Meet Eric, our May Athlete of the Month!
Meet Eric, our May Athlete of the Month! Eric may be a little quieter than others and stays in his own lane, but he is a boss! He shows up to dominate, even though he doesn’t realize it. You will notice a charming smile, quick wit, and humbleness that makes him a special part of our crew. When he’s not working his full-time job or at the gym, you’ll find him at a kids sporting event or out on the lake. We love having Eric as a member and loudly cheering him on. Learn a little more about him below:
What’s your athletic background?
I always loved playing sports and tried many different sports at the youth level. In high school I played football as an outside linebacker and defensive captain. I also played four years of high school hockey as a goalie and continued playing hockey into college at River Falls, WI.
When did you start working out at CrossFit Osiris?
My first workout at CrossFit Osiris was when Vanessa was preparing to open. Our workout was ‘Move the artificial turf from Adrenaline to Osiris for time’. Wow, that stuff is heavy! Glad we had a good group of founding members to help out.
What keeps you coming back?
I like CrossFit because an hour workout can kick my butt and all I have to do is show up, no figuring out what I’m going to do for a workout. Also, the amazing people and coaches. The people make it so much more fun!
If you could write the WOD, what would it be?
Hmmm… definitely would be a partner workout that is cardio-based. Just leave thrusters out of it and I’ll be fine.
What are some of your goals, fitness or personal?
My fitness goal is to be in as good a shape in 15yrs as I am now. It’s a battle against age!
