Member Spotlight: Jake Wood
Tell us a little bit about yourself?
26 years old originally from Lufkin, TX but have been in the Galveston area for 3+ years now. I work for an investment real estate brokerage and enjoy A&M football and the outdoors!
How long have you been doing CrossFit and how did you get into it?
Started crossfit in June of last year after a coworker finally convinced me to try it one day.
What were your thoughts after your first CF workout?
I have not been working out my legs nearly enough!
What were your goals when joining CrossFit?
To get in shape for a trip a few months away
You’ve improved tremendously since starting with us. Talk to us about that and what got and kept you motivated.
I started to get in better shape for a trip I was going on, then realized this stuff works. Having a coach and working out with many of the same people every day pushes me harder than I ever pushed myself working out on my own.
What has been the biggest obstacle in your journey? The open was very humbling, but also showed me what things I needed to work on the most
Do you have any special memories/achievements during your time here? Doing Murph for the first time was brutal but really cool to be a part of.
Favorite WOD/ least favorite WOD: Favorite : Annie Least favorite : anything wallballs
What advice do you have for people just getting started? There are some days I don’t feel like showing up and working out but I’ve never regretted doing a wod after the fact. Just show up, consistency is key!
