In the Best Shape of his Life!
Congratulations to Creek Owen, the BSC November 2021 Athlete of the Month!
Where were you in your fitness journey before BSC and where are you now?
Before I started coming to BSC my fitness and the way I took care of my self was fairly poor, I never really exercised and had a pretty unhealthy diet. That all started to change though soon after joining BSC, I started coming and doing the CrossFit classes usually 5 days a week and started cutting more of the unhealthy choices out of my diet. Its been a little over a year now since signing up and honestly I don’t think I have ever been in this good of shape at any other point in my life, I have lost quite a bit of weight and it seems like I am constantly getting a little faster and stronger and it feels really great.
What were your goals when you started and have you achieved any of them?
So initially when I signed up for Crossfit, the main thing that I was looking to get out of all this was to lose some weight, I didn’t really have to much of an expectation on how much I wanted to lose in the beginning I just knew that I needed to get to something healthier. I do feel like a have achieved this goal in a lot of ways but I do feel like there is more work to be done.
What about BSC makes you keep coming back?
I think that it is the great atmosphere of BSC is what keeps me coming back, the coaches and the people that come here are very encouraging to one another and it seems like everyone is here to not only improve their fitness, but to also have a great time while doing it, you couldn’t ask for a better environment to be a part of.
When/what was your "ah ha!" moment?
I think my ah ha moment was the first time that I was able to do a chin up without using a band, this moment was kind of big for me just because it was the first time that I realized that I was actually improving in my strength and fitness.
Does anyone at the gym (member or trainer) inspire you and why?
There are a lot of different people that have inspired me in some way or another during my time at BSC, like I mentioned previously with how encouraging everybody is and seeing how hard everybody works, that’s the kind of things that inspire me on a daily basis to coming here.
