#MemberCrushMonday: Cyrus French
Here is his story:
"I am from a city in Illinois called Elgin. It’s about 45 minutes from Chicago so I, like many other suburban dwellers make it easy and say, “I’m from Chicago”. I moved here about two months ago with my girlfriend, Gracelyn, because I was tired of taxes, flat land and polar vortexes.
I am the oldest of three; I have two younger brothers. I work for United Airlines as a ramp agent and because of the perks of the job; I have picked up traveling as a hobby.
I really enjoy CrossFit because I love Olympic lifts. I enjoyed the Olympic lifting portion of collegiate track but wasn’t so fond of the running. But since I had a scholarship for running, I didn’t have much of a choice. Here, there’s just the perfect amount of running and I love it.
Outside of CrossFit, I am a creative. I love to draw, paint and song write. I taught myself to play 5 instruments, so it’s fair to say that I’m never bored. In my free time, when I am not creating, I am either, gaming, studying theology, ancient Paleo-Hebrew, conspiracy theories or the Bible. (Like I said, never bored haha!) But mostly, I love exploring new places with my girlfriend and making the best out of each and every day. Some days it’s just about Netflix and ginger beer (which I can’t get enough of!)
My favorite lift is the bench press and my favorite workout is any workout with a 400m run (That was my event in track).
