WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU WOULD SAY IF SOMEONE ASKED YOU ABOUT CROSSFIT AND CROSSFIT GREAT SALT LAKE? “DON’T GIVE UP. RESULTS WILL COME IF YOU WORK HARD!”

HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT CROSSFIT AND WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST EXPERIENCE/WOD?
A friend of mine started to Crossfit back in NYC. I hadn’t seem him in a couple months and it got him into crazy shape really quickly. I decided I had to check it out.

WHEN DID YOU FIRST COME TO CROSSFIT GSL?
I first came to CrossFit nola in the summer of 2013. I was a visiting medical student doing a fourth year elective at children’s hospital and i happened to be subletting a place right near the midcity location. I met Liz and signed up for the month i was here.

HOW MANY DAYS DO YOU CROSSFIT?
What classes do you normally take (times and specialties)?
I usually do 2-3 WODs a week, typically in the afternoon and almost always downtown since I can walk there. I have also started occasionally going to Strongman class in MidCity, if you haven’t checked it out you should.

WHAT MOTIVATES YOU/KEEPS YOU COMING BACK TO CROSSFIT GSL?
I love Crossfit because as soon as you get comfortable you realize how much more you really have to grow.

FAVORITE THING ABOUT CROSSFIT GSL?
This is the smallest city I’ve ever lived in, but it has lots of the trappings of a much larger place. I love how I can go out for a great meal and run into people I know. Also, everyone is so friendly here.

WHAT ACCOMPLISHMENT ARE YOU THE MOST PROUD OF (OUTSIDE AND INSIDE OF THE GYM)?
I just completed my first muscle up for 15.3; it was a LONG time coming.
Outside the gym the biggest accomplishment of my past year has to be finishing medical school and starting residency; it also has been a LONG time coming.

AFTER A HARD WORKOUT, WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MEAL?
I eat a lot of chicken/pork and veggies (usually broccoli) with tons of hot sauce. If I’m having a cheat meal probably some Vietnamese or Korean food, also Lilly’s is walkable from the downtown location so …

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR INTERESTS OUTSIDE OF CROSSFIT?
I run nearly every Wednesday with Happy’s Running Club. I also like to run up and down St. Charles street. I recently have gotten back into Bikram yoga so we shall see how that mixes with my Crossfit training. I love to travel anywhere and I also love to spend time with my nieces and nephews. Nothing beats a day on the beach with a good book and a cold drink!

WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?
I am a pediatric resident for LSU at Children’s Hospital.

WHAT IS ONE GOAL THAT YOU ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
I would like to run another marathon within the next year
