Here is a little about Thomas’s journey through CrossFit so far:
I had a buddy that was doing it. I got tired of waiting around at LA Fitness for equipment. So I tried it out and here I am.
Q: Where are you originally from?
Fort Myers, Florida
Q: What class do you attend?
I thought there was only one class…4:30
Q: Do you have a favorite workout or movement? Least favorite?
I like 21-15-9 of just about anything…short sprint/burners
Anything that involves the rower or bike
Q: What’s your favorite hobby, pastime or interest outside of work (other than CrossFit)?
Football – college or professional, fishing when I have time
Q: Favorite music to work out to or just listen to in general?
Country or classic rock…or podcasts
Q: What is something that we may not know about you?
I’m pretty good at ping pong.
Q: Favorite Atlanta Restaurant?
I don’t eat out much but I like Doraku or Marcel’s when I do.
Q: Favorite moment at CF Terminus?
When I PR’d my mile – that was pretty cool!
Q: How has CrossFit affected your life (inside/outside of the gym)?
My health has improved. I’m definitely in better shape than before – I cleaned up my diet and have been able to maintain it and keep the weight off.
I enjoy meeting people from different backgrounds and lifestyles
Q: Any advice for someone considering trying CrossFit for the first time?
You gotta start somewhere – you won’t walk in and be the strongest or fastest person. No one is the best athlete – there is always something to work toward! Don’t be discouraged if someone next to you is doing something different – it’s part of the process and you’ll always have someone to look up to. I also really like that everyone is so positive!
