How has CFT impacted your life (any mental/physical changes?)

The 4th of July hero workout. That was the first time I had done a hero workout or been to the box with so many people. 

Where are you from? What do you do in your time off?

I am from Puyallup, Washington. In my free time I read, run, or watch Netflix, currently watching Star Trek Voyager.

A 3-day best medic competition for the army. 

What’s the most rewarding thing you’ve ever done?

An Ironman.
