Trainee Profile: Alan M.

Jake Trainee Profiles

Biggest accomplishment in the gym so far:

Drinking Four Loko with Ryan P and living to tell about it-just kidding (but that really did happen). I’d have to say meeting all the advanced standards on the last CrossFit total day because I had really been working basics and flexibility hard to try to meet those requirements.

What do you want to accomplish next in the gym:

Muscle-ups are the next step for me, so if you see me doing weird things on the rings pre-workout it’s because I’m working toward those.

Favorite WOD/lift:

Jake’s Strongman day and CrossFit total day are tied for my favorite.

I have always wanted to:

Fly fish in Montana/Alaska.

1 word people use to describe me:

Modest. I reference the Batman underoo incident during Endurance. Outside of the gym I like to: Play dentist.

Something nobody knows about me or would be surprised to know about me:

I took voice lessons for a couple years when I was younger…I still question that decision to this day.

Favorite physical activity outside of CrossFit:

Long drive competitions and golf in general.

Favorite place to eat in Richmond:

I’m still trying to figure this out. I basically shoot for places that turn into bars at night or places where hippies tend to congregate.
