What do you do for a living? I’m a commercial lender with Valley Bank
How did you hear about CrossFit and what was your first workout? I heard about CrossFit years ago through friends and family, but never thought it was for me. I can’t remember my first workout but do recall Billy telling me my form was terrible and to stop.
How many days do you CrossFit? What classes do you normally attend? I attend the 5:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. classes three days a week. Usually Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Favorite CrossFit movement/workout? My favorite CrossFit movement is the clean.
Least favorite CrossFit movement/workout? My least favorite CrossFit movement has to be double-unders. While I’ve gotten better, they still have a way of completely exhausting me.
What motivates you/keeps you coming back to CrossFit Mudtown? The friendships made and the encouragement you get from the coaches and other members. Plus, it’s the best workout I’ve ever done by far!
Most embarrassing/funniest gym moment? I was rotating sides on the rig while doing pull-ups and hit my forehead pretty good because I didn’t notice the second level bar on one side. Best part…I’ve done this twice now with more in the future I’m sure.
Favorite thing about Birmingham? It’s the perfect size city for me and it doesn’t hurt the food and beer scene is pretty great too.
What accomplishment are you most proud of (outside and inside of the gym)? Outside the gym: Being a dad to two amazing kids. My son Sam is 10 and my daughter Layton is 7. Inside the gym: Surviving each class and wanting to go back for more.
What is your favorite meal? My favorite meal is probably steak, potato and broccoli.
What are some of your interests outside of CrossFit? I enjoy hunting and fishing when I can, but also spend a lot of time at different sporting events for the kids.
What is one goal that you are currently working on? I would like to learn to play the guitar. My son has been playing for about 3 years and at this point I just don’t think I’m going to catch up soon enough for my liking.
Do you have a hidden talent? I asked my family this question and they returned with blank stares. I guess I’m a pretty boring person.
Tell us a fun/interesting fact not many people know about you. I’m half Korean. My father is from good-ole Eutaw, AL and my mother is from Seoul, South Korea.
