Athlete Spotlight: Adam B
What made you choose CrossFit True?
We live in Town Walk. It’s right behind us.
How long have you been training with us?
1 year and 1 week (or 100 WOD if you wish).
What has been your proudest moment in the past 90 days?
I actually did travel workouts while traveling.
When you are not at the gym, what do you do for work? What do you do for fun?
I’m a principal software engineer. For fun I usually play video games and hike/walk/bike.
How is your nutrition? How has it changed since joining CrossFit True?
Well, this is the end of summer, so… But in general I eat healthy, mostly mediterrean diet with intermittent fasting. This is an area where I improved a lot in the past year, not because I ate a lot of junk food before but because I didn’t really know portions, micro- and macronutrients, calorie counts. I am much more nutrition-aware now.
What are your 3 favorite movements/exercises?
Ugh, tough question… Burpee over box, cleans, and (I know, I know… something is wrong with me…) AssaultBike.
And as an extra movement: running to the bathroom to pee between warmup and workout :)
What is your favorite style workout? (AMRAP, EMOM, Rounds for Time, etc)
What about your favorite workout?
Anything that makes me question my decision to do this to myself
Any favorite workout songs?
Nothing special. High BPM for conditioning, rumbling bass or screaming rock for lifting heavy.
Have you changed physically or mentally since you’ve been working out with us?
Tremendously lot. My physique has never been better, I’m in the shape of my life. Mentally: I learned that when you think you want to quit, that is when the workout starts.
What are your current goals?
Eternal life, free beer. Joking aside…. Eternal life. I truly believe if I can get to 80 in a healthy state, technological advancements in health care will give me another 50 years which gives me enough time to probably see humanity create an artificial super intelligence which in 99% will eradicate humanity and 1% solve all our problems including aging/mortality. And even if I’m wrong, I still will be a kick-ass healthy 80 year old ;)
How have your goals changed since you joined?
I little. Still want eternal life and free beer along with 200lb snatch, a BMU and 20m handstand walk.
What has been the biggest surprise since joining CF True?
I can run. And even more surprisingly... I enjoy it.
What can you do now that you couldn’t do before joining?
Strict pushups, run 5k, unbroken double unders, deadlift my weight, power snatch my wife’s weight
Say something else, Anything!
I love you guys! I really appreciate every minute I can spend with all of you.
