year (doesn’t have to be CrossFit related, but it can be)



Tell us about your hobbies and interests outside of the gym:

If it is challenging, and it aligns with my long-term goals, and it makes me ask the question “why on earth did I do this?”… then I am all for it.


What advice do you have for someone just starting CrossFit or is on the fence about starting? 

It will be hard… But if you truly want results, there is no better place to be.


What do you love most about No Excuses?
