Name: Tim Cramer
When did you first start CrossFit?
Tell us about your sports & fitness background.
I played soccer growing up. I was in great shape through my college years and then joined the workforce and it all went downhill until 2 ½ years ago.
How did you first get into CrossFit? How did it go?
I actually met Brooke Schupp and she suggested I try (there was a beginner class starting in about a month from that date). I loved it. I never could get myself to be consistent just going to the gym. This was enough variety that it keeps me wanting to come because I never get bored.
What sort of changes have you seen in your body, health, and fitness since starting Crossfit?
I have lost about 25 pounds. My endurance has increased significantly (even though I still have a long way to go to “get in shape”).
What impact has CrossFit had on on your life?
I have been able to reduce my blood pressure medication to a very low dose. I have been able to go snow skiing with my family, which I never would have done before 2 years ago. I just feel better!
What is your advice for people getting started or thinking abut starting Crossfit?
Do it! Hang in there! You will be sore like you’ve never been sore before, but it’s worth it.
What are your hobbies, interests, and other talents outside of CrossFit?
I love golf. I have several rent houses. We have started snow skiing again. We have a 17 yr old and an 11 yr old. I have been married for 25 years.
