Aaron Jacobson | March

Congrats to Aaron Jacobson, our March CrossFit Member of the Month!

How long have you been doing CrossFit? 4-5 years give or take

What made you decide to try CrossFit? I had been lifting and doing fitcamp-styled HIIT programs at my old gym in the mornings before my nursing school classes and clinicals for a while. After I met my lovely wife, Monica, she convinced me to eventually give it a shot and try some classes. It wasn't too difficult to convince me since it's hard for me to say no to her, but I ended up loving it. I struggled with many of the gymnastic movements as well as snatch (which I still do) for a while, but I loved the combination of strength and cardio, which I had been separating for years. I also loved having a coach program everything for me, which is my least favorite thing to do. So I guess I'm a lifer now!

What did you think after your first workout? Well I believe my first one was Murph, which I loved and hated. After that I started trying some of the Saturday classes. Even though some of my HIIT classes could be tough, I had never felt the way I did after some of these classes - like I actually worked out for once! I was officially done making up my own workouts after that.

What's your FAVORITE movement? I think my overall favorite is double-unders. It took a while to master, but they're one of my strengths now. Also a big fan of cleans and I'm growing to love snatching

What's your LEAST FAVORITE movement? Burpee box jump overs. Full stop.

Any advice for those just getting started on their fitness journey? Listen to your body, but don't be afraid to test your limits - you might surprise yourself.

Would you like to give any shout outs to other members or coaches? Thanks Jenna for programming some tough-ass workouts. I'm getting better every day. Thanks Adam for hyping me up while I'm dying on Wednesdays. Thanks Kacie for being the athlete I judge myself against. And thanks to my amazing wife Monica for bringing me into the fold. I've loved every second!
