Carousel CrossFit Member Spotlight: Chris Healy

How long have been a member at CCF?
I became a member at Carousel CrossFit in March 2015.
What is a typical day like for you outside of the gym?
I am an early riser. I enjoy my morning coffee while watching Good Morning America. I like reading books, doing crossword puzzles, shopping with my girls, taking care of my family, and am always looking forward to working out in the evening.
What do you enjoy most about CCF?
CCF provides a comfortable environment for working out with my family and friends. The friends that I have met through CrossFit have become people I enjoy spending time with outside the gym. The coaches are both friendly and knowledgeable; and the facility is both wonderful inside and out. Overall, it is a really great atmosphere.
Do you have any tips for someone who is interested in starting CrossFit?
“The box” can be a very intimidating place for any new member. The loud music and banging weights scared me at first, but I soon realized there was no reason for me to feel that way. Everyone is so friendly that I felt welcomed from day one. For anyone who is thinking about joining, if I can do it, so can you!
My proudest CrossFit accomplishment is:
CrossFit has helped me gain the confidence that I needed both inside and outside the gym. It has also pushed me to learn to work out of my comfort zone. I am now doing things I thought I would never do!
Tell us something that we don’t know or would be surprised to learn about you.
