“No matter what life throws at Scott for his traveling work schedule, he without a doubt finds a way to get into the gym! He’s coming up on his 5 year Torque-iversary! We love having him at the gym” – Amanda

We asked Scott to tell us more about him!
I am in sales for a financial services and travel pretty much every week.  I have 14 year old twin daughters (who I am hoping will start CrossFit after basketball season!).  I live in Norfolk and grew up in Norwood; I have lived in MA my entire life with the exception of living in London for 2 years for my job.  With work travel and teenagers, I don’t get a lot of time to myself but when I do, I enjoy golf and anything Boston sports related.

What was it about CrossFit Torque that made you want to join? 
I wanted to change up my workout routine.  I had been going to the gym 4-5 days a week and just felt my workouts were stagnant and I was not getting the results I wanted.  I was definitely nervous going into the on-ramp program, but Coach Ali and Amanda were amazing and I was hooked!

What has kept you coming back to Torque day after day?
The coaches and the members are the best.  The support you get on a daily basis is truly amazing.  The fact that the workouts are so varied is one of my favorite things about CFT.

What is your proudest accomplishment thus far?
My proudest accomplishment is the fact that I can complete the workouts.  There are a lot of movements where I struggle because of my mobility restrictions, but the coaches always come up with alternatives for me.

What has been your biggest challenge? 
Anything that requires shoulder range of motion and mobility.  I still have a ways to go but compared to where I was when I first started, it is night and day.

Do you have a favorite movement to do?
Anything squat related (just not overhead!)

What piece of advice would you give to someone who is looking to start CrossFit but hasn’t yet?
I would just tell them to not be intimidated and that while the WODs are challenging, they are doable. Also that “you lose it if you don’t use it” so get moving!
