1) What (who) brought you to Industrious?

I spent a few years at CrossFit Lynnwood (Local’s Gym) and then when I accepted a job at Premera, I took a look at Industrious and I never looked back!

2) What is the most significant change-whether social, physical, mental…you have experienced since you have been here?  How long have you been a member? 

I’ve been member for about three and a half years. I’ve always been pretty driven when it comes to my health and fitness (primarily in endurance sports), but perhaps the most significant change was being able to workout with such an amazing and special community of people. So much so, that even though some of my time might be better spent on some sport specific fitness, I tend to be willing to sacrifice those workouts for time at Industrious.

3)  What is your favorite thing about Industrious? 

Again, for me it is the people. Second to that for someone with a bit of an OCD/Perfectionist leaning… it is the professionalism by which the gym operates from top to bottom. Everything from the owners and coaches, to how things are so well organized and kept clean and up-to-date.

4) What are your goals or aspirations for this year?

While I do try to be age-group competitive in endurance sports such as triathlon and running, my primary goal every year is to simply live out the Industrious slogan of Work Hard. Live Fit. I want to be healthy for as long as I can so that I can both enjoy the here-and-now with my beautiful wife and enjoy the future – loving on the next generation starting with my children!

5) Share one thing we do NOT  know about you!
