190218 - Meet the Athlete Monday - DAVE!


February 12

My first job is managing a software quality engineering team, which means we find bugs in software.  My second job is being a landlord for rental properties.  

Husband, Don, and two awesome boys, Taber (6) and Rhys (3).  I also have a Shih Tzu named Lola.  

There isn't a lot of time for hobbies after work and kids.  When I have free time, I like trying new restaurants, going to movies, and playing old school Nintendo.

Favorite food? 
Pizza, or anything else covered in cheese.

Fun fact? 
I can name all of the My Little Ponies:  Rainbow Dash, Twilight Sparkle, Fluttershy, Applejack, Pinkie Pie, and Rarity.  Pretty cool, huh?

How long have you been doing CF? 
1.5 years

Favorite CF Move? 
Kipping pull-ups, but I really want to learn to do muscle-ups (without a band) because they are super cool.

Least favorite CF Move? 
Double-unders!  I don't have enough rhythm to get more than a few at a time.  

Why do you love CrossFit?
I have never been particularly athletic.  Now that I'm doing Crossfit, I'm still not athletic, but that's OK.  I am able to do tons of things that I never thought I would be able to do, like Olympic lifts and gymnastics.  Every day is challenging, different, and fun.  

What makes Choice City so special?
CCCF is awesome!  The coaches spend time helping everyone become a better athlete.  The community is so friendly and positive.  Not only do I get a great workout and leave exhausted, I also leave every session feeling happy!
