When Wes first started Crossfit he felt he was already fit and was looking to try something new. “I have always worked on staying in shape and living an active lifestyle and considered myself “fit”. After my first few WOD’s, and a bit of a reality check, I realized the definition of being fit had changed and I needed to step it up.” He had been doing a regular gym routine for years and was bored with it. “Crossfit was a welcome change and challenges you in ways that few other workouts can.” Now Wes feels that his overall fitness has improved and he has become a more well-rounded athlete.
Wes quietly goes about his business at the gym. Don’t let the silver hair fool you. This dude with a six pack kicks ass and is one of the nicest guys you will meet. Take your time to say hi, you won’t be disappointed.
