The John Arasim Sr. Award January 2016

Awarded to:

Michael Wheeler

When/Why did you start CrossFit?

I started CF in October 2014.  I’ve been into working for about 15 years and was looking for a new challenge.  I had been hearing a lot about CrossFit and decided to give it try.

How has CrossFit changed you?

My endurance has gone through the roof. I train in Brazilian jiu jitsu.  The guys there have told me how hard it is to roll with me because I can just keep going. I do CrossFit at least 4 days a week and I believe I have more endurance now than when I left boot camp for the Marine Corps.

What are your strengths/weaknesses in the gym?

Deadlifts seem to be my strength.

Weaknesses: overhead squats, i hate doing them and double unders, i haven’t been able to find a rhythm yet

What is your favorite WOD?

I don’t know that I have a favorite wod, but I do enjoy the team or partner workouts, as well as the hero wods.

 

We could not be more proud of you Michael!!  Keep up the good work in your journey for living a healthy lifestyle!!  Can’t wait to see what you accomplish in 2016!!
