Tell us about your first day walking through the doors at Ten Twenty:  I was trying to convince my roommate to get into CrossFit so we came in on a Saturday.  I hadn't trained in 2 months.  I almost lost my lunch that day, but I remember the coaching being awesome and meeting everyone there.  It was great!

What benefits/accomplishments have you seen/had since joining? I'm lifting more in all my lifts since joining, and I just feel healthier.

What are your individual goals? 200#'s in the core lifts, a muscle up and handstand walks.

Favorite moment at 1020 so far?  The Thanksgiving party, it was a blast!  And getting Double Unders.

What do you enjoy  most about the coaching staff at 1020? How outgoing all the coaches are, and their collective ability to get me to understand my form and technique.

Words of advice for someone interested in getting started? Take the plunge.  It's challenging and anyone can do it, you just have to have a good attitude.

Tell us something we don't know about you?  I'm a giant nerd.  I love comic books, the Flash is my favorite.  I also have a compulsion to back into parking spaces.

Favorite WOD?  Anything with Clean Lifts.

Least Favorite WOD? Anything with thrusters and wall balls.
