“…CrossFitting has kept my cardio and speed at the same level or better on my bike.”
Reid Westphal, who celebrates his one year anniversary at CrossFit 317 next month, is our feature for Member Monday this week. Read on to learn how CrossFit is playing a role in Reid’s life, and supporting his passion for cycling.
What were your first impressions upon joining CrossFit 317?
“If I live through the first month, I’m buying a t-shirt. I have almost all this equipment at home, but would never push myself this hard on my own.”
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“I’ve had to buy smaller shorts, as I have lost several inches off my abdomen and around 20 pounds due to utilizing Kelly’s nutrition plan.”
How does CrossFit 317 meet your health and fitness needs?
“I have been a cyclist most of my adult life for fitness and racing, and have not lifted weights consistently until now. Even though I have cut back on my cycling, CrossFitting has kept my cardio and speed at the same level or better on my bike.”
Do you have a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“I used to hate a lot of the movements, now I only hate a few (thrusters, overhead squats).”
What’s your favorite part of CrossFit?
“Spending an hour with other adults (who are not family), as I work out of my home office with my wife.”
If asked to sum up 317 in one word or phrase, what would it be?
Outside of the gym, what activities and hobbies do you enjoy?
“Spending time with my wife and kids, cycling, virtual car racing, and attending High Performance Driving Academies.”
