#MemberCrushMonday: Michael Vizzerra
Here is his story:
What do you do outside of CrossFit? Outside of Crossfit I am a Financial Planner with Pacific Capital Resource Group in Kierland, I work mostly with small business owners and first responders. For fun my wife and I love to travel and go camping and hiking, we've had the pleasure of enjoying Havasupai Falls for our honeymoon. What is something about you that would surprise us?Something that surprises most people about me, I once killed, cooked and ate a rattlesnake in the Tucson desert, I was about 12 years old.
What do you enjoy? I love to cook, my grandmother taught me how and I have most of her recipes (my cousins and siblings got pretty upset when they found out I have her famous mac & cheese and tamale recipes). Which is why I need to workout, balance. Also, as a new father, its fun to have my daughter watch me bounce around the kitchen listening to Alabama Shakes, I can't wait to teach her how to cook. Why do you CrossFit? I do crossfit because It's challenging, the community is fun and supportive but most of all, I believe that mastery in life begins with mastery of self. And pushing yourself when you want to quit is the best way to master self. It's great that I get to show up, with no planning, no shortcuts and just kick some butt. What is your favorite CrossFit lift/workout? Deadlifts, they makes me feel like a superhero.
