I think everyone who’s taken a class with Tim will be shocked that he hasn’t been awarded the member of the month yet! This guy has been with us since nearly the beginning, and he’s become a staple of the community. We can’t say enough good things about this man between his work ethic, his unique sense of humor, or his legendary breakfast club roll outs. Congrats, Tim!!
What’s your WHY? Why did you start coming to Firewall in the first place?
Mortality makes me nervous. I’m hoping to buy some extra time. Plus, mirror shock.
How long have you been at Firewall?
3 plus years?
What benefits have you seen outside of the gym from working out inside the gym?
When I’m working out inside gym, and I look outside the gym, I see a nice asphalt walkway, a used car
lot, several speed boats, and a fallen tree limb that is just now going to heaven. Those are all pretty nice benefits.
What would you recommend to someone who’s interested in joining?
Persevere, don’t give up, don’t be intimidated. ANYONE can do it. As Bob Wiley
learned, it’s all about baby steps.
Why do you consistently workout 27-30x/month?
I got no place else to go. And mortality makes me nervous.
What’s your favorite part about CrossFit?
The wide array and creativity of workouts. Fraternal/Sororal nature of CrossFit. Healthy competitiveness.
What’s your favorite part about Firewall?
The coaches, who are now probably my closest friends. I’m pretty sure. The great folks who work out
with me everyday and then sit around afterwards and chew the fat. Everyone’s abundant tolerance of
my bad behavior.
