Athlete Profile: Theo H.

By Steve on July 12, 2013 in Athletes, CrossFit

TheoWhat do you do for a living?
I am a NASA engineer.

How long have you been CrossFitting?I started in January, about 6 months.
Which class do you normally attend?
5:30 p.m.

What do you like best about it?
I definitely like the fact that the workouts are planned for me.  I like learning the proper mechanics of not only the lifts but form in general for all the exercises.  And, not to sound too much like a commercial, I love the supportive nature of the rest of the athletes.

What do you struggle with?
double unders…don’t miss!! it freakin hurts!!

What have you improved most?
kipping pull ups, I haven’t quite gotten the hang of those yet.

What’s the last book you read?
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern

Favorite D.C. restaurant/hangout
The Red Derby

What would people be surprised to learn about you?
On occasion I do a little stage acting.

What do you do for fun when not CrossFitting?
Gardening and home improvement projects.

Any final thoughts?
I think the best thing is I am having a blast going to the gym for once and the result is I am starting to get into shape again!
