This month I’m celebrating my third year as a CrossFit Level 1 Certified Trainer. It’s been a solid three years of learning, growing, and experiencing all that this wonderful world of fitness has to offer. Recently I’ve been bringing a good friend Bob through our Private Training Foundations Course and it’s been awesome watching his hard work, focus, and determination to learn things the right way and his fight for perfect technique. Bob’s graduating with “Fight Gone Bad” this week and he’s going to be joining the morning crew on his days off from rowing at CRI. While Bob may not be one of our youngest members he is young at heart and reminds me of how awesome it is to learn and challenge yourself every single day. I have fun learning new things and I hope you do to. Looking forward to another great year as a coach at CFB!
Here’s what Bob is all about!
Who are you and what are you about?
I became interested in “serious” fitness in 2011 when I began to row at Community Rowing. This is where I met Pat. He was coaching the recreational sweeps program as part of the Institute for Rowing Leadership program he was enrolled in.
Why did you join CrossFit Boston?
I recognized that only rowing (on water and on the erg) was not providing me a whole body workout focused on strength and conditioning. At CrossFit Boston I like the energy level and attention to proper technique.
What are you getting out of the Private Training?
The private training is teaching me CrossFit fundamentals and the different types of WODs at a pace that I can better comprehend. Since I have mobility issues and my level of fitness is lacking, this is helping me prepare for group classes.
What are some of your goals for this year?
To increase strength and mobility.
What are you looking forward to once you graduate to group classes?
To (hopefully) keep up with the class and have CrossFit Boston complement my rowing.
