How did you hear about CSC CrossFit/The Combine?I heard about crossfit at Crossfit Central.  I used to work close to their Burnet Rd. location.  I saw a bunch of people running around working out and it looked fun.  So I stopped in and they told me about crossfit.  I heard about The Combine simply by driving down hwy 290.

Why did you start CrossFit?  
I needed to do something about my personal fitness.  I was way out of shape.  I felt like I was an old man.

What has crossfit at The Combine done for you personally? Physically?
Personally, I am in a lot better shape.  I have a lot more endurance than I ever have.  Surprisingly, crossfit has really helped me emotionally.  I am happy person when I work out!  Physically, crossfit has completely removed my chronic joint pain.

What do you like most about CrossFit? 
The thing I like the most about Crossfit is the challenge.  Every WOD is a challenge.  Crossfit challenges your personal fitness level everyday.  I like the fact that  you are in a group class but have the freedom to push yourself to your own limits.

 What do you like most about The Combine?  
The thing I like about The Combine is the friendly atmosphere.  I've never once felt out of place.  Everyone is very helpful.  We all suffer together.  I think that's what brings us together as friends.

 What goals have you set and reached since starting at The Combine?  
I didn't have any real "goals" when I started.  I just wanted to feel better.  After the fitness challenge results at the first of the year I did set a goal of having six pack abs by birthday in September.  Unfortunately, with my schedule changes and my injuries that goal has not been achieved.  However, I am still very satisfied with my results and I'm setting some new goals now.  I want to see some significant increases on my benchmarks over the next couple of months.

 What are your 3 favorite exercises? 
Its hard to limit it to just three.  Clean and Jerk, Snatch and Thrusters.  I like to lift the weight above my head. Guess it makes me feel powerful.
