We love celebrating our members in all they do, BUT the ones who serve our country we will always hoot-n-holler a little louder for them – shout out to our Athlete of the Month, Brian Giller!!
He’s been consistent & regular, quiet & fierce for the last three years! We will always be his biggest cheerleaders and are looking forward to cheering him on in all he does. We want you to learn more about him throughout this month:
What’s your athletic background?
I played some football in high school but the biggest impact was on my athletic background started when I was on active duty in the Marine Corps. The Marine Corps has probably the most intense physical fitness test of all the branches and is scored based on your maximum amount of reps for pull-ups, push-ups, sit-ups, and a 3 mile timed run. I have held myself to a high standard of fitness ever since.
When did you start working out at CrossFit Osiris?
I believe I started around June of 2018
What keeps you coming back?
Many things. I enjoy the camaraderie and the competitiveness. I can push myself harder and farther when I’m working out within a group setting and there’s a clock running. Most of all, I enjoy pushing my own fitness beyond what I can achieve on my own, and I love that about CrossFit.
If you could write the WOD, what would it be?
I think it would be interesting for others outside of the military to try the Air Force EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) physical fitness test, which consist of the following exercises: 3 dead-hang pull-ups, 48 sit-ups in 2:00 minutes, 40 push-ups in 2:00 minutes, and a 1.5 mile run in under 11:00 minutes. These are all the minimum passing requirements but you want to do as many reps as possible. EOD is open to males and females so the standards are the same for both.
