“My face was pure shock when I got above the bar.”
We’re learning more about Ryan Lurker for Member Monday this week. Ryan has been a CrossFit 317 member since October 2013. That’s a lot of burpees in that time! In addition to being a supportive member of the 9:30am crew, Ryan will soon be adding “Dad” as a new title in his life. We’re excited to help Ryan and his family celebrate and to meet the newest addition to the CrossFit 317 family!
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“I’ve become stronger and more confident going to CF317. It’s a great stress reliever.”
Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“I had the bright idea of trying a 20 rep back squat max cycle with Kyle N. It wasn’t physically demanding it was just a mental beat down twice a week. Without that push from Kyle I probably would have stopped at 260. I ended up lasting 6 weeks making it up to 315.”
What’s your favorite movement in CrossFit?
“My first bar muscle up in the open. It was the ugliest muscle up. My face was pure shock when I got above the bar. I looked around and was like what now?”
If asked to sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?
What do you love to do in your free time?
“Remodeling my house, smoking meat, fishing, and walking my dogs.”
