What is your sports/fitness background?
I played Class B baseball, made the practice squad for 2 professional basketball teams (quite an achievement taking into consideration the fact that I started playing organized basketball when I was 17), and played 4 seasons of football…all of this while I lived in Puerto Rico. Since I moved to Maryland, I have been participating in basketball, softball and volleyball at work or in county leagues

What brought you to PCR?
My doctor told me I needed to make changes in my diet due to high cholesterol.  I made a comment to my Chiropractor about it and he recommended Coach Jamie to me. When I visited Jamie, she asked all the basic questions including how much I exercise.  After a few minutes of discussing this and other things, she asked me if I was interested in CrossFit.  The rest is history.  I got my blood tested this past April and my cholesterol level was lower…not where it’s supposed to be, but it is improving.

What are your fitness goals?
Just to stay in shape, which will help me to stay healthy so I can keep an active life style for years to come.

What do you see as your greatest improvement?
Lower cholesterol (of course!), and the fact that I am stronger.  It shows on my PRs.  They improve every time I “test”. The improvement reflects directly on the efficiency of the work outs and the excellent direction provided by the instructors.  Coach Bronson showed me that I have been doing squats the wrong way since day one.  Now, I enjoy my leg days.  Thanks Bronson!

What is your favorite and least favorite workout?
I hate them all, and I love them all. I just concentrate on the end goal, which is to stay in good shape and live a healthy life.

What’s your favorite PCR memory so far?
My first week at PCR when I met Bronson and Jamie, and that fact that they made me realize that I had been working out the wrong way since….ever.

In 1 word, summarize your PCR experience.
There is no one word that can describe my experience at PCR. There are many things that make the “box” awesome: the WODs that really challenge you every day, the instructors that provide us with the tools and skills to improve and who bring the best out of you, the people, the motivation, and support that we show for each other.
