How did you discover crossfit / olympic lifting
I found Crossfit through one of my friends mom telling us to try it out.
My pre- training ritual usually is having a smoothie and playing some music to get me fired up to train.
My recovery ritual is on non training days i like to eat some dessert.
Favorite conditioning movement or lift
My favorite conditioning movement would be running and my favorite lift would be the snatch.
Favorite Arrowhead Tape
My favorite arrowhead athletic tape would be the black stretch tape.
How do you use Our Tape in Crossfit/Lifting/Training-
I always put the arrowhead athletic tape on my thumbs, when I Olympic lift.

A couple of my all-time favorite quotes:
"Everybody wants to be a beast, until it's time to do what beasts do!" - Eric Thomas
When I turned 50 years old I had my first bone density test which showed osteoporosis. My doctor told me to go do some weight bearing exercise. I was a power walker at the time. A friend of mine told me about Crossfit but it looked hard and scary. It took me over a year but in 2010 I finally went to the local Crossfit, Crossfit North Fulton, and never looked back!
