5 Year Member Highlight: Gary Greenfest

– How many days a week do you workout (and typically what time slot)?

When I had more time 3-5 x per week in the afternoon (5:30pm).

– What is your favorite thing about BCF?

The community, friendly competition, as well as the quality of the coaching which can’t be minimized.

– What is your favorite movement/workout? Least favorite?

 My favorite workout is one that involves technique, strength, and cardio; traditional Crossfit movements with a run.  Crossfit Total is NOT my strength, no pun intended.

– What is your favorite post WOD meal?

 Burger and shake (earn the calories I just burned).

– What accomplishment are you most proud of (inside or outside the box)?

 It has to be just starting Crossfit to begin with after not having any lifting background whatsoever.  I missed the competitiveness of playing sports and getting back into something with similar characteristics was rewarding.

– What is one goal you would like to accomplish in the next year?

 Keeping the injuries low and just keep going.

– What advice can you provide to people new to the box?

 Taking the time to learn the correct techniques will pay off in the long run.
