HOW LONG HAVE YOU DONE CROSSFIT AND WHAT MADE YOU TRY IT OUT ?  I’ve done CrossFit almost two years and I was attracted to regimented group fitness. I’m a retired Marine, so being given a WOD felt familiar. I dig it. 

WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ABOUT CROSSFIT AT FIRST? I loved that there were so many people my age digging deep and getting it in! 

DESCRIBE YOUR FAVORITE THINGS ABOUT CROSSFIT AND HOW IT HAS IMPACTED YOUR LIFE:  The best thing about CrossFit at Top Gun is the knowledgeable coaches. I trust them to provide a dynamic workout that challenges me while keeping me safe. 

FAVORITE WORKOUT:  My favorite workout are tiered reps (50, 40, 30...) like the Anna(?). It’s grueling at the beginning, yet tapers off to just HARD. 

FAVORITE MOVEMENT:  My favorite movement is the good, old-fashioned push-up. My least favorite is the burpee. Burn it with fire.
