CrossFit is about Functional Fitness. I like to have people think about the skills and lifts being done during the WOD and how they apply to everyday life. (Ex., lifting a 50lb of dry dog food from the ground, carrying it in your arms or over the shoulder, it’s vital that each should be done with proper form.)
Do you have any success stories among your athletes you’d like to share?
Just my own, but that’s still being written. I’ve been overweight, there were times the only workouts I got were from softball leagues. I was a restaurant manager that wanted something else, then I joined CrossFit and have been striving to get better every since, a better athlete, a better coach, a better me.
If ‘Rudy Soriano’ was a WOD, what would it be?
Wish I could say it’s all the movements I love doing but that’s not what life gives you. My WOD will knock you down constantly but you’re going to keep getting up and be happy you persevered. So it’ll most likely involve a butt-ton of burpees. ;)
BTW, I don’t like burpees. If you see me doing them fast it’s because I just want to get done with them.
What’s your biggest goal and what are you doing about it?
Biggest goal is to make a career out of coaching. Right now, I’m just putting my nose to the grindstone and trusting the process. It’s all leading in the right direction.
What is your favorite cheat meal?
While eating clean, I always dream about rolling a pizza like a burrito and going to town on it.
What is your favorite movement?
Any Olympic lifts, (mainly cleans and snatches)
What is your favorite thing to WOD in?
I Love Target they have everything so I usually find my favorite gear there.
