Favorite WOD: Helen, 3 rounds of: Run 400m, 21 kettlebell swings, and 12 pull-ups. It’s just a classic and simple triplet combining all three types of CrossFit movements: monostructural, weightlifting, and gymnastics.
Favorite movement: Muscle-ups or overhead squats
Least favorite WOD: Karen is pretty awful. I could easily do without 150 wall ball shots.
Least favorite movement: Wallballs, especially 2 for 1 types. Feel lucky if you don’t know what those are.
Started CrossFitting: March 2009 in Afghanistan
How did you hear about CrossFit: In the Marine Corps. My First Sergeant said, “Hey, Sir, you’d like this workout, and it’s quick. It involves these thrusters and rope climbs, give it a go.” And so it went…

Favorite WOD: Burpee Mike’s Birthday WOD (30 calories, 30 box jumps, 30 thrusters, 30 pullups, 30 snatches, 30 burpees, 30 double-unders), “DT” is great! I love the the deadlift and hang power clean combo. “Hansen” rocks and last but not least, “Annie”.
Favorite Movements: Deadlifts and hang power cleans. Also double-unders and GHD sit-ups (although those leave my abs so sore I can’t laugh for the next week lol!)

Started CrossFitting: February 2011
How did you hear about CrossFit: My best friend was getting ready to head back to Alaska and instead of saying “I’m going to miss you” she said “I’m going to miss CrossFit”. What?! I was appalled, horrified at the fact that she’d miss a workout more than me! The very next day she took me to my first CrossFit class. Little did I know then that I was about to embark on one of the coolest journeys of my life. “You had me at ‘hello’” (as cheesy as it sounds) would describe my immediate devotion and fascination with CrossFit.
Workout Music of Choice: Metallica or Rage Against the Machine
Workout shoes: My inov-8′s and the Reebok Nanos.
Other Interests: My husband my dogs Bella, Hercules and Rambo my family, my church and music.
Favorite TV Character: I don’t watch much TV, but off the top of my head, I’d say Rachel from Friends
Brian Wohlgemuth – Coach
CrossFit Level 1 Certified
CrossFit Coach’s Prep Course
Favorite WOD: Squat Clusters - The thing I love most about this one is that it pushes you beyond what you think is possible. It forces you to put yourself in a scenario in which you’re unsure whether or not you will make the later lifts. The challenge is so much mental as it is physical. As much as I LOVE coffee, I must admit this workout will wake you up in so many ways that a cup of the finest brew wishes it could.
Favorite movement: Heavy back squats, snatch, clean & jerk. If I had to pick one it would be the back squat. Nothing better than firing up that central nervous system in the company of some enthusiastic, like minded comrades.
Least favorite WOD: Diane
Least favorite movement: Handstand push ups
Started CrossFitting: June, 2011
Workout music of choice: I’m all over the map as far as music goes. Sometimes hard n heavy, sometimes more cerebral and vibey. The only prerequisite is that it must be inspiring.
Workout shoes of choice: Reebok nano 2.0′s, Vans, Chucks.
Other interests: Coffee, sci-fi, action, psychological thrillers, skateboarding, the infinite quest for the best burger(s), rock n’ roll.
Favorite TV Show Character: Walter White, Draper, Sulu, B.A. Baracus, Van Alden, Omar, Mcnulty, etc.
