Q: How long have you been going to Terminus? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?
I joined Terminus in October of 2018. Ryan Oubre kept showing up to look at houses suuuper sweaty and jacked after his WOD and he invited me to come workout! It has definitely improved my physique and conditioning. But, the biggest change I have seen in myself is my level of focus. I have been able to train my mind to be more present and do just a little bit more than I think I am capable of doing.
Q: How has your journey at Terminus helped you outside the gym?
Putting yourself through these grueling workouts week in and out definitely creates a strong mental fortitude.
Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?
Probably cliché but I would say everyone! Seeing someone who is clearly more fit than you and trying to keep pace with them is super inspiring, or seeing all of the Eastman’s there working out together is amazing and totally family goals!
Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Terminus?
It’s like going to school again, but maybe like a P.E. class ha! You have a chance to get to know this wonderful community all while also going through super tough workouts together!
Q: Tell us about your first day of class at Terminus.
Back in 2018 we still had “intro” class. All I really recall is Patrick was our coach and I was eager to show how in shape and fit I was and that I was ready for the regular class! I was not..
Q: What is something that we may not know about you?
I was in a few local bands here and spent from 2009-2015 playing music all over the country
Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?
1. Placing in 2nd at last years 10k
2. Getting my first muscle up
3. Meeting my bro Thomas
Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?
Butterfly pull-ups are my short term and my long term is to do L3 for every workout for a whole year!
