What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
I was never much of a gym guy. Always active, playing hockey, I never enjoyed going to the gym and couldn’t find a partner to push me to go. I heard from a friend who had been doing CrossFit for a while and he swore it was nothing like a regular gym. I headed out to the first intro class that same weekend, spent the entire post-workout explanation trying to not pass out but it was all I needed to stay motivated. Working as a group, pushing your limit every class because the person next to you is doing the same and continued learning as you try to master the lifts and the gymnastics!
What was your first impression? How has that changed?

What are you working on improving now in CrossFit?
What is your favorite CrossFit Westmount memory?
There is not one single moment I can think of. As some of the members know, I have been a member for 2 years now but have been quite inconsistent in showing up (this has changed!) What I can say is my favorite memory at the box is seeing how everybody keeps progressing and keep pushing their limits. How even if I didn’t show up for a month, I’d still get a warm welcome and people seemed genuinely happy to see me back! The community feeling at CF Westmount is very strong and that’s what keeps me coming back (and Hisham too.)
