Congrats to our *better late than never* Member of the the Month of April, Jonathan Ard!
Jonathan is always good for a laugh, he works hard and listens well. He’s got a busy family and work life and still makes time for his health, he just keeps improving in the gym! We caught up with him and here’s what he had to say about his CrossFit Journey thus far. Check it out!
Q: What brought you to CrossFit in the first place?
A: I was out of shape and was living a very unhealthy lifestyle. A friend opened a CrossFit gym and convinced me he could make me stronger and healthier in 6 months.
Q:What was your first impression? How has that changed?
A: After the first warm up, I was wondering what I got myself into. Then I quickly realized that everyone in the gym wants you to succeed and helps each other out.
Fun with the #LoCoFam!
Q:What was your first “bright spot”?
A: When I realized that CrossFit has made me a stronger person physically and mentally. Locomotion has provided me with the physical fitness to be active with my family, and improved my mental toughness to achieve my goals.
Q:What are you working on now?
A: I am constantly working on my shoulder mobility and strength to perform a muscle up.
Q:What’s your favorite Locomotion Memory?
A: The open this year was alot of fun. It was the first time my family has joined me at the gym, and it was a great feeling having your loved ones cheer you on.
Gettin Swole like Dad!
Thanks so much Jonathan, see you around the gym!!
