What brought you to CrossFit Apogee?
Paul:
I came in my car.  haha. I drove past the box and thought, what the hell–this might be interesting.  Little did I know!  I have been physically active for quite a long time but was getting bored with running, swimming and cycling. Time to spice it up!

Greg:
Paul  approached me about this exercise program that he had investigated . It incorporated weightlifting and gymnastics and it sounded like something i wanted to try.

What was your first impression?
Paul:
I wandered in about 9 a.m and was greeted by Coach Lisa. She and Don explained the on-ramp program and I signed up. My first (and continuing!) impression is that this is a community of super-nice people having fun and improving their lives.

Greg:
How great the coaches were. Don, Lisa, and Mike, our on-ramp instructor, were very patient in explaining and demonstrating all phases of Crossfit.

What was your first Bright Spot (or something you were happy you finally did)?
Paul:
All the weight work was a new adventure for me. Bright spots come every time I get the form better or hit a new PR. ‘Gotta love ringing that bell.  But the real bright spots come almost every day as I get to hang with amazing, always-supportive people doing great things for their bodies. The Apogee posse has become like family and I’m proud to be the granddaddy!

Greg:
Every session was a challenge. The workouts were very difficult at first to the point of exhaustion. After months of workouts they just became difficult. There is a feeling of euphoria after completing the daily WOD. My fellow members are like family. You cannot meet a better bunch of supportive people.

What changes have you noticed in yourself since you joined the Apogee Family?
Paul:
Overall fitness.  Although I’m now a retired triathlete, I am literally in the best shape of my life,especially my core. I love inviting my kids and grandkids to punch me in my belly (except my son, Charlie who has also become a CrossFitter in Utah. He’d kill me.)

Greg:
I feel more physically fit. I am getting stronger and more flexible. I feel better about myself and my accomplishments.

What is your favorite Apogee memory?
Paul:
Seeing my buddy, Greg run!  He couldn’t run worth crap before this.

Greg:
My favorite  memory is how the coaches and members  make Apogee so enjoyable.  Also. watching Paul learn how to jump rope is locked in my memory forever.  Keep trying , buddy.  You will get it someday!
