“…to be able to live my life at a high level for as long as possible”
Long time CrossFit 317 member, Jeff Porter offers a glimpse in to how CrossFit plays an important role in his life. Read on and then join us as we remember fondly his brush with fame (we may be using that term loosely) as a CrossFit model (again, we use that term loosely).
How has your training at 317 impacted your life outside of the gym?
“My main reason for doing Crossfit is to be able to live my life at a high level for as long as possible. Right now that means being able to keep up with my two kiddos by playing and doing whatever crazy thing they can think up without being physically limited. To me, it’s one of the most satisfying feelings.”
Is there a 317 memory that you would like to share?
“I have so many I’m not sure any one stands out…but if I had to choose, it would probably be the staged signature booth Matt and Dave surprised me with after the IndyStar article was printed.”
What’s your favorite movement in CrossFit?
“Probably snatch and overhead squat.”
If asked to sum up 317 in one word, what would it be?
What do you love to do in your free time?
“Spend time with my family and friends, cooking, and doing projects around the house.”
