#MemberCrushMonday: Jeff Cook
If this video was your Christmas gift and introduction to Chuckwalla CrossFit...would you run and hide or would you sign up with enthusiasm??
Jeff is a brave man. His experience at Chuckwalla CrossFit started when his neighbor called him out and bought him a month membership to Chuckwalla, which included the above video. Instead of running from these crazies, our #MemberCrushMonday rose to the challenge and gave us a try! Now he's training hard to BEAT this neighbor... Let's get to know him.
Jeff Cook, AFTER 3 months of CrossFit (April 2018)
"My name is Jeff! I am 37 years old, married to a great girl named Heather and have two fantastic and crazy kids Aidan (7) and Riley (5). I've lived in Phoenix for last 14 years. I am originally from Chicago but grew up most of my life in Santa Cruz, CA. I started CrossFit because I was living an unhealthy lifestyle and my jerk neighbor and friend Rodney Coty bought me my first month for my 2017 Christmas present. It also helped that it was wrapped with a nice video from Old Man Hazzy calling me out. But I'm glad they did. Over the last 90 days, I've lost over 22 pounds, added strength and improved almost every area of my health.
My favorite CrossFit lift is bench press because it's the one exercise I can crush Rodney in....so far. When not CrossFitting I enjoy coaching my kids sports teams, playing golf and watching my beloved Cubs/Bears sports teams.
For work I am a digital entrepreneur and leader which a specialty in ad tech and SAAS industries.
I look forward to continuing this CrossFit journey with Chuckwalla and friends.
#Thanks Rod for getting me started.
#Thanks John for making me do things I don't want to do like burpees EVERY Monday.
#Thanks Lauren for pushing me and making sure I have good form so I don't injure myself!"
