I watched it at Miramont while I worked out there. Some of the cardio machines along the track overlooked the gym; I would also play basketball right next to them on the other half of the court. I became interested and was already sick of my current routine, so I decided to try something new!
The coaches. That’s why I came. Also, I’m drawn to the community. I already knew a lot of the athletes because we all came together. I like all of these people a lot.
My health. I’m probably at the healthiest point in my life ever -- so far. In general, I’m eating better and working out more -- if that’s possible. Haha! I feel better than I have in a long time.
I dislike people who don’t listen and are disengaged when talking to them. Also.. inattentive drivers.
I always like the “that’s what she said” jokes, but I can’t think of an actual one.
Hopefully I’ll be living life to the fullest. I would like to be even healthier -- I’ll probably be the healthiest I’ve ever been.
I like to golf, go snowboarding, mountain biking, hiking, wood working -- all things functional fitness!!
Professionally, I work at a custom door shop. I’m a project manager there, and am involved in sales. I enjoy it. It’s just a “mom and pop” place; maybe in a handful of years, myself and another sales guy might be able to take it over, but it’s hard to say.
My Mom. She’s always positive and willing to help anyone. She never complains; for example, she’s had health issues that she never told me about until after they were resolved because she doesn’t want to complain or discuss anything negative. I try to be like her.
There’s also an athlete here that’s always positive, supportive, and uplifting. I won’t name him, but he has been a positive influence on me -- he’s almost a mentor without knowing. He’s someone I’d like to be more like when I grow up.
I like rope climbs and tire flips.
I just finished “The Life of Bob Marley,” and I also read National Geographic.
Just show up and start! Try it! You don’t really know what it’s going to be like until you’re involved. Getting here is half the battle.
