Starting out only being able to do 3 unassisted pull-ups, and ending with being able to do 15-20.
-Do you remember your first wod? What was it and how did it go?
Yes. It was great. I did it with Andy. He and I were the only ones doing it until it grew.

Get down to my prison weight. Finish the INSANITY workout. Run a half marathon.
-Do you play any sports now, or are there any you have participated
competitively in the past?
-What wods are your favorites?
Too many to name.

KB Swings and rowing.
-What one exercise makes you fill with fear when you see it posted?
-What wods are you most proud of?
-What is your greatest CrossFit accomplishment?
Finishing the Filthy 50 in decent time. I paid for it the next day.
-What is a typical day of nutrition for you?
Lately, I have been eating baked or grilled chicken for dinner, a salad for lunch, and a fat kid breakfast (LEAN SHAKE) that I got from GNC.
-What is your favorite food?
BEER and chicken.
-What is your favorite music to workout to? Or listen to in general?
-What is CrossFit, to you?
A great mixture of weight training, cardio, and endurance. You never know what the WOD is for the next day until it’s posted. You have to be ready to do anything. I like that the exercises and rounds are timed. It’s like a fitness, stamina, and an endurance test all in one.
-Where do you see yourself one year from now, fitness-wise?
Being able to wrestle a Louisiana alligator……for fun.
– Do you have any hobbies outside of Crossfit?
Refereeing, playing sports, running, and playing basketball with my little one.
– Tell us something about yourself that we may not know.
I was almost a stunt double for Chuck Norris, but I had to go TDY. I can’t wait to get back to CENTCOM, so that I can do the WOD’s with the original group that I started with.
