In depth with Raymond

Did you exercise before CrossFit Preferred? 
I trained for a Ragnar race 6 years ago, but that’s the last time I did.

Why do you train at CrossFit Preferred over a regular gym?
I like working out with a group. I like the variety of the workouts. But most of all I like having a coach to instruct and to motivate me during the work out.

What is your favorite exercise?
Thrusters. No other exercise makes me want to give up more :). But I also enjoy Double Unders.

What is your least favorite exercise you are working on?
Back Squats.

What is your age?
41 years old.

Have you lost weight? How much?
I am 15 pounds lighter than I was when I started 10 months ago.

How has it helped you with everyday life?
I’ve never felt better about my physical condition. I feel healthier and stronger than I’ve ever been. I also have more energy.
