Hear about Morgan from Morgan:
I came across CrossFit late 2011, bored with my solo-gym routine and struggling daily with self motivation. Shortly after joining, I knew I had made the right decision. It soon became my priority to become a part of the community that CFCC had built: inspiring, encouraging, and awe-worthy. The importance of my own performance gains were soon paralleled by the progress of fellow athletes in the gym, and I wanted to be a part of them dong well. Coaching at CFCC has given me a front row seat to watching people change their lives for the better, challenge themselves daily, and do more than they had previously thought themselves capable of.
What is CrossFit?CrossFit is a game-changer. It’s a style of training that allows you to re-define yourself physically and mentally. Challenging yourself daily develops character that translates into your every day life, and encourages us to see ourselves as prideful and incredibly capable beings.
Most Memorable CrossFit Moment?Probably my first team competition at CrossFit Generation. The second event was a Clean and Jerk ladder and I pr’d my lift twice, by a total of almost 20 pounds. I had never felt such an intense sense of accomplishment, and when opposing teams were cheering for us- the sense of community was overwhelming. We made it to the finals and that moment finally forced me to start seeing myself as an athlete.
What’s your favorite workout?Jeremy! It’s short, sweet, and has overhead squats.
Goals for my own training:At the moment I’m living, breathing, and eating to qualify for Regionals, but when the dust settles, I’d like to snatch my BW by December 2014.
Hobbies outside of CrossFit?Is that a trick question? I actually really enjoy live music and try to make it to at least one festival a year- so I can get it all out of my system at once.
