Q – Tell us a bit about yourself?

A – I’m 44 years old, a father of three beautiful girls…Laynie (22yrs), Maddy (14yrs) and Shae (13yrs) and a husband of 15yrs, this past June, to the love of my life Gerry-Lynn. Outside of Crossfit I play competitive volleyball in the Co-ed league here in GP and the beach volleyball league in the summer.

 

Q – How long have you been a member at Vo2max?

A – I started at VO2Max in the summer of 2012 (I think…that was a long time ago). I started with Tarik personal training.  After 3 years, Tarik moved on and I started Crossfit classes.

 

Q – What lead you to start your fitness journey at Vo2?

A – At the age of 38 I was suffering from chronic lower back pain and my doctor told me “get used to it, you are getting to the age where that is normal”.  That just didn’t seem right to me.  That combined with my family history of heart conditions I felt it was time to get serious about my health…I wasn’t ready to sit down, take a Robaxacet and wait for a heart attack.  

What brought me to VO2Max specifically was that I had met Janine a few years earlier when she trained my wife for a fitness competition. I heard Janine and Brett had started a gym so I stopped in to see what they had to offer.

 

Q – What is your favourite workout/movement?

A – I really enjoy the gymnastic movements incorporated into Crossfit, pull-ups, C2B, muscle ups (bar or ring) and the HSPU (although it is my most challenging movement).

 

Q- -What do you do for work?

A – I am a part owner in West Rock Inc. We are a staffing agency geared toward Oil & Gas well operators as well as shutdown support for the Pulp & Paper industry.

 

Q – What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?

A – Most times its my age…guess I’m not really good at growing up lol. Beyond that, people get surprised that I actually do have a job…since I do spent a lot of time at V02Max 😉

 

All I have to add is…the athlete is only as good as his or her coach. The support over the years from Brett, Janine, Ron, Mike, Ryan and Tarik have really challenged me to be the best that I can. The weights keep getting heavier and the reps faster, without their encouragement and the support of the V02Max community, it would all be a lot less satisfying. Everyday, I leave with a smile and a sense of accomplishment. Thanks V02Max

Oh ya…one more thing…I still see the same doctor and now he tells me I’m in better shape than he is 😉

Q – Tell us a bit about yourself?
A- I’m a Proud Football Mom to my 17year old son.. I basically follow him around to games and camps and love every minute of it!

Q – How long have you been a member at Vo2max and what lead you to start your fitness journey ?
A – I registered for the challenge in January 2017 and I have been hooked ever since. I’ve always enjoyed spending time in the gym but for the past few years the gym got dull, I fell out of love with the same old workout routine and I found I wasn’t pushing myself as hard as I should be. Getting myself to the gym was beginning to be more of a chore then something I looked forward to and eventually I stopped going. I tried a few places here and there but knowing Janine from ages ago I thought that Vo2 Max was a gym that was going to push me to my limits and I was right! The facility is top notch, the coaches are knowledgeable, welcoming and really push you to attain your best workout.

Q – What is your favourite workout/movement?
A – Box jumps / DB snatch

Q – What do you do for work?
A – Advertising Specialist at 97.7 Rock

Q – What is one thing people would be surprised to learn about you?
A – That besides going to boot camp at Vo2 max I also practice Pole.. it’s a different type of exercise that I absolutely love!
