Oscar has been a member of CrossFit Slipstream for seven months! He attends class multiple times a week, so most of you already know him! He’s a super social guy and talks to everyone!
Oscar is currently training for The Bourbon Chase Oct. 16-17. It’s a 200-mile relay race along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail! Wish him luck!
Oscar shares a few of his thoughts about CrossFit with us:
1. Why did you decide to try CrossFit?
I chose to try CrossFit because it makes a great balance training program. It combines strength, cardio, and flexibility/mobility in each class. Also, I can do more having a coach and an entire community pushing me to perform my best!
2. How is having a CrossFit coach changed your workout or fitness results?
If I train by myself, yes, I can do some workout and get some results, but training under a coach is totally different. I know exactly where I am, how I need to workout to achieve the goals that I want, how to modify some exercises if I’m injured, and the right technique for heavy weight lifting.
3. How has doing CrossFit affected your health and/or life?
CrossFit helped me to improve my athletic performance, my overall strength, and flexibility.
4. What would you say to someone who is thinking about trying CrossFit?
I would say just do it! Give it a try for a month at least. If someone is looking to bring a positive change in his or her physical health, CrossFit is a great path!
