Q: How long have you been going to Victory Gym? What changes have you seen in yourself (physically or mentally) since joining?

I have been a member at Victory since it first opened just over a year ago.

I feel a stronger physical connection to the earth. For example when walking or descending stairs. Each step feels more purposeful, secure.

Mentally this makes me feel much more grounded which ultimately helps me navigate better through the daily bullshit.

Q: How has your journey at Victory Gym helped you outside the gym?

Starting the day with a tough physical challenge definitely sets a tone and internal dialogue.

For example, “The moments ahead are going to be hard. I’ll do my best, I’ll do what I can. Bring it on.”

Q: Who inspires you at the gym, and how do they inspire you?

Nathan and Allie and the others, when they blow out an RX workout, are always so impressive. The way they move is fascinating, beautiful.

But so too is the collective nature of everyone doing the wod together, in a short amount of time, generating so much energy and power. It’s an epic moment of the day.

The coaches are a big part of the whole performance at Victory Gym.

Their different styles and levels of intensity are a key component here. They are the glue, the knowledge, the inspiration and the comic relief of every session.

Q: How would you describe what it’s like to be a part of Victory Gym?

It’s an honor to be a part of this small band of performers from here, there and everywhere.

Q: Tell us about your first day of class at Victory Gym.

I can’t remember my first day (I’m sure it was hard) but I do remember riding by the gym several times during its construction to see when it would be open.

Q: What is something that we may not know about you?

Before I moved to Savannah I spent 6 months in a canoe with my wife paddling from Wisconsin to the Florida Keys.

Q: What are your top 3 memories or proudest moments in CrossFit?

1. Mastering Double Unders!

2. The sound of everyone’s loaded barbells crashing to the floor.

3. Answering ‘Toast’ to Favorite Meal.

Q: Moving forward, do you have any short term or long term goals in the gym?

Short term goal is to show up every day

Long term goal is to master every movement with precision and purpose.
