Let’s learn about Steven!
How and when did you get started with CrossFit?
I started doing CrossFit in November of 2016. My good friend Daniel Cain was a member at Deep Well and I was working out on my own not enjoying it at all. I was just going through the motions like most people. Once I saw how much Daniel enjoyed going to the gym and his results, I decided to drop in one afternoon. I fell in love with CrossFit and this gym immediately and have been a member ever since.
What is your favorite movement or workout?
My favorite movement has to be the clean and jerk especially when they are in a workout.
What is your least favorite movement or workout?
My least favorite movement would have to be rope climbs mostly because I’m not a big fan of heights. Being pushed to overcome that fear at the gym has made them start to grow on me though.
What are your long term and short term goals?
My long term goal is to always keep improving and getting stronger. As well as set a good example for my daughter to stay active. Short term goal is to do my best in this years open.
What would you tell someone who is on the fence about CrossFit and scared to try it?
I would say that CrossFit is not as intimidating as it seems. You will find people of all different levels of fitness, who all have something you can learn from and get better. These are the most judgement free group of people I have ever been apart of which is really what makes it so great. If you try it just once you will be hooked.
What kind of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting CrossFit?
My overall fitness is at a place I never thought it would be. The programming we have and the coaches we have at Deep Well have gotten me to surpass all my strength goals so far. I have also gained more muscle than I ever thought my body could.
What is your proudest accomplishment so far?
Personal accomplishment muscle ups! But above all else is having my wife becoming a member of WELLfit Bootcamp and seeing her enjoy it and my daughter loving being at the kids classes!
What kind of changes have you experience in your life since starting CrossFit that you didn’t expect?
I have way more confidence in myself than I ever did before crossfit.
What do you love most about Deep Well?
The people! I can’t imagine having a better group of people to push me to get better everyday!
What are your hobbies, interest and/or talents outside of CrossFit?
If I am not at the gym, I’m hanging out with my family and chasing my daughter around! CrossFit has really become my biggest hobby.
