Consistency is King for Strength and Skill Gains!
Congratulations to Gianluca Morescalchi, the February 2022 BSC Athlete of the Month!
Where were you in your fitness journey before BSC and where are you now?
Before I was training at Beaverton Strength and Conditioning (BSC) I had trained at multiple other athletic facilities while I focused on my basketball skills. During the summer in 2019 I started training at BSC at the Burn and Build classes. I really enjoyed the Burn and Build classes so not too long after that I finished on-boarding with Derick and started attending the CrossFit classes. Currently I attend the early morning CrossFit classes at 05:30 AM. I also really enjoy the OLY classes. I still enjoy playing basketball however with Covid I have decided to shoot hoops outside when I can.
What were your goals when you started and have you achieved any of them?
When I started I had a couple goals, one of them was to become consistent with how often I would attend classes. I have achieved that goal by attending the 05:30 AM class and going 5-6 times per week. This year I have made a list of 10 goals that I would like to achieve. I have already achieved one of them (Getting multiple bar muscle ups strung together.).
What about BSC makes you keep coming back?
There are multiple things about BSC that make me keep coming back. One of those things is the people and community at BSC. At 05:30 AM class there is an amazing group of people that I really enjoy working out with. And my mom- she drives me.
When/what was your “ah ha” moment?
My “ah ha” moment was when I realized that in order to continue to get stronger, I had to become more consistent with how often I worked out.
Does anyone at the gym (member or trainer) inspire you and why?
Someone at the BSC who inspires me is Coach Derick. Coach Derick inspires me because of his dedication to working out and getting stronger and his continuous dedication to help others continue to get stronger. The coaches and the community are amazing. They allow me to push myself and get better.
