I was always somewhat active when I was in school, but mostly in a very casual way. After graduating I found that I still wanted to be active but I wanted the activity to be more serious and structured. I wanted fitness to become a much bigger part of my life. So when my boss ‘encouraged’ us to join him at the 2014 Tuxedo Spartan Sprint, I took it as an opportunity to jump start my fitness. After I agreed I realized I desperately ] needed to prepare for the impending race. I happened to see EPIC’s sign while eating lunch across the street. I couldn’t believe the coincidence. Later that week I took my first class and I have been hooked ever since.
Have you done any OCRs? If so, which?
The 2014 Tuxedo Spartan Sprint
Since I only prepared for about a month before this race, every obstacle was hard. I really want to do a race this year to see just how far I have come.
What has been your biggest accomplished since joining EPIC?
There isn’t one move that I can pick for this, really I think my biggest accomplishment is how much my all around strength has increased since starting Epic. I notice it all of the time in day to day life and my other fitness activities.
What's next on your list of goals that EPIC can help you achieve?
Anyone who has worked out with me in the past couple months could probably answer this. Next I am absolutely determined to get a strict, unassisted pull-up.
What would you tell other members of EPIC? What about those thinking of trying or not yet at EPIC?
That there is no better workout out there. There might be a tougher one (I kind of doubt it) but you will never find a better combination of incredible coaching, supportive classmates, and hard work anywhere else.
