Meet Jason, our Athlete of the Month for March! Jason’s enthusiasm and hard work are contagious, and what makes it even more amazing is the fact that he has all that energy at the 5:15 am class, when most folks are still tucked in bed. Take a second to read about Jason, and you’ll also find that he has quite a sense of humor.
How long have you been working out at Body Armor? 14 months, but not quite long enough to completely humiliate Jill.
How many times a week do you CrossFit? One more than Jill
Do you have any background in athletics, such as playing high school or college sports? Played football from high school through college where I made fun of soccer players like Jill.
Do you participate in any sports or other physical activities besides CrossFit? No, that would be counter productive to my ultimate goal of defeating Jill.
What led you to begin CrossFitting? Even before I started at Body Armor, I knew I was training towards something special. Little did I know I would run into a 5’2″ brick wall in San Antonio–who is now my arch nemesis.
What are your current fitness goals, and how has CrossFit helped you achieve them? My current goal is to utterly humble Jill to the point where she quits CrossFit and moves away, but names her first born “Jason” out of the mutual respect gained through our very one-sided competition. I would also like to do a muscle up again.
What is your favorite WOD or movement? Fran, or anything I can beat Jill at.
What is your least favorite WOD or movement? Any WOD I can’t beat Jill at, or if there is a WOD named “Jill.”
Personal information I am a petroleum engineer by day (crime fighter by night) where I use my otherworldly skills to extract oil from the ground so that the hypocritical hipsters in California can drive their Hummers to the beach, where they fish for dolphins with six-pack rings and dynamite. I live in the Alamo Heights area with my family and lazy bulldog. In all seriousness, I really enjoy CrossFit and the atmosphere Paul and Liz have created. Jill, Ryan, and the rest of the coaches are great, and I can’t imagine working out at any other box.
